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.

    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.
