Th­ese are not your tra­di­tional man­nequin hands. “It’s not go­ing to match any­one’s skin tone,” says Rita Re­mark, Essie global lead ed­u­ca­tor and lead nail artist, of the in­dus­trial-look­ing matte mani at Alexan­der Wang. “I didn’t want it to look hy­per-fem­i­nine or hy­per­mas­cu­line. It’s kind of like a blank foun­da­tion.” Re­mark lay­ered a pink shade over a true-nude hue to achieve a warmer colour, but if you don’t have the pa­tience (or the time) for that, try Essie Sugar Daddy Nail Pol­ish on its own. “It kind of looks like lip­gloss on your nails,” she says. “It’s re­ally clean and jelly-like.” PROD­UCT Ap­ply Essie Nail Pol­ish in Sand Tropez ($10), al­low it to dry a bit and then layer on a coat of Sugar Daddy ($10).
