The Natural Selection

If you’ve outgrown baroque nail art — or never went for it in the first place — here’s a nail polish that might appeal to you. Dior Nail Glow is billed as a translucent “enhancer” that gives your nails a discreet shine while bringing out their natural color. Pinks become pinker, the tips of the nails turn brighter, and the result is something like an instant French manicure minus the artifice. With so much going on in this field, from glitter to glow-in-the-dark enamel, it’s a relief to find a polish whose only gimmick is that it doesn’t look gimmicky. And applying it couldn’t be easier: You simply paint a single layer directly onto the nail — no prepping necessary. In a world of flash, Nail Glow offers a subtle and decidedly grown-up alternative. —Lola Ehrlich and John Birmingham
