Rihanna took to the stage four times at the MTV VMAs, and had a striking outfit to match each performance. Throughout the evening, the Barbadian beauty quick-changed from a baby-pink Hood by Air ensemble to a fluffy pink bra, then traded in towering Manolo Blahnik boots for a billowing Alexandre Vauthier gown. (Whew!) But through it all, her manicure remained constant.
So, what shade coordinates with fuzzy bras and ball gowns alike? Red Carpet Manicure, the first at-home, LED, gel-manicure service, collaborated with artist Kimmie Kyees to paint the singer's nails. “We wanted to find a color that would match any outfit and makeup changes she may have throughout the show," Kimmie explained via Instagram. "So, we chose a beautiful mauve color with a subtle shimmer that looks gorgeous against her skin tone.” Below, pick up Rihanna's exact "Hopeless Romantic" hue, and a few more universally flattering shades, for the next time you need a multi-tasking mani.
