Jan Arnold, the co-founder and creative director of CND took her inspiration for the “leather like” nails from Malandrino’s theme of Mongolian Nomad. Called the “ bark mani” the CND team created the look with 1 coat of Deep Ruby, 1 coat of Copper Shimmer, 1 coat Super Matte Topcoat.

The look was completed by pressing a special pad on top of the nail polish to create a textured leather effect. Nails were clipped to a shorter shape. For Fall 2010, Jan foresees “a bolder, stronger, tailored shape inspired by all of the menswear looks on the runway.”

A “tree” shape was the look for the hair at Malandrino. Odile Gilbert for Phyto aimed for an organic look inspired by Mongolia and Africa. Using Phyto Professional Fiber Paste and Phyto Pro Mousse Volume Spray, the Phyto team used their hands to create the unique “tree” shape.
