Candice Manacchio, CND nail designer, takes her title as a nail artist quite seriously and is constantly creating new looks and designs for CND, and for any client lucky enough to lay her hands on her table. While playing around with colors and the CND “Effects” line, Manacchio created what she calls the “Mood Technique,” a shimmering finish that creates a mood-changing effect in different lights and from different angles. The look is created by utilizing a base shade covered by three different “Effects” shades applied vertically from center, left and then right, all overlapping in the center. CND leaders were so impressed that this technique is now part of their seasonal training.
