Nudie Nails Nailed: Find Yours

I LOVE nail polish. Saying it was an addiction would be an understatement. Since there are millions beyond millions of polishes to choose from I can get pretty overwhelmed. As I think everyone does. I started stalking cult beauty products about a year ago and have noticed that there are several perfect nude nail followings out there. I’ve tried them all and think it really comes down to a matter of preference.

           

So here’s some info to help you NAIL YOUR BEST NUDE NAIL:

THE MAGIC OF RGB’S NUDE NAIL SYSTEM

Mademoiselle & Ballet Slippers both have a very strong cult following.  Mademoiselle is extremely sheer so much that it really just enhances the light pink under your actual nails. Ballet Slippers is just one step more opaque which I prefer.

The Perfect French uses Ballet Slippers under the white and Mademoiselle over it.

Ladylike, Tusk, and Sand Tropez don’t blend into as much of a natural nail look but still neutral none the less.

Sand Tropez is for darker skin tones.

The best for me is Topless & Barefoot and Bubble Bath.

(For reference: light/medium olive skin, long nail beds)

Bubble Bath is a more universal tone than Topless & Barefoot and is more sheer which adds to its versatility. It also  has a lovely shine to it. (no shimmer)

SO LET’S MAKE THIS SIMPLE

Barely There Nail for Any Complexion: Essie, Mademoiselle

Natural Nail for a Pinker Complexion: Essie, Ballet Slippers

Nude Nail for Pinker Complexion: Essie, We Can Do It Pink

Natural Nail for an Olive Complexion: OPI, Bubble Bath

Nude Nail for an Olive Complexion: Essie, Topless & Barefoot

Natural Nail for a Dark Complexion: Essie, Topless & Barefoot

Nude Nail for a Dark Complexion: Essie, Sand Tropez

*Remember you don’t have to do 2 coats of the same polish.

*Try to use 2 coats of polish all together though. Plus your base and top coat. It will make it smoother, stronger, and last longer.
