50 Shades of Nude

Okay, so not 50, but at least some of my favorite shades of nude nail polish. I crave occasional bright reds in summer and deep berry shades in winter, but nothing satisfies my nail polish fancy like a soft shade of nude any time of the year. It’s clean, classic and versatile. And don’t be fooled, nude shades are anything but boring – there’s something for every taste, from bold to demure. A few of my favorites are below:

Sugar Daddy by Essie
My latest discovery, this sheer pink gives nails a healthy, rosy sheen.

Ballet Slippers by Essie
A classic, a favorite of Giada de Laurentiis, brides the world over, moms-to-be. This pink/white suits every skin tone and every occasion.

Doe My Dear by Smith & Cult
The most perfect nude-grey. An edgier shade of nude.

Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Fluorescent Beige by Marc Jacobs
An iridescent soft pink perfect for weddings, date nights, the office or vacations. Sort of sparkly and very fun.

Toasted Sugar by Tom Ford
Just what you would expect toasted sugar to look like. A warm, sweet nude that you might actually want to eat.

Minimalistic by Essie
A cool-toned pink/nude that’s perfect for Spring and Summer.

Bubble Bath by OPI
Another classic sheer nude, OPI’s Bubble Bath is a perfect shade of soft pink.

Feathers & Flesh by Smith & Cult
A warm, darker nude for fall, but good year-round. Out of stock and for a reason.
