PARIS, France – ‘The hand is the epitome of care. It is our partner, our eye, our identity. It is both powerful and delicate. The hand makes, creates, gives life. It is also symbolic of our relationship with others’, shares Hermes’ artistic director, Pierre – Alexis Dumas, on the inspiration behind the house’s new collection of nail polishes and hand care items: Les Mains Hermes.

‘We are the house of hands. The hand is a supremely civilising influence that transforms us and connects us to each other’, says Dumas.

Featuring a set of nail files, a complete hand care cream, nourishing oil for cuticles and nails, protective base and top coats alongside a veritable rainbow of nail enamels, Les Mains Hermes comes as a follow up to the successful lipstick and blush collections, known as Rouge Hermes and Rose Hermes, respectively.

Zooming in on what we’re most excited about: Hermes’ nail enamel, which comes in 24 shades is inspiring by the colours, nuances, intensity, and radiance of enamel. Twenty – four of cours, takes after the emblematic 24 Faubourg Saint – Honore, Hermes’ address in Paris since 1880. With a formula composed of 71 per cent of ingredients of natural origin, these pops of pure colour nails to life.
