CND (Creative Nail Design, Inc.) recently announced legendary Vietnamese-American actress, philanthropist and Lifetime Achievement Awards recipient, Kieu-Chinh, as the official Brand Ambassador for new CREATIVE PLAY Nail Lacquer. The reveal occurred during I Heart CND, presented at Best Lil’ Nail Show in Texas on Sunday, April 24 at the Humble Civic Center.
CND and Houston-based distributor, Nationwide Nail Supply, joined forces with the first annual Best Lil’ Nail Show in Texas, a three-day industry event consisting of 28 education workshops and a tradeshow, to host a day of shopping, education and fun for salon owners and Nail Professionals. In addition to the big announcement, I Heart CND attendees enjoyed an opportunity to meet both Kieu-Chinh and CND Co-founder & Style Director, Jan Arnold. NAILS Next Top Nail Artist Season 3 Winner, Winnie Huang, was also on-site to provide product demonstrations and meet with fans.

She is an inspiration to CND and our fans, and her influence will prove instrumental in spreading awareness about our new line!”
Best known for her role in the film, The Joy Luck Club, Kieu-Chinh has worked in the motion picture industry for nearly six decades. Following the end of the Vietnam War in 1975, Chinh became a refugee and moved to the United States under the generosity and sponsorship of actress and pioneer of the Vietnamese-American professional nail movement, Tippi Hedren. Hedren ultimately helped Kieu-Chinh find success in Hollywood.
