CND and Chillhouse Combine Forces to Create a Mani Runway Show of Your Dreams

by Raven Ishak

This year’s NYFW beauty looks took runways by storm with an array of metallic shades; clean-slate, bright-skin canvases; and witch-length nails that would make your nail beds extremely happy. But with each season that arrives, comes fashion and beauty trends that leave us wishing we could take each look from runway to real-way without having to wait a whole season. Well, actually… maybe you no longer have to.

CND has recently launched a faint-worthy press-on nail kit called Nail Jewels by CND x Libertine that is inspired by Libertine’s fashion shows and will instantly make your jaw drop to the floor. CND’s nail artists have spent over 10 hours crafting each mani set with rare vintage Swarovski crystals, high-quality metal chains, and paillettes, and is protected by a custom jewel box. The Nail Jewels by CND + Libertine are housed in a collector’s gift set—which also includes two different CND Vinylux Long-Wear Polishes that will complement the jeweled sets. Only 60 sets were made so whether you decide to wear the gold or silver set, we guarantee these nails will be the center of all of your conversations.

So to highlight these jaw-dropping designs, we decided to throw a mani fashion show of our own—because, honestly, what else would we do? We incorporated eight of Chillhouse’s new fall designs dressed in CND’s new polishes, five designs that LadyFancyNails created for CHROMAT (from this and last season), and CND’s Nail Jewels.
