The cast of ABC's hit show Ugly Betty enjoyed some off-screen pampering thanks to CND (formerly Creative Nail Design). Tiffany Grecco, an ambassador for the fashion-forward nail company, traveled to the set to add a little panache to the actors' fingers and toes. The star of the show, America Ferrera, received a refreshing SpaManicure and warming Raw Earth Pedicure. She chose Glow, an ethereal gold shimmer, for her fingers and Burn, a bright hibiscus red, for her toes. Ana Ortiz, who plays Betty's image-obsessed sister, got her own beauty boost with a custom-blended French manicure. Other cast members, including Christopher Gorham, Michael Urie and Becki Newton, also indulged in CND's offerings.
