Put Some ‘Wu’ In Your Nails

The JASON WU Collection by CND

Jason Wu’s highly anticipated limited edition nail polish collection for CND is finally available for pre-order. Since the announcement last fall, just like you, I too have been waiting for its launch with baited breath. Created to compliment his Spring 2011 Collection, Wu talked about his very first collaboration of a nail polish collection during  New York Fashion Week,  “[e]very 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.”

Selected looks from Jason Wu Spring 2011 Collection

The colors; Brigitte, a lovely rose, Sophia, a beautiful dark mushroom (also my favorite), Veronica, a “sexy, beet red” with blue undertones and of course Miss Wu, a pretty limestone gray, the designer’s signature color, can all be yours very soon (all orders will ship on May 1). The limited edition set, priced at an incredibly affordable $47, also contains the much hyped about top coat, named Anna, that contains silk fragments to give a tweed-like finish to your nails. I’m not entirely convinced that I would like this effect, particularly on my manicure, but I most definitely want to try it. The spring is the best time to experiment and play around with nail color so don’t wait too long to get your own set. Plus, if you hurry you might be one of the lucky ones to get a top or base coat for free. With dark and light colors, this set is great for all skin tones. I for one can’t wait for mine to arrive. How about you?
