NY Fashion Week F/W 10
For two seasons in a ROW I’ve missed the Vena Cava show and it’s killing me! Each season butter LONDON’s Nonie Creme works with the designers behind Vena Cava, Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock, to create a custom nail color for their show and they have all been stunning.
Last February it was the knock-out British Racing Green that launched last Fall. This past September I was at a blogging conference when Nonie mixed Artful Dodger and Royal Navy to create a stunning cobalt blue. And now there’s this…
Nonie, you’re killing me!! When I saw Nonie backstage at the Betsey Johnson show, I had to ask about the shade all my beauty blogging pals had been tweeting about. Marrow was given its name by the designers and it’s a deep purple with this slightly dusty look to it. Though it’s the flecks of glitter that really made my eyes pop. Though Nonie told me that the mix used for the show had more glitter than what we’ll see when Marrow hits shelves.
Are you dying over this color or what? That’s what I get for flying in a day late. You better believe that won’t happen again.
Welcome to CND Monday, a regular series here on ALU. Each week I’ll be sharing a new layering combination from CND Colour & Effects to show you the versatility and creativity of the line.
With the exception of my unworn bottle of MAC Studded, the new matte polish from the Riveting collection, I actually completed my NYFW NOTD Challenge this season. I ended up getting something top secret and very special applied to my nails on Day 6 so that nixed my planned MAC mani. I’ll tell you about soon but in the meantime let’s talk about Day 5.
As I mentioned at the beginning of the challenge I planned out my color according to the brand I’d be seeing that day. Since CND worked on 20+ shows throughout the week, every day could have been CND day but I chose Tuesday since they were working with The Blonds that night. The Blonds are known for their outlandish designs and over-the-top nail looks so if there was a day that green polish was in order, it was Tuesday.
I could have just thrown on a couple of coats of Green Scene and called it a day but I wanted something a bit different. I chose to create my own version of a Jade gemstone using Cream Washed. Check out my look after the jump!
