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 pinkand 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?
