Trends may come and trends may go, but classics stay on forever. For nail trends, we've told you about the tie and dye one everyone has been loving or the fruit nail art that has been all over Instagram but if you want to take a break from all that, might we suggest going back to the basics? Nude nail paints (like nude lipsticks) can truly work for any occasion and with any outfit. There's something so chic and timeless about this manicure that we couldn't help but remind you why we love it so much.
However, not any nude is going to suit you. So, out of the plethora of nail paints available in the market, we've picked our favs that look flattering on every skin tone.
This shade by MyGlamm is a really pretty nude with a slightly pinkish peach tinge that will go well with warm Indian skin tones. This is one of those must-have shades which you can just apply when you don't want to put a bright shade but still want to look put-together.
If you love getting gel manicures done but can't go to the salon right now, this nude nail polish is great. Apply two coats for a high-shine and opaque finish and finish it off with a top coat, your nails will look fab!
This nail polish by Sephora is the kind of shade that will go well on all skin tones- from fair and medium to duskier complexions can all rock this equally well. It dries really fast and has medium shine so for people who don't want it to look too out there, this is the one you need to add to your cart.
O.P.I is one of the best brands for nail paints and hence this nail lacquer had to be included in the list. It's pigmented, isn't streaky, and applies really well so if you are willing to put in a few extra bucks, then this should be your ideal choice.
This one is not only a nail paint but is also a treatment that strengthens and glosses over the nails. It's long-lasting and doesn't chip easily but it does take a while to dry completely. So if you have the patience to wait, this Sally Hansen nail paint is superb.
This brand's nail paints are so many people's holy grail and the reason for that is a perfect consistency. This shade is a blend of cream and beige with the slightest touch of baby pink, making it truly flattering on all skin tones. You'll see many Instagram nail art pages, posing with this colour and there's a reason for that!
This nail paint has a glossy finish and is great for daily wear. The price point is affordable so if you're on a budget or are still a student, you might be interested in this one. It's got some pinkish undertones and requires two coats to look opaque.
For people with deeper skin tones, we suggest either going one shade lighter or one shade darker when picking a nude nail polish so that it doesn't just disappear on your hand. This is a great chocolate brown colour if you prefer it over a pinkish-nude.
So, how are you nailing it today?!
