As the CND Style Director Jan Arnold gave attendees an intimate, one of a kind lesson on how nail designs from the runway shows stem from pop culture. She also dished details about the inspiration behind CND’s fall collection. This seasons Modern Folklore collection is all about rich, embellished, textured effects for the nails. In addition to her role as Style Director she’s also a judge on the new nail art reality show Nail’D It!


It was such a pleasure to meet her. Her personality is captivating! She has a unique sense of personal style and during our conversation it’s apparent how passionate she is about beauty and fashion. She knows her stuff! I’m incredibly inspired and humbled when I have the opportunity to meet powerful and influential women in the industry. I couldn’t chat with the brains behind a beauty empire without asking about her nails. When I saw them I immediately pulled out my iPhone to snap a pic. She explained the process of creating this textured design and as you can see they are inspired by stained window glass.

I was extremely impressed by the CND Education Ambassadors. At nail stations throughout the store the nail artists demonstrated nail art designs and holiday inspired looks using CND VINYLUX® colors and nail foil.


If you aren’t familiar VINYLUX® Weekly Polish is a breakthrough polish that actually lasts for 7 days without a base coat.  The technology behind this polish is amazing. The exposure to natural light activates the ProLight Technology™  so that over time the wear becomes more durable.
