On a late Friday afternoon in February, Nadia and Rajeeb Samdani—the mega art-collecting couple based in Dhaka, Bangladesh—had just placed their Haegue Yang commission, a tall, almost Seussian-looking sculpture titled North of the Mountain, by a floor-to-ceiling window on the fifth floor of their six-story house in the capital’s fashionable Gulshan neighborhood. The Berlin-based artist’s joyful piece, which invites viewers to join the fun by giving it a gentle push, thereby ringing its hundreds of tiny gold-colored bells, is the newest jewel in their growing cutting-edge modern and contemporary collection, which totals around 2,000 artworks. “You can try it later,” Rajeeb promises with a broad smile.

The Samdanis situated the sound work next to a second piece with a musical theme: a copper, granite and coal sculpture of long tubes that lead to what looks like the flared bell of a trumpet

The $4 Nail Polish Harry Styles Wore in His “Watermelon Sugar” Video

Harry Styles has done it again, y’all. Aside from offering up endless sartorial inspiration in the form of printed sweaters, grunge flannels, and frilly blouses, the English singer is also known to take unexpected beauty risks. Specifically, he loves to rock a bold manicure featuring fashionable elements like bright hues and even stylish designs. Simply put, the man is nail goals.

This week marks the release of the music video to accompany Styles’ hit single “Watermelon Sugar,” and the summertime vibe of the flick has left us all craving the beach—and a bite of seasonal fruit. In the video, Styles partakes in a surprisingly titillating watermelon feast while being fawned over by about a dozen models, but the thing that stuck out most? His nail polish, of course! The perfect shade of neon coral popped from the first frames of the video and kept capturing our attention for

Harry Styles “Watermelon Sugar” Music Video Is Everything We Want

  • Today, Harry Styles dropped the music video for “Watermelon Sugar,” one of his hit singles on his sophomore album, Fine Line.
  • The video, which has the singer eating copious amounts of fruit among a crowd of bikini-clad girls, is dedicated to “touching.”

    There’s only so much I can say about Harry Styles in his newly released music video for “Watermelon Sugar,” fresh off his sophomore album, Fine Line, before this piece starts veering off into NSFW discourse.

    The music video, which dropped today, bursts at the seams with sexual innuendo: the dedication (romantically addressed to the art of “touching”), the swarm of writhing bodies in sun-dipped bikinis, Styles’s teensy-tiny knit sweater vests. Nothing, however, gets the layman viewer going more than watching the singer’s baby-pink-painted fingernails caressing the edge of a watermelon slice.

    In other words, think Mamma Mia! but sexier—and with less Colin Firth.

    Harry Styles Wore a Pink Manicure in His “Watermelon Sugar” Music Video

    While our summer may look a little different compared to past warm-weather seasons due to the novel coronavirus, Harry Styles would like to take you to a hot-day paradise in his latest music video, “Watermelon Sugar,” which features the singer frolicking on a beach eating watermelon, surrounded by friends, touching and interacting with them. (Seems like a dream, doesn’t it?) As beauty editors, however, what caught our eye more than the summery, perfect day in the video is Styles’ summery, perfect manicure.

    There has always been a ridiculous stigma surrounding men wearing nail polish. However, that has never phased Styles at all since he wears polish so often, most recently the bubblegum-pink, matte shade in his new video. The hue just screams summer, and whether this year’s warmest months are spent social-distancing near the water or in a Zoom party, there’s always an excuse
