Nail polish collabs are dead. Long live nail polish collabs!
New York's ubertrendy Ace Hotel, which has outposts in Portland, Seattle, and Palm Springs, has partnered with indie beauty brand Uslu Airlines to create a custom nail polish color. The gunmetal gray hue was inspired by the interior of the hotel's rooms. There's also a custom nail file so that you can get closer to the full-on manicure experience.
Good news, though: this polish isn't like pillow mints, and you don't have to stay at the hotel to snag a bottle. The polish/file set is available on the Ace Hotel's website. Unfortunately, that means you're less likely to spot Karen Elson in the lobby.
