CND at New York Fashion Week – Day 1 Giveaway

By on February 12, 2011
in CND, Giveaway, NY Fashion Week F/W 11
Thursday was the first official day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and CND worked with designers Jenni Kayne, Irina Shabayeva and Wayne. The looks of the day were grown-up grunge, chocolate velvet, and textured tough.

From a multi-layered neutral to a mattified vamp to architectural nail art, there was quite a diverse range of nail styles to choose from.  See which design was my fave of the day and win the products used to create it.

At Wayne, Wanda Ruiz created a velvety chocolate manicure (that was good enough to eat!) using Raisin in the Sun topped with Super Matte. Paired with a wine-stained purple lip and pale matte makeup, crimped hair and urban armored silhouettes for a modern day Victorian look.


At Irina Shabayeva, Roxanne Valinoti created Sci-fi, Spanish influenced manicures with Fire & Ice contrast using texturized jet black and retro bright white shades.


For Jenni Kayne, Angi Wingle created a blushing taupe manicure using one coat of nude opaque Desert Suede, layered with Copper Shimmer, washed out with a coat of semi-sheer patina Rose Water and topped with Super Matte. This grown-up grunge nail accentuated poppy magenta lips and stick-straight locks.

Jenni Kayne NYFW CND Nails

Even though I’m not necessarily a neutral girl, something about the combination of colors at Jenni Kayne speaks to me. I think it’s the Copper Shimmer.  It looks super flattering and is definitely a combo I want to try at home.  Even though we’re talking fall fashions, wouldn’t it make for a fresh spring pedicure?

For your chance to win one bottle each of Desert Suede, Copper Shimmer, Rose Water and Super Matte leave a comment telling me your favorite look from Day 1 (you don’t have to agree to win).

Entries will be accepted until Midnight EST. Leave a comment and make sure you include your email address in the comment form, but not the actual body of the comment (for privacy reasons).

***This giveaway has ended but please continue to comment on your favorite nail look. Thank you to everyone who entered.***

  4. KatieM says:

    Wanda Ruiz created a velvety chocolate manicure is my favorite

  5. sara says:

    I think my favorite is also the neutral palette, but probably because I’m so ready to be done with dark colors! This winter is actively trying to kill me!!

  6. jill says:

    I think I like the sound of the last one, with the many layers of creme, sheerness, and glitteriness. I think I’ll try something like it with my stash

  7. Taylor says:

    The Jenni Kayne was my favorite for sure!!! I have been trying to find a neutral look that is not dull, and this fits the bill!

  8. Susana says:

    I love the Wanda Ruiz look. Short nails in vampy colors are my favorite!

  9. Mayumi says:

    i like the Irina Shabayeva look the best!

  10. Anne says:

    Oh, but I *do* agree! That is a gorgeous look, and one that would look good on short nails as well as on long.

  11. kirsty says:

    enter me please :D

  12. Jill says:

    I’m excited to try out the super matte!

  13. Casey says:

    I love the look by Jenni kayne, I’ve never had the guts to try light, neutral polish (I think it ages my hands a bit, I

  14. Kajsa says:

    Jenni Kayne! There’s something about that pink color of her lips in the combination with her tips, that makes my heart go BOOM BOOM!

    I’m not that into those kind of shades on the tips, but it looks great together.

  15. Louise S. says:

    Wow looks gorgeous!
    I like the sci-fi look – it’s kinda cool for those special occasions!
    I’m currently working on my mani for tonight – neonpink with nail art stickers in the shape of flowers. I’m going to a 80-s theme party! :-D

  16. Lisette says:

    I love the chocolatey manicure.

  17. Mary Jane says:

    Jenni Kayne’s look is fresh, would love to use it on my toes!

  18. Candy says:

    fav has got to be the look for Jenni Kayne! absolutely gorgeous, even though i don’t usually like nudes!

  19. ritterbraten says:

    I liked the last look best of all, I like nude polishes in general. Thanks for the giveaway =)

  20. Anne says:

    I really love the neutral look. You can really use this look all year but especially in the spring ?

  21. Kelly says:

    Like you, I also usually shy away from neutral colors but there’s something about the copper shimmer taupe combo.

  22. Cinthia Garcia says:

    My favorite look was the chocolate manicure

  23. Ter G. says:

    I totally agree about neutrals…I’m not a fan. But I’m loving the neutral look @ Jenni Kayne.

  24. Tia says:

    I like the Wayne look the best. I think its the most versatile look up there!!

  25. Aoife says:

    The third look for Jenni Kayne is definitely my favorite. For some unknown reason I have been straying into nude-nails territory for the past few months, its been a total turnaround from the bright colors I wore for years. And the problem now is my collection is FULL of brights and vampy colors but no natural colors… so my new obsession can only be enjoyed one natural-color purchase at a time!

  26. Beth K. says:

    Look #2 is my pick because it’s art, and over the top. This is the kind of look that inspires more modest interpretations for the rest of us.

  27. Although I’m not a fan of nudes (for myself especially) I acutually like the Desert Suede/Copper Shimmer combination a lot!
    I have the Copper Shimmer and Rose Water already… I’m gonna play around with some other combinations later on today ;)

  28. Christine says:

    Not sure if it’s too late, but I *love* Angi Wingle’s blushing taupe manicure. I want to try that combination.

  29. Jenni Cloud says:

    My fav would be the Wayne look. I love anything with shades of purple! Plus the crimped hair just brings back memories of the fun & funky 80′s!

