The Nail File #26: Which Nude Nail?
Tuesday, 15 October 2013
Oh look, a post in which I'm not banging on about that Dior BB Cream for once! I was having a bit of a clear out the other day (I'm currently in home decor, everything crammed into one room hell) and going through my utterly ridiculous nail polish collection, I realised that if I could only own one it would be a nude one. *Note, one shade not god forbid only one nail polish...
Much loved but not often mention on LLA is the palest of the trio Butter London Cuppa this is one I regularly lacquer up with for work. Ideal for when I want to pretend I'm a chic, put-together kinda gal. Easy to wear and flattering on all skin tones. I do need a few layers to reach the opaqueness that I like but it's worth the effort as it is such a beaut.
When I want a high-shine, glass-like finish I reach for Topshop Threadbare which has a hint of taupe but is still on the beige side of things. This has such a smooth application and has great longevity for the price. I'm loving Topshop's lipsticks and nail polishes, I really want to try more of their makeup.
Now I couldn't pen a post about subtle hued tones without including Chanel Frenzy mentioned countless times but I never miss an opportunity to rave about it again! I know some people question the lasting power of Chanel offerings but I personally don't find them too bad. The darkest of the bunch and warm enough not to give mannequin hands, I LOVE this shade.
As it gets cooler, I'm excited to wear more reds and berry colours but for now, I'm full embracing the nudes. Oo-er.
