Can't afford to get that Jason Wu dress??? Don't worry , you can now sport a Jason Wu manicure. Today marks the announcement of the Jason Wu Collection. Fashion designer Jason Wu will be collaborating with runway manicure leader CND to introduce a limited edition Collection that honors iconic women through wearable, timeless shades. The set will come with 4 Colours and 1 Effect that can be layered to achieve the designer's effortless yet elegant nail styles. If you are familiar with the fabulous work the CND team has created for past shows with amazing details (glass, pearls, matte vs. foil, etc..) , its only right that this set would include one effect. This also sets this set apart from other nail sets in the past- none has given this option ( a new trend in sets perhaps???)
"Every season I play with different ways of using color in my collection, so it was a natural choice to collaborate with CND on a capsule of nail colors that reflects my aesthetics. Included in the set is my signature gray color," says Jason Wu.
The Collection ( which provides rich coverage for everyday use) includes:
- Miss Wu - Jason's signature limestone, warm gray that dries matte with a subtle chrome sheen, in perfect harmony of masculinity and femininity
- Brigitte - voluptuous warm pink that perfectly channels the 50's screen siren
- Sophia - gorgeous mushroom taupe
- Veronica - highlights the evolution of decadence with a blue-based, oxblood red
- Anna Effect - layered over any of the four shades , provides a tweed finish via microscopic fibrous pieces that create cool, subtle texture.
Jason Wu and CND have joined forces on the runway for the past eight seasons. This color collection is Jason Wu's first foray into nail products, and CND's first designer product partnership. The full collection will be introduced at Jason Wu's Spring 2011 runway show later on today where the audience members will receive a complimentary set - lucky guests!. The Jason Wu Collection ($47/Suggested retail price) will be available for purchase in salons via CND.com in May 2011.
