When it comes to nails, Anatole Rainey is a classicist. “It’s all about a lovely oval shape, with the perfect nude or red,” says the 35-year-old manicurist, who was recently tapped by Dior to be its first international nail designer. “But there’s always room for a metallic.” Rainey’s hire coincides with the relaunch of Dior Vernis polish collection, 24 supershiny shades featuring bold reds and chic neutrals, as well as this lovely rose gold Vibrato. “It’s an elegant, jewel-like alternative to a nude nail,” says Rainey of the hue. “And it quite holds its own against the real thing.”
