Mannequin Hands with Sally Hansen Café Au Lait

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.

Today we’re taking a look at KarenD‘s mannequin hands. She used three coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 220 Café Au Lait since she’s, “still learning to work with that funky wide brush.”  She also showed it mattified with China Glaze Matte Magic (below). Karen is primarily a drugstore woman using Revlon Colorstay Ivory foundation and has shared some additional images on MUA (click here).


If you found your color match in KarenD, let us know. Have you tried the new Sally Hansen line? What do you think of the brush?

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

    Does anyone have MAC translation to Bare Minerals FairlyLight? Right now I’m wearing SH salon Naked Ambition. but would like to try some of the others. Just don’t know which would be right.

  3. Ooo I actually like this one! Not an exact match for me, but I might go buy it!

    Ivory foundation might mean I’ve found a hand twin! Based on the photos I think I lean a little more yellow than KarenD’s healthy pink but I’ll have to keep this shade in mind.
    The matte top makes this color look perfect with her skin!

    Tried this color after all – perfect match! Thanks KarenD. Guess I have a pretty good idea what is the drugstore BM match.

    I agree with Never Enough Nails and SalvagedExpression above. I like this one.

    I jus bought this yesterday & it’s a match for me too. Love it. I put a clear holographic top coat on for a little dash – very subtle. I haven’t been able to find a matte top coat locally but am going to try requesting it at sally beauty supply.

    I forgot to mention I really like the wider brush for manicures – 1 swipe for pinky, 2 swipes for other fingers & 3 for the thumbnail. It can be tricky for a pedi, thought, if your toenails are small.
