Nude Nails for Winter

Hey Beauties!

I tend to be a creature of habit, once I find something I really love – like a particular nail polish – I will wear it over and over again until I just can’t bear to see it one more time. For the past three or four years I have been stuck in a rut of wearing only red nail polish for the majority of the winter. For some reason, I associate red with colder weather and as a result I have a million and one shades of red and I was getting a bit bored. This year I decided to change it up a little bit and I have experimented with plenty of colours and finishes but the one shade I have really enjoyed wearing is nude!

Nude nails are so incredibly versatile because you can stick with a simple polish for a chic effortless look or add a fun accent nail for some interest. There are endless options for you to show off your creativity and they create a really great base for showcasing statement rings! I have collected quite a few but my three favourite polishes for a nude nail are:

Essie’s Urban Jungle – a light creamy nude with a hint of cool grey! 

Essie’s Comfy in Cashmere* – a gorgeous taupey mauve with subtle shimmer from the new Cashmere Matte collection.

Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in Porchester Square – a middle toned grey with a bit of purple in the base. 

What nail polishes have you been wearing this winter?

    I love nude coloured nails for work 🙂 I feel they look so smart and sleek. I am loving the Barry M nude at the moment (the name escapes me….) xxBrenda BusyBee

    I love Porchester Square! I haven't tried it in the gel version though.

    My favourite is Essie's Sand Tropez, but Porchester Square has been on my to-buy list for the longest time!

      I am so behind but I have never tried Sand Tropez! It's on my list!
