Will You Go Bare This Spring?
If you’re not up for the rainbow nail colours of the catwalk like raspberry pink or creamsicle orange, there is a subtler choice that’s making waves this spring.
Nude nails are confident and classic, and provide a new take on complementing a daytime or casual look.
Wearing this easy-to-wear nail colour also gives you extra time with less maintenance than attention‑seeking nail shades (inevitable chipping is less noticeable).
Some tips for wearing flesh-toned nail polish include choosing a shade that matches your skin tone. If you have fair skin, try an opalescent colour. Medium and darker skin tones suit neutral nail hues with more pink or copper.
If you’re going monochromatic, you’ll also want to nix those long, pointy nails and go for short and square.
Go bare with these hot shades:
- Deborah Lippmann in Naked is hot for spring. it’s a clean bare beige with a sheer finish.
- Sephora by OPI in 08 Nude Shot is designed for those of us who love a natural, in the buff look.
- Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in Safari Beige 219 is a trend-defining nude in a delicate beige that will take you right into the summer.
Barely there nail shades are perfect for shy types (count me in) with colour that’s so subtle, it’s almost like not wearing polish at all.
