For nail addicts who simply aren’t ready to swap their neutral tips for glittery nail art and dramatic talons in rich shades of red, nude nail polish is a simple and sweet solution. Whether you have a delicate porcelain complexion or gorgeous ebony skin, the perfect shade of understated nail lacquer can help you polish off your minimalist beauty statement this season. Here are the best nude nail colours to flatter your unique skin tone.



Formula X Sheer Strength in Wondrous, $16: With its sheer pink hue, this dainty Formula X shade can easily complement the pink undertones of fair skin. The polish claims to be made with golden bamboo (which claims to hydrate the layers of the nail) and natural licorice extract (which is said to brighten the nails). The combination of safflower seed oil and sorbitol both claim to moisturize the nails, while keratin in the formula claims to function as a natural protein to encourage longer, stronger nails.



Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Fluorescent Beige, $22: The pale mauve pink tone of this Marc Jacobs Beauty nail polish is a winning fit for beauty addicts with medium skin tones. A beige pink colour will help to enhance the natural colour of your fingertips, while adding just a hint of soft and subtle colour. The nail polish claims to offer intensive high shine, due to the bonding agents in the formula.



Essie Neutrals Nail Color, All Eyes On Nudes, $8.50: If you’re looking for a nude shade to flatter the yellow or green undertones in your olive complexion, try a deeper shade of beige for an ideal shade. This classic Essie shade is a camel-toned polish which can emphasize a slightly warmer skin colour, while still looking neutral and simplistic.



NARS Nail Polish in Zakynthos , $25: For manicure maniacs who have rich tan or caramel complexions, try showcasing your fingertips in style with a deeper beige hue. This Zakynthos shade by NARS is a rich natural shade will bring your nude manicure to life. The polish states that it offers a long-lasting and high gloss finish, while the gorgeous colour will offer you a break from the season’s embellished tips and over-the-top nail art.
