Nude Nails: Create the Perfect ‘Bare’ Mani
The new nude nails are not your grandmother’s polish. Like the “no-makeup” makeup look, the latest nail trend is anything but boring. Here’s how to pull off the look.
Today’s nude nail is modern, clean, and sophisticated. The bare look only better. Rather than dowdy, pasty hues that sap life from your digits, these nudes are spicy, turned up, and in no way hum drum.
If you are over tips and trinkets, the “no-mani” mani is for you. The look is not only chic and super versatile, it can actually make short fingers appear longer and is easy to maintain.
As with nude lipstick, the key to fending off a less than vibrant look when donning nude polish lies in choosing the right color for your skin tone. Or in this case, your nail bed. This is essential, no skimping. Luckily, we have an assortment to choose from with tips on how to pick. Of course, all are free from the most toxic nail polish ingredients.
Choosing the Perfect Polish for Your Nude Nails
When selecting the perfect nude shade for your nails, start by taking a look at your nail bed. If yours is pink, go with cooler grey nudes. If yours are more on the beige side, stick with warmer tan tones.
Start with clean, filed nails. Trim cuticles and treat to a massage using Vapour Organic Beauty Replenish Organic Nail and Cuticle Oil. Apply a base coat, like Priti 5-free Nail 2 in 1 Base and Top Coat, and get to polishing.
Kure Bazaar Nail Lacquer Essenziale is a cool nude on the blush side.
Kure Bazaar Nail Lacquer Corso 22 is beige with a hint of pink.
Treat Collection Delicious is a cool greige with lavender tones.
Kure Bazaar Nail Lacquer Cappuccino is a creamy warm tone.
Treat Collection Touch of Glamour is a glossy mink.
Tenoverten Spruce is a woodsy khaki.
Apply top coat and there you have your new nude nails. Perfect for fall.