  30. peripatetic33 says:

    i like the blushing taupe manicure best, i am already partial to copper shimmer, i love it over medium browns like Zoya Dea

  31. smALtY says:

    My fav is the Chocolate manicure!

  32. Kate says:

    I usually go for the darker shades, but I definitely like the Jenni Kayne look the best. I think what tipped me to that look was the nail comination with the straight loose hair and those hot lips – does that color happen to be commercially available BTW? The nail color is not too white or too pink and looks lovely with the model’s pale skin. It’s a shade I can envision on me (I’m also pale with straight hair), and makes me actually want to try wearing a neutral!

  33. Lauren says:

    I’m with you… I’m feeling the Desert Suede, layered with Copper Shimmer and I’m betting it looked even better in person.

  34. Brooke says:

    I’m shocked, but I’m loving the blushing taupe mani! It doesn’t look washed out at all. Very nice!

  35. Amber Lynn says:

    I love the Wanda Ruiz creation :) It’s so pretty. Lately I’ve been into dark short nails. I have no idea why cause you can tell when the have bad chips but I love the look :)

    Have Fun at FW :)

  36. Amelia's Mom says:

    Raisin in the Sun w/ Matte. Guess I’m still stuck on dark colors. Spring, hurry the hell up! :)

  37. Lara says:

    I am obsessed with the Wayne look – though that could be my inner chocoholic taking over. I’ve always loved dark brown nails, and the models look so gorgeous and fresh faced!

  38. Barb Dyer says:

    I am torn between the neutral and the chocolates. I can see myself wearing both styles, but I think I am leaning more towards the neutral right now. Thank you for sharing these combos.


  39. Jennifer says:

    I love the raisin in the sun with super matte. I’m a sucker for dark colors!!

  40. Appy says:

    That first one looks so gorgeous! I love the near-black of it. Of course, now I’m hungry and craving chocolate…

  41. Anne M says:

    I like the Wayne look the best. I always like dark manicures and the brown gives it a different look than all the black/purple/navy versions.

  42. Eleen says:

    I like the one with for Jenni Kayne, it looks sophisticated and chic.

  43. Jana says:

    I looooove the Jenni Kayne look! Natural, without being boring.

  44. Joy W. says:

    “Copper Shimmer” – what a gorgeous neutral! Can’t wait to try it :)

  45. Andi Stone says:

    Loving the vampy dark chocolate look. And the nude make up just makes the nails pop even more!

  46. Lisa says:

    I also loved the Jenni Kayne look; i think that would be a totally hot spring/summer pedicure. LOVE IT!

  47. Elizabeth says:

    I like the copper shimmer too. It’s an office-appropriate mani that will still make you feel chic.

  48. TLM says:

    Thanks Michelle! These look beautiful & I hope to win!!! I love the third look using a neutral.

  49. terry says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne look…x))

  50. Lisa says:

    I’d have to go with the Wayne look. I’ve been really into the dark polishes recently. It’s such a nice contrast with the neutral make up, it really pops the nail color.

  51. Victoria Folino says:

    My favorite by far is copper shimmer! I just love how it’s almost completely neutral on the skin, but still has this warming effect against it! it’s beautiful and gives me hope that spring may be coming soon (hopefully. LOL)!

  52. Monik says:

    I know that I don

  53. lam says:

    I know I am in the minorty here, but I just love a beautiful neutral nail.

  54. melissa says:

    OMG! Raisin in the sun with Super Matte is soooo gorgeous!

  55. Lillie says:

    The chocolate.

  56. MM says:

    Ooh – I love the combo of colors for Jenni Kayne. Subtle enough to be work-appropriate, but not boring at all!

  57. Abby De Jesus says:

    What can I say, I just love these colors. They are
    a perfect collection to have and kick off Spring!

  58. Shana says:

    I agree with you — I love the standout neutral at Jenni Kayne

  59. Megan says:

    I LOVE the matte Raisin in the Sun most, though the Jenni Kayne combo is gorgeous and interesting.

  60. Regina says:

    I agree that the natural look is my favorite. I’m curious as to how it would look next to a darker skin-tone. Overall, Day 1 looked great!

  61. Caroline says:

    That velvety chocolate manicure from Wayne is my favorite!

  62. tahillia says:

    I agree with you. My favorite is DEFINITELY the Jenni Kayne look- both the nails and makeup. It’s really elegant and understated but still very pretty. I like the Wayne look, too, but I like that the Jenni Kayne look is very wearable for a couple of seasons. The chocolate nails are very fall/winter to me (and I know it’s supposed to be a fall/winter look but I’m not in that frame of mind right now :P).

  63. I love the Jenni Kayne combination!!

  64. Kathryn says:

    love that neutral look from Jenni Kayne. its kind of refreshing to see the neutrals when there’s been so much bold colors lately!

  65. Vesta says:

    I also love the Jenni Kayne look. So pretty.

  66. Kat says:

    loving the desert suede

  67. Renee says:

    They are all so beautiful! I’m a new polisher (having bit my nails for 30ish yrs this is so exciting). I wear loads of browns lately and was just thinking I need something that would go nicely with that… but then the neutral is so rich. Lovely!

  68. Elisabeth says:

    Never thought I’d say this but I think I like the third look the best. The lips just pop!

  69. Freddy says:

    I love the jenny kayne one. It looks really natural and pretty!

  70. Amy says:

    My favorite would have to be the neutral look… I think it looks great!

  71. I love the first look. It reminds me of the movie sleepy hollow.

  72. Gina D says:

    i liked the velvety chocolate manicure.

