CND™ AT THE MET GALA
One of the biggest fashion events of all time, the Met Gala never fails to inspire us with manicures that steal the show. This year brought some serious nail game as we partnered with iconic Celebrity Nail Artist Eri Ishizu and Thuy Nguyen to design unique nail looks for celebrities including Hailey Bieber, Addison Rae, Gabrielle Union and Ciara.
Thuy Nguyen used one coat of CND™ Field Fox for Hailey Bieber, which paired perfectly with her stunning dress. “Hailey had the idea of dressing it up with just a few Swarovski crystals at the tips of her nails that tied the look together with the crystals on her dress incredibly.”
For Addison’s look, Thuy Nguyen used two coats of CND™ Field Fox and created a thin red line of nail art with a classic red in CND™ First Love. “I wanted to contour the red to the shape of her nail on only one side to go with the detail on the bustier part of her dress.”
Gabrielle Union’s nail look created by Thuy Nguyen, took inspiration directly from her dress. “After months of sketching, we landed on the look! I prepped an oval shaped nail with CND™. We started with two coats of Negligee and with a liner brush, I used Lady Lily, Black Pool and Silver Chrome to create the nail art design.”
Eri Ishizu built beautiful length to enhance Ciara’s natural nails and pair with Ciara’s fabulous dress. Eri used CND™ Silver Chrome for an added metallic bold look.
“Silver Chrome was also used for Ciara’s pedicure to complete the look from head to toe. I then finished Ciara’s cuticles with the iconic CND SolarOil™ to keep her nails and cuticles hydrated!”
