HOW TO NAIL THE NEW WEAVE

It was all about the weave backstage at the Rodarte show at New York Fashion Week.  It wasn’t about hair, but nails.  CND did this amazingpale pink  basket-weave manicure on the models.  They took a combined 150 hours of manual labor to complete—requiring CND’s Michelle Huynh and her team to paint a custom-blended dusty pink lacquer onto wax paper strips, which were left to dry overnight. The next morning, they cut them into even smaller slivers and applied them in a cross-hatched pattern over the nails for a mixed-media effect.

    Cute – but beyond ridiculous for any real person, in terms of time = cost.

    No work at all and I love it! It’s no work b/c I would gladly pay to have them done. I never do my own nails.
