Nude nails

I've always been the type of person who wouldn't be caught dead wearing a light colour on my nails. For me it's always been about the blacks reds and purples, but recently I took a leap of faith as I really wanted to try something different but without going for colour because as I've told you before I really don't do much colour. With that in mind I picked up a few nice pale nude shades and I have to say I'm really enjoying a nude nail.

My favourite out of these three is Grey Suede by Reckon which is a gorgeous subtle pink cream with a tiny amount of shimmer. I not only love this one for the colour but also for the longevity of the product, as you can guarantee It'll stick around for a good 5 days.

Another shade I love is Lychee by Barry M which seems to be one every blogger and YouTube have. I think this is because it's a pure cream nude colour that also gives a lovely gel effect when it's dried. Which I really like as it makes this really subtle colour a little more noticeable. But I have to say for my kin tone I don't think this is the best, I think it would look better on a fairer skin tone.

I also wanted to pick up a lilacy nude so I also got the Models Own Midsummer Mauve which is absolutely gorgeous. Its a really pretty lilacy beige grey colour. It's super subtle and has a really pretty shiny finish.

So if you see light coloured nails as a pretty girly thing you should definitely try out some nude shades. They look so chic and simple while still standing out really well to make a statement. The best thing of all is that as the colours are so muted and nude that you can barely tell when the colour starts to chip.

  1. I absolutely adore nude nails, so classy and chic. I've tried the Barry M one and wasn't much of a fan, but the Models Own one looks like a lovely colour, I much prefer a browner toned nude like that :)
