Mischo Beauty Fashion Week Coverage: The Creative Nail Design Studio #NYFW

So I'm still on cloud 9 and still processing all that I was able to see and experience at Fashion Week! Please, please accept my apologies for the slow posting! At any rate- I was able to visit the Creative Nail Design Studio at Fashion Week and was blown away! You see, Creative Nail Design taught the nail course while I was in cosmetology school, so I was familiar with their philosophy and product line. And, you all know I love their SolarOil and Spa Marine Masque! It was so amazing to see the nail color concepts/ideas, learn the steps for execution/production and then see the final nail colors on the runway.

The sheets above show the Spring and Summer nail color lines for 2009. I learned that each color for the Spring and Summer 2009 lines is a custom blend, using the current nail colors from Creative Nail Design.

The photo above shows the current colors used to create the Spring or Summer nail colors. We were also able to see what nail colors designers such a Araks, Brian Reyes and Karen Walker used for their runway shows. (double-click on the photo for a larger view)

Araks chose #4 from the Spring 2009 collection, and you're also able to see the 5 nail colors used to create the shade.

Brian Reyes chose #5 from the Summer 2009 collection, and you're able to see the 3 nail colors used to create the shade.

The product of choice to ensure a perfect runway set was Speedey, which is a fast-setting top coat. Stickey, a base coat designed to anchor the nail color, was applied first- followed by two coats of nail color and finished with Speedey.

So there you have it, a behind-the-scenes look at the Creative Nail Design Studio at Fashion Week and I loved it. It's the little things in life that bring so much joy! I can't wait for #6 from the Spring 2009 collection to be released- it was my favorite!

it's really amazing to see the different colors that they blend together to come up w/ the perfect color to use on the runway... also very interesting to learn that some designers use other designer's previous adds and/or collections to come up w/ inspiration for their own nail color ;) wow.. and they actually polish the nails the day of the show... Speedey must be wonderfly quick ;)
