Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel Mannequin Hands

Although we're not exactly dedicated catwalk-watchers at Beauty Bible, we couldn't help noticing that the shows were dominated by neutral, nude nails. These have become the sort of 'Little Black Dress' of nail looks - probably because they go with anything, and make hands look elegant and groomed.  There's a nude for everyone - Sarah suits putty shades (so Mocha is perfect), Jo needs a pinky tone (Natural Pink or Rose Beige) - and this collection has something for every skinton.  (We suggest buying in-store, if possible, and holding the bottle against your hands to see which is most flattering.  Some will make your hands look healthy, others - well, a bit 'dead', actually.)

The gel-like formula is incredibly long-lasting - up to 11 days, Revlon promise, and though we haven't got quite that length of wear out of them, the durability's impressive.

One quick cheat, for sure, if you want to show your finger's on make-up fashion's pulse.
