These refined, minimalist-chic shades — once only available at our flagship Melrose Place store — are here to make all of your at-home manicure dreams a reality.

Within the confines of quarantine and social distancing, we’ve all been asked to make some tough grooming decisions. While the intimate act of cutting one’s hair seems virtually impossible, DIYing a fresh manicure is completely manageable — with the right skills (see our no-fail guide, here) and accoutrements of course.
When it comes to hue, less is more for more reasons than we can count. It’s harder to mess up skin tone-flattering neutrals like a pearly nude, a luxuriously-creamy beige, or a warm brick. A bonus: They lend a more glamorous, cool-girl approach in our humble opinion. For the ultimate choice, look no further than J.Hannah, an impossibly chic brand rooted in refined and nuanced jewelry that has extended their range to include ornaments for your tips. Their curated line of chip-resistant nail polish is an example of a mid-century modern-esque palette of nudes flattering on all skin tones crafted, as J.Hannah puts it, to allure the “color-resistant” set. This being a forward-thinking sort of line, the formulas are cruelty-free and non-toxic, too.
Up until now, these best-selling polishes were only offered in person at our Melrose boutique, but given the need for nail care at home, we have added them to our online curation for the sake of everyone’s enjoyment. Without a doubt, these polishes are so perfect, you’re going to want to get your hands on them ASAP.
“A beautiful polish line that seems to resist chips at every turn. The best part? You don’t have to apply a ton of coats to get a smooth, even finish.” —Lori Young, Makeup Artist
“All the colors are so elevated and chic. And I love how durable the formula is!” —Ashley Cornett, Makeup Artist
“Just like I have a curated collection of perfect white T-shirts, I keep J.Hannah’s nudes as my staple nail wardrobe.” —Lena Raff, Makeup Artist
As with every product on VIOLET GREY, the J.Hannah Nailpolish reached our shelves once a minimum of 70 percent of testers deemed it a winner. At that time, we added it to our makeup edit with the Violet Code’s official seal of approval.
