Exclusively for The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, Brooklyn-based Cirque Colors has created this special nail lacquer collection for The Met in collaboration with retail innovator Olivia Kim. The chic colors are inspired by materials and techniques in the exhibition as well as the theme of "hand and machine." Includes one bottle each of Tulle, Laser Jet, and Ultrasonic nail lacquer.

Tulle is a light pink-beige crme inspired by the dichotomy of precision and lightness embodied in handmade accents from the various haute couture mtiers, including dentellerie (lacemaking), parurier floral (artificial flowers), plissage (pleating), and plumasserie (featherwork).

Laser Jet is a sparkling black holographic glitter topper that can be used alone for opaque coverage or layered for a shimmering effect. This high-tech lacquer is inspired by the machine-like perfection achieved in hand-beading and embellishment of both couture and prt--porter garments.

Ultrasonic is a sheer linen-whiteinspired by the designer toiles that serve as working prototypes for finished fashion designs. This foundational shade pays homage to the creative process, providing buildable coverage and a perfect blank canvas for nail art.

Found only at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

EDIT FROM OLIVIA KIM: "Developed exclusively for The Met Store, the colors of each set are inspired by many pieces on view in the exhibition and with fun names like Pret-a-Pearl, Moon Dust, and Ultrasonic. Mix and match them across all of your fingers!"
