It's the nail polish that launched a thousand manicures! First Lady Michelle Obama caught everyone's attention at the Democratic National Convention with her light slate nails, and an amazing speech to boot. We picked our favorite options for recreating the look, but yesterday, the White House confirmed that Artistic Nail Design's Vogue was the official shade. (Sidenote: We love that the White House officially speaks on these matters.) We thought it was the perfect accent to her Tracy Reese dress, and the designer agrees. "We think about nails all the time! In fact, we develop exclusive shades for our shows every season," Reese said on The Today Show. "It's become the new accessory, and it's something everyone can access." The cement hue is a soak-off gel lacquer that hardens to a glossy finish when cured under an LED light. Plus, it's priced at only $16! Head over to to find a retailer near you.
