Mannequin Hands with Rescue Beauty Lounge

snap-happy-mannequin-hands Mannequin Hands is a new series featuring ALU Fanatics showing off their “mannequin hands” shade.  The one polish that best gives that elongated, flesh-toned look to their hands.

Happy Friday Fanatics!  Today we have Snap Happy from MUA showing off her “mannequin hands” and she graced with three gorgeous photos of her faves.  Snap Happy is a MAC NC 35-40 so check out her swatches to see if you find a color match.

Snap Happy chose to share pics of Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge (a fave of mine) and Rescue Beauty Lounge Opaque Nude (which I just bought) and a multi-color shot of Borghese Almondine, OPI Let Them Eat Rice Cake, OPI  Tickle My France-y and Orly Country Club Khaki.  This is what she has to say about them,

“These are probably my favorite shades of nude. If I had to pick one, I would go with Rescue Beauty Lounge Grunge as my favorite shade. It’s what I wanted Orly Country Club Khaki to look on me but for some reason Country Club Khaki looked green on my skin tone.”




Grunge looks stunning but I’m really digging Tickle My France-y on Snap Happy. What about you? Anyone find their hand twin today? Aren’t Snap Happy’s pics fantastic? Thoughts?

Don’t forget, you have until January 15th to share your Mannequin Hands with the group. CLICK HERE for more details.

    Tickle-Me-Francy looks the best of them all–and a colour i’ve been debating buying for the mannequin hands look. decision made!!

  2. melli says:

    RBL Opaque Nude may be the best match for me. I don’t usually do nude colours, but if I decide to try the look, that would be one I would pick. Thanks Snap Happy and Michelle!

  3. kelliegonzo says:

    i think the almondine looks the best on her :) although the borghese brush is problematic to me, i will never buy another one of those! i’ve got my “mannequin” hands shots done, now i’ve just got to upload them and send them to you!

    Now I can’t make up my mind which one I like better, Grunge or Tickle My France-y, lol! Thanks for posting the pics, Michelle! I loved looking at everyone’s mannequin hands!

    I third “Tickle-my-Francy” as the mannequin hand match here. I tried one last night, but failed. I don’t own a lot of nudes (1 or 2?) as I’m more about color color and more color, but it’s been fun seeing these!

  6. Andrea says:

    Definately OPI Tickle My France-y creates the most dramatic mannequin hands look on Snap Happy. She has beautiful hands!

    I’m NC 35-40 and I was going to suggest Tickle My France-y for my absolute mannequin hand when I saw Snap Happy’s perfectly manicured hand rocking the color! :)) It looks so great on her. I honestly LOVE that color – the best nude that’s not-so-boringly-nude EVER!!! Great choice Michelle & Snap Happy!!

    When my hands aren’t red, I think I’d be Almondine. When my hands are red, I’d be Heli Yum by China Glaze. (Just kidding…sort of)

  9. Nicole says:

    I would say either the Borghese Almondine or Tickle My France-y would be the matches here. Though I do like the look of Grunge!

    Honestly, I think that the

    I’m with Kelsey. I’m not a fan of mannequin hands. I do like the idea of a nude polish color on hands that have a slight contrast so as to avoid that corpse look. I have TMF, but it’s looks darker on me because have light-colored hands.
    If Snap Happy wants that waxen doll look, I agree that TMF works well on her.

    I have and love Grunge and I think it looks great on her, but you’re right…Tickle My France-y looks amazing. I love that one on myself. Let Them Eat Rice Cake is another one of my favorites. I had to search for that one for a while ;)

  13. Misty says:

    I love RBL Grunge. It may not be a “mannequin” look for me but I want it anyway LOL

  14. KittytoKaren says:

    that’s what I wish Tickle My France-Y looked like on me!! I just recently tried it but had to remove it fast because it looked like an awesome nude indoors, then outdoors it morphed into this horrendous pinky-mauve-grandma thing that made me physically ill to look at it. :( I was soooo sad! I was counting on it to be “the one”!!

    I hate the formulation of Let Them Eat Rice Cake. Somehow it goes mat and uneven on my nails. And Tickle My France-Y is one of my favourites ever. But it looks much-much darker on my hands. Sometimes almost mauve-lavander. I tried to go for Essie Body Languadge, but lately found a greater substitute for it – MAC Light Affair. SO be it.

  16. Barbara says:

    I happen to be wearing Tickle My France-y right now and I can’t get over how beautiful it is. I also own OPI’s Samoan Sand but somehow its yellowish undertones clash with my skin tone. Tickle My France-Y, however, is a cool-toned nude with a definite pink cast and it is perfect for me.

  17. Katy M says:

    I just bought Almondine this weekend! I’m an NC15 and it’s definately my mannequin hand! I’ll submit later this week! I’m loving this installment! :)

  18. Lo says:

    Definitely Tickle My France-y works the best! It just blends right into her skin!! I need to find my mannequin hands shade for NC45 skin! ^_^ Any suggestions?

  19. Karen says:

    I’m in love with the RBL “Opaque Nude!” I think it is just the most perfect creamy nude color I’ve seen yet, and it looks wonderful on you! I just bought the OPI “Tickle My France-y” and I can’t wait to try that one out. I love it on you. Hope it looks that good on me…lol.
