This just in! While the CND team is working away prepping the models at Jason Wu we get word of a collaboration between the designer & CND.


Fashion designer Jason Wu is collaborating with runway manicure leader CND to introduce a limited edition Jason Wu Collection that honors iconic women through wearable, timeless shades. The set will come with 4 Colours and 1 Effect that can be layered to achieve the designer’s effortless yet elegant nail styles.

“Every season I play with different ways of using color in my collection, so it was a natural choice to collaborate with CND on a capsule of nail colors that reflects my aesthetics. Included in the set is my signature gray color,” says Jason Wu.

These fabulously femme Colours provide rich coverage and everyday accessibility:

Miss Wu – Jason’s signature limestone, warm gray that dries matte with subtle chrome sheen, in perfect harmony of masculinity and femininity

Brigitte – voluptuous warm pink that perfectly channels 50′s screen siren

Sophia – gorgeous mushroom taupe

Veronica – highlights the evolution of decadence with a blue-based, oxblood red

Anna Effect – layered over any of the four Colours provides a tweed finish via microscopic fibrous pieces that create cool, subtle texture

CND’s Torrie Savickis posted this pic via her Twitter.


Jason Wu and CND have joined forces on the runway for the past eight seasons. This color collection is Jason Wu’s first foray into nail products, and CND’s first designer product partnership. The full collection will be introduced at Jason Wu’s Spring 2011 runway show where audience members will receive a complimentary set.

The Jason Wu Collection will be available for purchase in salons and via in May 2011. Suggested retail price is $47. The collection will be sold globally while supplies last.

I don’t know exactly what a “tweed effect” will look like but I know I want it!  What say you?

    I don’t know if I can wait that long! I love how he describes the colors as if they were fabrics.

  2. steph says:

  4. I can’t wait to get my hands on this!! The colors look fabulous!

  5. minolah says:

    great team up! 8 months of waiting is definitely worth it, and I’ll have more time to save money. weeeee

  6. Rebekka says:

    I’m also intrigued by this “tweed effect”.

  7. Sophia says:

    Haha, the collection has my name in it! In all honesty, I’m not really feeling this collection at all. Kind of makes me yawn.

  8. Kelly says:

    This seems like the perfect mix of easy to wear colors. I really want to know what tweed is!

  9. Ebony says:

    I can’t wait to see swatches!

  10. Mel says:

    Ooooh, tweed! You got my attention — I can’t wait to see the effect.

  11. Laura says:

    I can’t wait to see actual swatches – they all sound awesome!

  12. Zemlet says:

    Sounds like CND should make some extra Anna to sell seperately! I won’t pay $47 for the whole set just to get my hands on Anna, but might go as high as $20 for it, if it is an unique as it sounds. Ms. Wu also sounds worth a look, so here’s hoping they consider selling them outside the set.

  13. Katy M says:

    Tweed! I’m all over this! Wish it was a fall release, though. It seems like Tweed isn’t really a summer effect…

  14. Rachel says:

    Tweed? Sounds like a matte top coat with fibers in it, like some Orly fiber thing I can’t remember the name of….weird. Do not want.

  15. Kimberly says:

    I have to wait til May?!? I want this NOW. I <3 tweed.

  16. emily says:

    These are such classy colors! Subtle but beautiful.

    Will these be sold individually? I hope so..

  17. Rebecca says:

    Ooohhh! I agree, I don’t know what tweed effect means or looks like but I want it! Pretty colors!

  18. bb says:

    A *tweed* finish? Now that sounds kind of awesome.

    (I heard Indigo Clarke didn’t like the CND collection though …? Maybe it’s an NYC vs. London POV thing.)

  19. Belle says:

    I love the designs of Jason Wu and I’m glad that polish companies are entering all sorts of collaborations. Can’t wait to see these polishes!
