CND worked on the tips of 22 shows this past New York fashion week. What better people to ask about trends then the ones who create them?
Here, CND's official Fall Trend Forecast:
"This Fall, manicures are emerging in waves of rich jewel tones, earthy and worn shades, and comfortable colors - as cozy as a boyfriend's t-shirt," says CND Co-founder and Style Director, Jan Arnold.
Eccentric, old world charm takes center stage this season with eminent dark jewel toned nails that accessorize bold satin and chiffon, off-kilter tweeds, wild jacquards and sumptuous velvet fabrics. Prince William and Kate Middleton aren't the only royal marriage in the future - runway manicures unite lavish eggplant purple with decadent gilded gold. For opulent nails, use CND's limited edition The Look: Fall 2011, comprised of Midnight Sapphire deep cobalt blue crème, Dark Amethyst velvet aubergine crème and Sheer 24K Sparkle gold lamé effect. These brand new polishes were seen on the runway at Sachin & Babi, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jen Kao and Monique Lhuillier.
