Mannequin Hands with CND Putty

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 checking out my pal Amber’s Mannequin Hands.  In my best Amber speak… if you’re not involved in Amber’s blog, Beauty Blogging Junkie, I don’t WHAT you’re doing with your time.  Amber doesn’t speak MAC because she’s a NARS girl.  NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji to be exact.  This is what Amber has to say about her polish pick, CND putty,

“I have been looking for MONTHS for my exact flesh tone lacquer and kept overestimating my Cullen levels of pallor. I mentioned that I could NOT for the life of me find a match when my boss (Rachel Hayes at Daily Makeover) plucked this CND bottle off her desk and goes, this one’s your exact match. And she was 100% right. It looks like an extension of my fingertips. I love that elongates my fingers with a little extra glossiness. And CND polishes always last a week for me, if I pair it with my favorite Priti topcoat.”

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 Kelsey S. is showing off her “mannequin hands” using Sinful Colors Satin.  Kelsey is a Bare Minerals Medium Beige/MAC NC35 and this is what she has to say about the color,

“This was a hand-me-down polish from a friend who had much darker skin and didn’t like the the way it looked on her. I found that it matched my skin tone pretty much perfectly and I love it! Having so many colors, this is always my go-to polish when I can’t make a decision on what color I feel like using. The formula goes on quite smoothly, and I never really have had any problems with Sinful Colors polish. It also has microscopic silver sparkles in it that you can’t really see unless you have a magnifying glass, that add to the luminosity of the polish.”

“I’m not generally a fan of nudes, but in a pinch, when I don’t have time for a meticulous paint job, I’ll throw this on rather than go without.”
