Dubbing this look “Garden Chic”, alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection was inspired by 18th century tarot cards and mystic gardens. The contrasting patterns and lush hues as seen in the collection compliment the three different nail designs CND created for the presentation.
First look: a fresh take on the French manicure, with a crescent swoop of dusty rose down one side of the nail and a single palm leaf down the other.
Second look: a neutral nail with intricate leafing around the perimeter. By rounding the nail with leaves, it slims or “contours” the nail.
Third look: a slightly tinted base layer, embellished with cascading clear crystals.

Jan Arnold and her CND team were so impressed by my similar alice & olivia spring collection look, that they insisted I rock the nails that were being used in the presentation.
