CND held it's "Nail Style Competition" and Anna Nelson has been named the winner!
Anna, a stylist at the Cutloose salon in Fairfield, California, was one of 650 artists to enter the online competition.
The winning look incorporated CND’s Colour &Effects using a combination of Oilslick, Ice Blue Shimmer and Sapphire Sparkle to create the unique animal print. “I just played with all the polishes and this winning design was a spontaneous finish,” she told me. “I was inspired by the new CND nail polish collection….especially the new Colour & Effects.”
“It was a very difficult task to select finalists from the large pool of talent,” says CND co-founder Jan Arnold. “We ultimately based our judging on layering, design work and unique execution – and Anna Nelson’s nail style exhibited all of these winning traits.”
The prize is a real goody. Anna has won a trip to New York to join Jan Arnold at New York Fashion Week this February to see the fall/winter 2010 collections. Not only will she get the opportunity to shadow nail techs backstage and tour the nail studio as the CND Team prepares some of its more complicated nail designs in advance, but she will join Jan, front of house, for several of the most important shows. “I’ve never been to any fashion week shows,” says Anna. “This is a dream come true.”
