five mac endless night (limited edition from 2012)
over the years and after a lot of trial & error, I’ve figured out how to rock nude nail polish without looking like I have mannequin hands. because of my skin tone & undertone, I have to find a “nude” that has a little bit of pink in it so that it doesn’t look too pale on my nails, and the added pink keeps things from being too chalky.
- for the perfectly minimal nail, the dior nail glow is my jam.
- for a sheer, translucent nude, mac endless night is my go-to.
- for a solid nude, I switch between orly dare to bare, which leans a little more pink, and essie topless & barefoot, which is a true neutral nude on me (even if it looks very pink in the bottle, oddly enough).
- when I want something a little more subtle & chic without being sheer, nails inc. x vvb bamboo white is the perfect soft, pink-white.
what are your go-to nudes?