  73. Caroline says:

    I’m going through a HUGE nude/natural phase right now, so of course Jenni Kayne’s my favourite! :)

  74. Lynn says:

    The third look from Jenni Kayne, it’s so perfect for spring, it’s neutral yet certainly not boring and I definitely want to try it at home, I love it!

  75. Leslie says:

    I must be craving spring right now because I’m loving the neutral look from Jenni Kayne.

  76. Amy says:

    I actually like the third look the best, it looks fresh, clean and spring-like.

  77. Cheri says:

    I love look #1 the chocolate one!!

  78. Guenevera says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne color! That’s more layers than I can usually handle doing for myself, but if I were to have them all in front of me, I think I could manage!

  79. Styrch says:

    I’m digging the Jenni Kayne right now but I think it might have to do with the copper pairing with the ultra pink matte lips.

  80. Andrea says:

    I like the Jenni Kayne look best. The contrast between the muted nails and wild lips is an interesting touch!

  81. Annie says:

    I’ve been on the neutral nail kick lately. I think nothing is chicer, so the Jenny Kayne look is a winner in my book, too.

  82. Ann says:

    My favourite is Jenny Kayne’s! It’s so pretty!

  83. auroragyps says:

    The nude look by Angie Wingle catches my eye even more than the other two looks. That says something, since it’s a nude. Really nice and I love that the look is achieved by layering 4 different polishes.

  84. ena says:

    My favourite is the chocolate manicure.

  85. janet says:

    i love the jenni kayne nude look!

  86. Erica says:

    I like the Wayne look. I’m partial to vampy, dark nail polish.

  87. Cherry2000 says:

    I like the black and white one the best. It’s clean, and edgy

  88. Erin says:

    I actually like the Jenni Kayne look too! I never wear neutrals like that, but I like that combo. I also like that it is on short nails. It looks chic that way.

  89. Holly says:

    Jenni Kayne, definetly. I love pale opaque nails. I am also in love with the magenta lipstick, I hoope that look translates well off the runway this spring. I will be rocking it.

  90. Misch says:

    i totally love the look at Jenni Kayne! i love neutrals, and this combination is just so pretty :)

  91. Barbara says:

    I adore the third look, it’s definitely my favourite! I love the combination with the bright lipstick. Besides, her nails look like a nude nailpolish I own and love myself. Plus, I also wear that one pretty often, so it’s definitely one of my go-to looks considering my manicure..

  92. I liked the Sci-fi, Spanish influenced manicures with Fire & Ice contrast using texturized jet black and retro bright white shades.

  93. Jen Phifer says:

    i love look number three. i’m not usually a huge fan of nudes, but this one is just so perfect!

  94. Elise says:

    I love the first look, for Wayne. I’m just really into dark nails and I like the contrast with the very light, subtle makeup.

  95. Brenda says:

    love the raisin look. I’m a little old fashioned I guess because I really like nails with color no matter what the trend!

  96. Julianne Q says:

    The first look is absolutely my favorite. It’s gorgeous!

  97. Meredith S says:

    I love the first look – so dramatic!

  98. Kristen says:

    I like the Jenni Kayne the most too! I feel like the dark, vampy look is done so many times that it’s just not as unique now. Even though the nail art trend is huge right, I’m not a huge fan of the talon look that fasion is falling over. The last look is creative twist on nude and is refreshing!

  99. Amfitrith says:

    The nude one is uber-chic! I love the idea of matte top coat over neutral nail polish!

  100. K says:

    I quite like the last look :)

  101. Melody says:

    Like you, my favorite is definitely the one from Jenni Kayne. It’s so slightly off from being mannequin hands that I’m totally drawn to it. While I’m a huge fan of bold nails, subtlety is gorgeous, too!

  102. Katie says:

    The Jenni Kayne look is my favorite!

  103. Frances says:

    I agree, I really love the neutral look… probably the awesome photography helped it!

  104. Amy says:

    Normally I’d be drawn to the chocolatey colours… but I actually really like the Jenni Kayne neutral nails! I think it may be the way it blends so well with that model’s skin colour. Her colouring actually looks similar to mine, so I think this is definitely something I need to try out!

  105. Ofelia says:

    I love the third one! So clean and fresh!

  106. keri says:

    The Jenni Kayne look is definitely my favorite by far, I’ve been really interested in neutrals lately so I guess that’s why.. and those lips! Swooning over here.

  107. Alex says:

    The Jenni Kayne combo is the winner in my book. I’ve never seen neutral look so exciting.

  108. Allison says:

    I am LOVING Jenni Kayne’s look. I’m not big on neutrals most of the time but it looks fantastic paired with that bold lip colour, and the two colours are super flattering on her.

  109. DawnM says:

    My fave is the chocolate!

  110. Vettelicious says:

    I must say I’m digging the nude matte look of number three :) Even though look two is definitely more artsy.

  111. Jennifer says:

    I love the neutral. simple and clean.

  112. PinkCheetah says:

    I’m surprising myself as well and loving the clean, fresh look at Jenni Kayne. Would be sublime with a hot pink pedi like the lip color it was paired with (Nars Schiap, perhaps?) or a bright coral-y red like Essie Silken Cord (which I’m wearing with a CG Pelican Gray mani right now and loving!).

  113. Hilary says:

    I LOOOOOVE the Jenni Kayne look! And there is something about that matte, fuchsia lipstick that is just stunning!

  114. Paz says:

    Love the Blushing Taupe look. For a neutral it’s warmness is so versatile that it would look great for any season! Love!


