  • Nude Nails

    As much we love a statement, sometimes less is more. And this is especially true when it comes to nails, where nude shades have always been an easy way to look polished. The only caveat: get the colour just right. Perhaps one of our most common beauty-focused DMs is on this exact topic. It’s just so easy to get all Goldilocks about it: this one’s too yellow, another is too milky or pink. So here you have it. Our definitive guide to the perfect nude to swipe on your nails.

    X Côte Nail Polish in G10£14

    I’m very aware of clean beauty products at the moment and I’m keen to try as many as I can. This creamy, pinkish nude caught my eye and it’s ’10-Free’ (no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, fragrances, phthalates or animal ingredients), meaning it’s vegan and non-toxic. I love the pretty pink shade and found it to be quite long-lasting and very flattering. I’ll wear it in the spring.

    Vinylux Nail Polish in Lavishly Loved£10.99

    My nails can’t handle gel manicures, so this is the most hard-wearing polish formula I’ve found. It’s slightly heavier than a regular polish and has a lovely glossy finish, but the shade is what I absolutely love. For me, this perfect ever-so-milky beige is the final word on a perfectly nude nail. Whenever I wear it I get asked about the shade – it’s that good.

    Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in Bleached Mauve£22

    I’ve been told by manicurists that because I have pink undertones in my skin, if I wear polish with too much yellow (like Laura’s favourite beige) it makes my hands look washed-out. This rosy beige is my ideal match; it’s like the perfect non-colour colour. I prefer my nails to be a little longer when I wear it though, as I sometimes think it’s so subtle my nails almost disappear.

    Breathable Luxury Nail Polish in Au Natural£14.50

    When you want your nails to pop a little, this is a lovely bright nude that is ever-so-slightly pink. It’s glossy and, compared to the more classic shades I usually choose, felt fresh and modern. I think it would look fab on medium-to-dark skin tones or in summer when my paler skin is a little sun-kissed.
