CND's new Crystal Alchemy Collection for holiday and winter 2019 is a partnership with Swarovzki. "Our goal with this holiday collection was to showcase the unique qualities that make Swarovski crystals the best in the business," says CND Co-Founder and Style Director Jan Arnold via press release. "From their one-of-a-kind radiance to the sense of opulence people feel when they wear them, we wanted to bottle that up so that everyone can channel it into flawless nail looks that elevate and perfectly reflect their personalities."
At a media event at Tips Nail Bar a few days ago, lovely nail artist Ana Mae V said, "let's do both!" when I couldn't decide between CND Shellac in moody Powerful Hematite and pretty Divine Diamonds for my empty chevron soak-off mani.
Thanks, Ana Mae! We'd still be there if you hadn't made that suggestion. And I love it!
Here's a look at some images from the CND Crystal Alchemy Collection, as well as the bottle shots and shade names.
Anyone else got #grabbyhands for those stunning rings, and those earrings too?
Lovely Quartz is an interesting shade you must see in person. It has a green shift! So cool. Rebellious Ruby is packed with shimmer, and that Sassy Sapphire is a stunner. I didn't get a great bottle shot at the event, but here's a little video so you can at least see them...
Just found this CND Crystal Alchemy video online; thought you might like to see it too.
The CND Crystal Alchemy Collection hit salons last month. Have you tried any of these shades yet? Does any of them call to you?