  115. Natalie says:

    I’ve got to go with number 3, Jenni Kayne with those gorgeous Desert Suede and Copper Shimmer nails. It’s a lovely nude but with enough of a peachy/pink combo to be original. I’m so digging those colors! Right now I’m sick of Winter and snow so I’m boycotting my dark polishes in protest! Bring on Spring and perky manis for now. When April rolls around I’m sure I’ll be back to Mismas and Wicked. There really are no seasonal rules for nail colors anymore, in my opinion. Have a blast at Fashion Week!

  116. Amy says:

    I love the Copper Shimmer- one of my favorite looks is neutrals with a little shimmer to make it interesting!

  117. HAT says:

    I like all three, just depends on my mood for which one I would pick on a given day.

  118. michelle says:

    definitely feeling that Spanish inspired manicure! loving dark shades right now but sometimes it’s nice to change it up and go neutral too!

  119. Abby says:

    I have to agree with you! the look at Jenni Kayne was definitely my favorite of the three- i like the soft makeup with the bright lip, and the neutral nails. I’ve really been wanting a good neutral polish lately, so i’ve been drawn to lighter colors as a side effect of that haha! And like poster Regina above me, i was curious as to if they kept the same polish for darker skin tones, or if they polished each model’s nails according to her skin tone so each model had a nice nude nail look.

  120. Margot says:

    Definitely the Wanda Ruiz for Wayne look. Darks are my thing!

  121. ruth says:

    i’m a fan of the neutral manicure too even though i usually prefer colors. i think i’m just sick of the winter and the dark manicures remind me of the cold….

  122. amanda says:

    I love love love the look at Wayne!

  123. Kristen says:

    Angi Wingle’s taupe look is really beautiful. I agree this would be perfect for spring!

  124. Robin says:

    i love the neutral one too! I usually hate when it looks like someone doesn’t have nails because they blend in with your skin tone but i love this look! Enter me!

  125. TygerKitty says:

    I think my favorite is the look from Irina Shabayeva; it’s eccentric and over the top – although the other two are more wearable for the everyday gal, I can’t help but fall in love with the flair of the fashion world!

  126. Haley says:

    I love the neutral nail. I wish I could find a color that suited me for a look like that.

  127. Medina says:

    oooohhh, whatever that middle look is with the nail art..

  128. Donna J says:

    I gotta go for the first one, I love darks and chocolate, it’s beautiful!

  129. Cathy says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne look very much but I could never think of the combo! Great work CND!

  130. Stephanie says:

    I am totally in LOVE with the copper neutral look. I am so glad you got the info on how to achieve it! Thanks for always being on top of the nail trends! =)

  131. Cecilia says:

    The Irina Shabeyeva look is my favorite! It’s so runway appropriate. I’d probably wear this look in a much shorter version.

  132. Julia says:

    The Natural look is really decent, I’d love to have such a color that suits my skin. :)

  133. Kirsten says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne look. I am all about a neutral manicure (pedis can go wild). The color looks really wearable and the idea of shimmer in it puts it over the top for me. I love the sneak peeks you give us – thanks!

  134. Krystal S. says:

    I like the natural look the best – the rest are just too gaudy for me.

  135. Jmy says:

    Hands down velvety chocolate manicure was my fav! Huge fan of the name as well!
    I would love to see another picture of the blushing taupe manicure. Maybe another angle?

  136. Lindsey says:

    Blushing taupe!

  137. Jennifer says:

    I am adoring all the nudes right now. Ready to put away the dark stuff.. I have to say I love what Angi did for Jenni Kayne, it’s a beautiful combination!

  138. Lorinda says:

    I would usually pick the darker shade, but there’s just something about that taupe! I love it. I’ve got similar coloring to the model, and I love how it looks on her.

  139. Brittany says:

    The third one is gorgeous! I am really loving nudes right now, which is totally weird for me since I usually love darker colors!

  140. Emily says:

    The third look, I love the way shimmer looks under a matte topcoat. Jenni Kayne’s look is awesome.

  141. Vicki Beever says:

    I love Jennie Kayne’s look! I think it’s a great spring look.

  142. Michelle says:

    I like the third look. There’s something about nude nails and a bright lip. It catches your attention but it’s not over-the-top.

  143. Allison says:

    I love the first and 3rd looks, but I think the nude nails is my favorite!

  144. Christina says:

    I love the nude nails. Always classy!

  145. Rachel L. says:

    I really like the neutral Jenni Kayne look. I know it’s sort of passe, but I’ve really been wanting to try the mannequin hand look!

  146. Tara V. says:

    I’m a sucker for dark nail polishes so I’m definitely lusting after the chocolate colors!

  147. Danielle says:

    I loved the third look from Jenni Kayne it was stunning!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  148. my favorite look is definitely the third one. it’s natural and elegant :)

  149. ania says:

    Sweet! I wish I could see the ice & fire nails up close…although personally I’d go with raisin in the sun anyday…:)

  150. Kim says:

    The third look appeals to me the most. :) Maybe because it looks like something I could pull off!

  151. Jasmine says:

    I’m a fan of the look at Jenni Kayne. I’m a fan of pinks and neutrals, boring as that sounds. :)

  152. Nadine says:

    I like the Jenni Kayne look!

  153. Meg says:

    I’m digging look 1…I really like a color I can sink my teeth into, and chocolates do it fo me lol

  154. khoo says:

    loving e pale makeup paired with the chocolate nails at wayne’s!!

  155. Melanie says:

    I really like the neutral taupe manicure. I usually wear much darker and less subtle polishes, so that looks like a fresh change for me. I am not sure about the matte finish though…I haven’t gotten on board with that!

