When it comes to painting your nails this spring/summer season, you have a choice to make. All out colour or nude.
Now, you may think that nude is boring, and so not 'party' - 'It is your bday month afterall bb', I can hear you say. BUT before you discount the benefits of going nude, know this; pale nails are anything but plain. Especially when your beauty or fashion look it a little more colourful, as tends to be the case in summer. The other benefits of nude nails, other than avoiding a colour clash with your outfit of choice, is that it can make you fingers appear thinner and longer, and works for almost any occassion. Make that DOES work for any occassion. Must be why TheyAllHateUs beauties Tash and Elle love nude nails so much! And we'll have what they're having!
So, the only thing left to do is find the shade that works best for you...
Pale toned skin
Pale skin looks best against pale nudes with just a hint of pink. Try the Jacqueline Burchell HeyHey
orSkinDeepfor a slightly darker nude that won't overpower your peachy tones.
Or, if you need a little bit of 'colour' with your nude, try theSinful Colours in Vacation Time. It's got just a touch of coral pink that'll pop against medium tones.
Dark toned skin
Darker skin looks amazing with richer nudes that contain a slight taupe touch. Try the Butter LONDON All Hail the Queen- a deeper taupe tan with a slight shimmer for those that can't bear to go totally nude...
Or, for a similar shade sans shimmer, try the Jacqueline Burchell Being Mystery, below.
