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 Lipglossiping has shared her mannequin hands with us using a Swiss brand, Mavala.  I’m not overly familiar with Mavala’s colors though I’ve received some of their treatments in swap packages before.  Lipglossiping chose Liberty as her perfect flesh-toned shade. She describes her skin tone as MAC NW15 saying, it “is a bit orange on me, but pale enough.”

Where are Lipglossiping’s hand twins? Have you tried Mavala’s nail polish before? Since their US site only has product info about the treatments, do any of you have a good US based resource for their nail polish?

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).

It’s week two of the Mannequin Hands series and today we have Aina from Lacquerholic showing off her manicure.  Aina is a MAC NC 43-45 and she chose Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Uber for her mannequin hands look.  This is what she has to say about it,

“I really like this shade because even in this day and age, it’s hard to find a good nude that doesn’t look too pale on darker skin. I have so many failed attempts to find a great nude polish, but I think Uber is just about perfect for me!”

Even though it’s not my mannequin hands shade, I’m diggin’ Uber.  What say you?  Have you found a hand twin in Aina?