  156. Ashley says:

    Look #1 is my favorite, though I will say that look #3 may change my low opinion of nudes!

  157. Maestra says:

    I love the neutral look! I like a good nude/neutral shade on my nails from time to time. But not as a pedicure. :D

  158. Janelle Z says:

    Love the nude look. It’s more complex and artistic than your average Jill’s nude polish.

  159. I wish we had a better view of the Irina show nails – I love black and white so I think that might be my favorite!

  160. Karla C. says:

    My favorite look is the Jenni Kayne desert suede topped with Copper Shimmer, so gorgeous!

  161. Sania says:

    Matte Raisin in the Sun for sure – love the vamps, and it has the name of a classic book!

  162. Melissa says:

    Love the Kayne look. The contrast of the polish to the lips is super fresh.

  163. Cat says:

    I wish there were better pictures of the nails for Irina’s show, but that combination of neutrals is really pretty.

  164. Lisa says:

    The third look is my favorite. But, I also saw a look on another site (by CND) that was blood red with gold smile lines – pretty amazing!

  165. Teresa says:

    I’m loving the raisin w/ matte look – but there is definitely something special about the copper shimmer. :)

  166. melanie says:

    I just love that chocolate manicure. Altought the contrast to the victorian look gives the girl a creepy look to the nail. Chocolate it the right color for those beatiful gils.

  167. Redz24 says:

    It would be the 2nd one, Irina Shabayeva =) x

  168. Kierra says:

    the third look is deff my favorite overall, i do like the nails in the second look tho.

  169. Megan C. says:

    The neutral look is so pretty and looks like it would be so flattering on so many skin tones!

  170. Cheryl says:

    I love the nude look! It’s seriously gorgeous in its elegance! The second photo looks promising too, but I can’t quite see the nails properly. It sounds very pretty though!

  171. elbee says:

    I love the third neutral look…totally way better than the Samoan Sand I slap on when I’m bored (and then curse loudly because the coverage is terrible! :P).

  172. Ebony says:

    I love the Sci-Fi look! I love how creative and different it is!

  173. Bea says:

    I love that chocolate mani! Edgy and fun and very anti-spring and summer…which I love…pastels are just too predictable!

  174. Riley says:

    Look #2 isn’t getting enough love! Catwalk fashions deserve equally fantastical nails. I vote for the embellished black & white manicure at Irina.

  175. Maggie says:

    The look for Jenni Kayne!!! The nude nails really accentuates the fun poppy magenta lips.

  176. Hanna M says:

    It’s the Wayne look for me… I do love to look at a neutral but they just don’t work for me, so the Wayne look is one that I would definitely wear!

  177. Cryssi says:

    I think the first, matte Raisin in the Sun, is my favorite. Chocolate? This time of year? Delicious! I like the nude look of the last one, though, I’ve always been kind of intrigued by that look.

  178. Veronica says:

    Oh definatly the third look. I love the makeup and everything and I’m a sucker for neutral looks.

  179. Chelsea says:

    I know you said we don’t have to agree with you, but I’m liking the nude look best, too. After all the greys and darks of winter it looks so fresh!

  180. taxi says:

    The CND neutrals are lovely. I like the nude-but-not-pink look, which gets color depth from the layered shades. My fave!

  181. Jay says:

    The first look! Loving the dark rich colors.

  182. Cookbook says:

    I like the third look the best, but I’m a neutral girl through-and-through. It’s really interesting paired with that super-pink lipstick, though!

  183. Wenqi says:

    I like Jenni’s look the best, i love how everything pretty neutral then the lips gives it a gorgeous pop of color!

  184. fuwari says:

    The third one, definitely. :) I love the bright lips + nude nails. (yes, I DO match my makeup with my nails LOL)

  185. Qian says:

    I really like the one at Jenni Kayne too!

  186. Smoochiefrog says:

    I wish we could see better pictures of the second picture’s manicure. Because we can’t, I’d say the nude look in picture 3.

  187. oh I am just eating up all thw #nyfw fun! I keep searching the hashtag on twitter and reading reading! Thank you for the pics and contest! I’m in heaven! The first look is my fav! The raisin nail with the wine stained lip! GORGEOUS! You lucky girl to be there! more nail fashion tweets and pics please!

  188. Beth says:

    I love the vampy look of the Wayne manicure.

  189. Bus says:

    The third look is absolutely my favorite! I love nude nails, but usually i chose a nude with a bit more shimmer. This flatter color looks absolutely fantastic! I would love to try it out.

  190. Eva says:

    I love the neutrals!! thanks for sharing!

  191. Bronwyn says:

    Love love love it all

  192. christina says:

    I love look #1! A mix of chocolate (nails) and wine (lips)…I couldn’t think of a better combination!

  193. Des says:

    I really like the first dark looks… ;o)

  194. Rachel says:

    I’d say number 3 as well, I love those almost but not quite the same as your skin colours!

  195. Amy says:

    I LOVE the Jenni Kayne look. I think it would be a pretty spring manicure too, rather than a fall.

  196. Dot says:

    I am loving the third look!

  197. Faith says:

    AHh! loving that desert sun color in the bottle. Wonder what it looks like on the nail. I really want to try CND…:)

  198. renee says:

    I like the Raisin in the Sun the best. I used to wear a similar color to that in high school before it was truly a done thing and everyone always loved it. I thought it was because of my darker skin, but it’s turned out to be a bit of a classic now for everyone. I also like the Desert Suede combo. Looks good on the model, not sure how it would look on me, though.

