Beauty Lounge’s Ji Baek usually looks to fashion for nail color inspiration, but this fall’s shades are more political and personal. Her feelings about the world climate are expressed in the khaki green No More War and the creamy burgundy Bruised, while her hopes for the future are pinned to the calming, deep Teal. Plie is the color of ballet shoes and a sweet nod to Baek’s favorite form of exercise. $18 each; rescuebeauty.com.
