One nail polish colour that just works all year round is nude. Whether you’re going for a milky nude or a brown nude a good fleshy nude seems to suit all occasions whether you’re going for a job interview or out for cocktails with the girls. There is a nude shade out there for everyone and once you’ve found it, it is so easy to wear.
My current favourite is Bear Nude from the Collection Work The Colour nail polish line.
Bear Nude is perhaps the most perfect nude shade for my natural skin tone because it appears to have a slight pink tinge to it which is great when you have cool tones in your skin like I do. This is a nude that airs more on the brown side of nude polish and wearing a nude in a shade like this gives me that classy, effortlessly chic nail look without making my hands look like a mannequin. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against the mannequin nail look, I’ve even been known to rock it my self on occasions however there is something about a stand out nude that really looks stunning.
Bear Nude is fabulous quality and opaque in two coats. The formula is perfect in that it applies pretty evenly the first time around, perfect by the second coat and it dries quickly in between. The brush is a good size in that it is wide enough to coat my large nail plates in a few strokes- one down the centre and one either side. This polish doesn’t chip too easily; I usually get around four days out of it before I can see some general wear and tear on my nails but that’s when I’m looking up close- the great thing about nude polish is that it is harder to see the chips in it unless you’re really looking, so if you don’t have time to redo your polish one day, don’t worry as most people wont be able to see.
The great thing about the Collection Work The Colour nail polishes is that there is such a wide shade range and they’re all available for only £1.99 each from Boots, making them super affordable. I can’t believe the quality of the polishes for the price.