  199. Andee says:

    I’m with you, that’s a fantastic twist on mannequin hands.

  200. Jen says:

    I like the Jenni Kayne neutral simply because I love the contrast with the hot pink lip.

  201. Julie says:

    I like the architectural look with the white the best. I know it’s something I’d feel awkward wearing but I love seeing it on other people’s hands.

  202. Sarie says:

    I’m loving the nude copper shimmer look!

  203. Nokomi says:

    I like the nude with the hot pink lips. Thanks!

  204. CraZkCfish says:

    The Jenni Kayne look is also my favorite – clean and collected with just a bit of freshness and edge. Love it!

  205. Melissa says:

    My fave is definitely the Jenni Kayne, which is odd because I don’t typically like neutrals!

  206. Michelle says:

    The Jenni Kayne look is something I would wear on my toes for Spring as well as my hands. Of course once Summer hits, it’s color time!

  207. stript says:

    Wayne. Love dark colors, love purple, and love victorian. Win win win.

  208. Hollie says:

    I like look #3. I’m typically drawn to neutrals either, but I really like it!

  209. Naekubi says:

    I vote for the second one. Although I can’t see the manicure that well on the picture, the description is very interesting.

  210. adrienne says:

    they are all so great but I really like raisin in the sun with super matte. I’ve been into dark, short, matte nails lately. I think it’s these cold dark winter months.

  211. Maria says:

    From what I can see in the picture, the looks at Irina Shabayeva look amazing! Love that contrast.

  212. Angela says:

    I like the last one, out of the three.

  213. Trish says:

    I’m not a neutral nail kind of girl, but I really liked the Jenni Kayne look, it’s very pretty.

  214. Heather says:

    Look #1! I seriously heart dark nails.

  215. Annabel says:

    Hmm this is tricky, but I think I like Jenni Kayne the most, it just looks so soft and dainty, I would definitely want to try these!

  216. Kitty says:

    I like the last one. The lip color did it for me.

  217. Kelly says:

    awesome giveaway!! the colors are awesome. and all the nail looks are so cute!! :)

  218. Sara says:

    I’m definitely digging Jenni Kayne’s nude shimmer there. It’s not totally nude and just enough shimmer. Looks very classy. I also dig the bright lipstick.

  219. minh says:

    Definitely the first look although I wish we can look closer at the nails.

  220. Casey says:

    Raisin in the sun topped with Super Matte is BEAUTIFUL! I love dark colors with a twist. :)

  221. Crystal says:

    I like the first look the best, just because I love dark nails.

  222. Emily says:

    Look #3-I’m definitely a neutrals girl :)

  223. Ishah says:

    I love the nude look, I’ve been looking for a nail look that’s nude without being washed out and that one is awesome! It looks classy and understated.

  224. Adri says:

    I’m loving the last neutral look :) The lipstick also has a great “Pop!”

  225. vik says:

    I love the nude mani with bright lips combination!

  226. Kim L. says:

    I love the Nude Shimmer look!

  227. Chris says:

    The Wayne look – neutral is not for me. :)

  228. beata says:

    I love the last look the best, the nude with layered copper shimmer. (After a winter of vampy and glittery brights I’m looking forward to a light and neutral Spring.)

  229. Amaris says:

    I love the nude look! :)

  230. jennifer says:

    velvet chocolate!! so pretty.

  231. Char says:

    Neutrals are always my fave!

  232. Maribel F. says:

    I like the copper shimmer. I love it!

  233. Melanie says:

    I like the first one!

  234. Suiling says:

    I like a neutrals so I think my fave is the Jenni Kayne look, it seems more of a spring look (maybe it’s the pink lip…) but I’m loving that combo of nude nails and the pop of color for the lips…I’d use that in the spring more then fall :)

  235. Maureen says:

    I love the chocolate velvetly manicure the best!

  236. Cincly says:

    Yeah, I like the neutral :)

  237. Deb says:

    I agree – loving Jenni Kayne. I love neutrals, and the lipstick is gorgeous! It really stands out!

  238. Judith says:

    I love look #3. It is so classy and elegant perfect for everyday.

  239. Beth says:

    Look #1 for sure.

  240. Eli says:

    I love the neutral look, but I’m also a huuuge fan of neutrals. I bet the layering looks even more stunning in real life :)

  241. Monique says:

    I definitely like the first look the best!

  242. Erika says:

    i lovee neutral nails, the last one is definitely my favorite :)

  243. Chloe says:

    I can’t believe I’m saying, but the neutral is currently looking a lot more fun to me than the other two traditionally “risky” nails. It reminds me of Emma Stone’s understated, yet fresh, Golden Globe dress. Although I love my cold-toned gray neutrals, there is something about the warm-toned neutral that is flirting with boring-old-pink that is totally exciting me!

  244. Liz says:

    I like the last one sounds interesting but can’t really tell from the picture

  245. Awesome! Love the look on Jenni Kayne, very clean, and the lip color makes it pop.

  246. nikki says:

    LOVE the look at Jenni Kayne!!

  247. Savannah says:

    Jenni Kayne!

  248. kiki says:

    #3 Kayne
    the look is nice & balanced, not over-(or under- for that matter) done

  249. Jordan says:

    The nude look is very nice and very creative, love the layering!

  250. Lisa says:

    I like look from Jenni Kayne…

  251. Lauren says:

    I like Valinoti!

  252. Michelle says:

    Wayne is my favorite. Raisin in the Sun is a beautiful color.

  253. Jessica says:

    I like #2, it’s bold but also simple. Also reminds me a little bit of Japanese nail art.

