Nude nails were all over the catwalk for Spring/Summer 2013 and I could not be happier. Some people think that nudes are incredibly boring but I think they can look really classy. I tend to receive more compliments for my nude nails than any other colours so I am glad that I am actually now on trend when wearing some of my favourite shades. I am also glad that I can wear an on-trend colour to work; it can be real dull having to wear either pink or red every day. Let's take a look at what nudes I have in my collection...
This Topshop shade is actually more of a stone I suppose but it works with my pasty skin. 'Threadbare' is one of my favourite shades. It goes with just about any outfit and looks more expensive than it is.
I always get complimented when I wear this shade. It is probably a truer match to my skin than any of the others and I absolutely adore it. In fact, I like it so much I have two! (This actually happened by accident but still, I love it a lot).
Nails inc. polishes apply really well and last a long time but they are a little pricier than other brands I use. This polish came in a set that I was given by a friend and is a bit of a darker nude so will work well for those of you who aren't quite as pasty as I am.
This is the only GOSH nail polish that I own and I have to admit that I very rarely wear it. It has a more orange tone than most nudes - great for all you Essex lot (joke!) - but I like it because it is a bit different from your everyday nude.
This is a recent purchase of mine but is becoming a real fave. It is paler than my skin so doesn't quite work as a true nude but it still looks sophisticated and works with my wardrobe. I love Barry M polishes but was actually a little disappointed with the Gelly range as they chip quite quickly.
Other than H&M's 'Nerd' this is my favourite nude shade in the collection. Again, I always get complimented when wearing this colour. I seem to get the best feedback from nudes that match my skin tone so I would highly recommend trying to match your colouring. I know that Revlon and Butter London are bringing out completely nude ranges to suit a whole load of skin tones so, if you have a tone that is not usually catered for, keep your eyes peeled.
I will probably be wearing nude nails for the majority of Spring so it's nice to have a few to choose from.
