Disclaimer: I am sorry for the lack of posts recently, I have been away in England on holiday last week (blog posts coming soon!), and I have had a lot of work for uni so unfortunately the blog was a little let down. Hopefully I'll get back to my regular schedule as soon as possible!
Although I love painting my nails in every colour of the rainbow, I think nothing beats a pretty nude. Nude manicures (and I'm not talking about French manicures here, not my thing at all!) are so delicate and sophisticated in their simplicity, that we can't go wrong with them. There are different types of nude shades, and even slight undertones can make a change on the result you'll end up with! Today, I am sharing with you my two all-time favourite nude nail polishes. coincidentally both from OPI. They might look quite similar in the photos, but they are two different shades and tones : Samoan Sand and Bubble Bath.
Samoan Sand is a gorgeous beige shade. As you can see, it is quite sheer - for a light finish you can go with two coats, but if you prefer your nude nails opaque than you'll have to go for three coats (that's what I generally do). It is a light beige that would suit most skin colours. I find that sometimes if you feel like pink shades don't suit you, beige is a good one to go for because it is more neutral.
I've had Bubble Bath for a few years now, and as you may be able to tell, I've used it a lot! It is a pretty, light pink shade. Just like the other nail polish, you'll need three coats for an opaque colour. With this one, maybe because it is pink, I love to add glitter on top of it. It makes the best princess manicure!
Both nail polishes are great quality and will last you a long time without losing that quality of application. They dry quite quickly, but you always have to be careful when you reach the third coat as it takes longer for it to dry then. O.P.I. have various other nude shades, but these are the two that have caught my eye! I know Essie make stunning nude colours as well, so I'll have to take a look at them for my next nude nail polish purchase (probably a grey-toned nude!).
Do you like wearing nude nail polish? What is your favourite?