  254. KMR says:

    Is there a dead-on picture of the second one? All I can tell from the side is that it’s got a lot of height to it.

  255. Tiffanie says:

    i love the jenni kaye nails! and that lipstick is lovely too.

  256. Sapphy says:

    I definitely prefer the Jenni Kayne too! I love interesting nude nails.

  257. Sara says:

    I’m really intrigued by the Irina Shabayeva, want to see more! It’s definitely the one that’s got me the most excited.

  258. Honey_lili says:

    Raisin in the sun is to die for ! love it.

  259. Brianna says:

    I like the Wayne look. I love dark nails, plus the modern day Victorian things is cool.

  260. Lizzy says:

    The Jenni Kayne is definitely my favorite here.

  261. Laura says:

    I also like look #3 from Jenni Kayne. Desert Suede is so pretty!

  262. Vivian says:

    I REALLY LOVE THE NUDE LOOK! Valinoti’s a little too over the top for me.

  263. Audrey says:

    i definitely am loving the jenni kayne look! really is a grownup grunge-neutral and pretty with an edge.

  264. Laura says:

    I love both the neutral and the chocolate colors. As a pale girl I like a bold nail!

  265. Angy says:

    the look at Irina Shabayeva is more particular…

  266. Silja says:

    Loving the nude nails in the last photo. So simple, so chic!

  267. Kristina says:

    I love the Irina Shabayeva, I love texture on nails though I’m not so good at doing them myself.

  268. girlygirl says:

    I love the Wayne look. I’m a very pale girl, so I think I could rock this look.

  269. Margaret says:

    Love the matte Rosewater look!

  270. NailPolishFan says:

    My favorite is Raisin in the Sun topped with Super Matte at Wayne.

  271. Theo says:

    I love the nude color look on nails. I never thought I would but it looks lovely and elegant!

  272. Andrea says:

    I like the look at Jenni Kayne; it’s fresh and girly and makes me look forward to Spring!
    So pretty. :)

  273. Valerie says:

    I’ve been on nude streak but this is add entirely new depth to what can be a very flat look. Love the name Desert Suede too!!

  274. Kristy says:

    I like Jenni Kayne’s take.

  275. Nicole says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne look!! I’m with you about not being a neutral girl, but I love how that color combo looks. I haven’t tried much layering yet, but I am willing to learn for that look :)

  276. Kelly says:

    Def Jenni Kayne, its my favorite.

  277. Faith says:

    The Wayne look rocks!

  278. Briana says:

    Im thinking look #3, a really great everyday look for the office with a bit of omph and sparkle so its not flat out boring.

  279. Mary says:

    I think I like the first look from Wanda Ruiz best; I love a chic dark matte nail for fall/winter.

  280. Andrasescu-Scrieciu Adriana Camelia says:

    I like #3 ,Kayne look, is so sweet

  281. Sarah says:

    I like Jenni Kayne!

  282. April Brooks says:

    I like the Roxanne Valinoti.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  283. Anna D. says:

    I like Valinoti!

  284. Lissette says:

    My favorite is the raisin in the sun look. It looks so rich in color.

  285. Jennifer says:

    I really like the neutrals from Jenni Kayne!

  286. Sarah says:

    I love the neutral look. Just a little pink goes with the gorgeous lips, but doesn’t overpower them! I don’t have any CND yet in my collection so my fingers are crossed :D

  287. MissMoses says:

    The Jenni Kayne nails for sure.

  288. Elizabeth says:

    I definitely am a neutral girl and the Jenni Kayne look sings to me!

  289. courtney d says:

    very cute! would love to try these!

  290. Gina M says:

    The Jenni Kane look is my favorite. It would be perfect for my office but also cute for a night out. I’ve never experimented with layering colors but I might have to start. Thanks for the great giveaway

  291. Patty says:

    I really like the victorian look by Wanda Ruiz. Looks great.

  292. Patty says:

    I am SHOCKED how in love I am with the Jenni Kayne look, but I have to have it!

  293. T says:

    I love the neutral look. It’s soft and pretty.

  294. Sarah says:

    I actually had to think about this one. I love the crimped locks and dark polish look any day of the week. But when I scrolled down to the Jenni Kayne look, I went “wow”. The simplicity and beauty of it really struck me. Bright lips, neutral (but certainly not “blah”) nails? Yes, please!

  295. Priscilla says:

    Jenni Kayne is my favourite because i love neutrals!

  296. Emma says:

    Love the desert suede layered with Copper Shimmer.

  297. Leigh says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne nude look!

  298. Deanna G. says:

    The Jenni Kayne look is definitely my favorite! :)

  299. Eugenia says:

    Hands down, my favourite look is the Jenni Kayne! Something about that hot pink lip, combined with the fresh face and clean nail, just works for me.

  300. Matthew says:

    the copper effect would be amazing over ANYTHING. i have put CND’s silver sparkle over all of my polishes. it adds so much depth!

  301. Matthew says:

    forgot my fav look! that would have to be #1. i love anything vampy.

  302. weny says:

    Love the nude layering look on Jenni.

  303. Jen says:

    #1 I think its a really great take on modern day victorian. Very sleek, stylish, yet simplistic. Totally love it!

  304. Camille says:

    I’m a big fan of the third look.

  305. Helena says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne look! Drool.

  306. Anna says:

    I like the chocolate Wayne manicure!

  307. Martha S. says:

    Oooh, I really like that nude look! But they’re all very nice!

  308. Keri says:

    ooh, definitely my favorite look here is #3 for Jenni Kayne. The nude is so subtle and pretty!

  309. Melissa says:

    I like the look from Irina Shabayeva. It’s different – not exactly work safe. I like that it’s creative.

  310. Zoey says:

    I love the last combo. I haven’t ever really owned a pretty nude and I think that combo is spot-on!

  311. Di says:

    I really enjoy Jenni Kayne’s look for her show. The nail is not over-powering, yet complimentary. Also, I love the lipstick!

  312. Katie says:

    Jenni Kayne, definitely. I love how the neutrals in her nails, skin, and hair are all in the same warm, caramel-and-creme family and really make her eyes and lips pop.

  313. Stephanie says:

    The combo at Jenni Kayne is amazing! Would love to recreate this look.

  314. Janet says:

    I like the third one too. Nudes are always nice!

  315. Min says:

    the first look, from Wanda Ruiz :) Raisin in the Sun topped with Super Matte

  316. Tammy says:

    Love the natural look..

  317. Vio says:

    #1 I just love dark nails.

  318. Tammy says:

    I’m loving the Jenni Kayne, too. Love the look of those nails with the contrast of the lips! Totally my style.

  319. ML says:

    I love the chocolate brown used for the Wayne show!

  320. MalybooBarbee says:

    #2 Is def my fave!

  321. Melissa says:

    I have to go with Jenni Kayne,even though I am not much of a neutral girl and it seems like a lot of work. It does look pretty!

  322. Krishji says:

    I love the Fire and Ice look, it makes me think of Chicana style in California, so glam and chic.

  323. Sara says:

    If I duplicate my comment here I apologize. I just don’t see mine, and I just wanted to put in my entry and say how much I like the Jenni Kayne look. The nude polish and the bright lipstick I think look the best of any of them.

  324. Caroline says:

    I like the Irina Shabayeva look the most! Even though I myself can’t pull off nail art, I love looking at it!

  325. Jennifer says:

    I like the neutrals too! I’ve been trying to do more neutral and natural makeup myself lately and would love to have a nail color to go with it.

  326. Zara says:

    That neutral is just perfect!

  327. MacKenzie says:

    I definitely like the nude look!

  328. Sharon says:

    I love the third look. I’m not normally one to love nude polish but the combination of the 4 polishes is absolutely gorgeous. Love it.

  329. Kristen says:

    Love the neutral. I tend to use neutrals as a sort of palate clenser. After I wear a lot of bright colors for a while a nice fresh neutral is great. :-)

  330. I’m not usually a nude girl either, but that color looks perfect on her! I’ve been trying to get more work-appropriate colors – I wear what I want, but sometimes when I have a meeting with a higher-up person, I feel guilty, so those neutrals are calling my name!

  331. Richard Cranium says:

    I like the first picture. The color adds to the not freshly dead look of the models, completing the zombie look.

  332. Drea says:

    love the jenni kayne look!! its such a beautiful neutral.

  333. autoxchica says:

    Jenni Kanye has a really good look. I like your description…grown up grunge!

  334. Crystal says:

    I loved the Desert Suede look!

  335. mini_pixie says:

    I love the matte Raisin look from Wayne! But the nude combo is really beautiful. Thanks for the contest! :)

  336. germaine says:

    definitely #1, i love vampy colours!

  337. kellyo says:

    love the dark look in #1, I’m all about dark nails this month

  338. Kristina says:

    Absolutely look #1! Love, love, love anything dramatic :)

  339. breeoxd says:

    I think I like the purple best- that dark vampy color provided a cool contrast. Neat looking! (tho I really want to try that nude look too!)

  340. Frankenstyna says:

    I love all of them! I there was a better pic of Irina Shabayeva. Sci-fi/Spanish influenced manicure?? Cool!

  341. lauriestrode says:

    I am not a nude girl either, but that look is actually quite beautiful – I would have chosen the Velvet Chocolate under normal circumstances, just in case you wonder ;-)

  342. Steph says:

    I’m loving the Jenni Kayne look. It’s really crisp and fresh, with just the right amount of drama on the lip. Very well done!

  343. Pattie says:

    I like Jenni’s look the best!

  344. Stephanie says:

    I really love the first one – I’m into colours like this the last months

  345. Nika says:

    the first look from Wanda Ruiz!

  346. Karin says:

    I love the second look! For me it stands more out then the rest and i just like it!

  347. Kim Tran says:

    Love the nude combe, beautiful

  348. Meddi says:

    The chocolate nails are absolutely gorgeous!

  349. Jywoi says:

    I’m not a nude person either but I love the mix from the Jenni Kayne show. So fresh and simple!
    Thank you for the pictures.

  350. Joyce B says:

    I liked the Jenni Kayne look. It was neutral-but-better.

  351. Medusa says:

    Does anyone know the name and brand of the bright pink lip color shown in the last picture?

    I love it!

  352. Lindsey says:

    The third one. It’s clean, fresh, and pretty– particularly on a short, squoval nail.

  353. Mara says:

    Definitely the Jenni Kaye look!

  354. Stephanie says:

    The Jenni Kayne look is my favourite ! :)

  355. Shayla says:

    I adore the Irina Shabayeva look with the white and black, a little too adventurous for everyday where, but I’m definitely gonna attempt a tamer version for a night out.

  356. Amy says:

    I totally agree – i never wear neutrals but could totally see the coppery pink working on a lot of skin tones and looking very fresh and clean.

  357. Patty says:

    I would have to say the 3rd one. Nice light for me.

  358. Leah says:

    I love the Jenni Kayne look!

  359. Jessica says:

    I love the chocolate nails!
