In The Nude: Top 5 Nude Nail Polishes


(left to right: Essie “Brooch the Subject”, Sally Hansen #240 “Choco-Latte”, OPI “Step Right Up”, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri #04 “Petal Pusher”, and OPI “Makes Men Blush”)

As a lover of anything dealing with nails and nailpolish … I thought it would only be right to help you ladies choose the right shade of nude for the Spring. Whether you work in a conservative/corporate environment or you just want to rock something soft and subtle, there’s a shade of nude out there for everyone. 

It took me quite some time to find the right shade, but a few years later lol, I have 2 top favorites, and 3 more great shades that follow 🙂

Essie “Brooch the Subject” $8 (my favorite)

This is my favorite nude shade because it’s opaque and still shows up like a rich color. Even though I’m going for a nude look, I don’t always want sheer. I bought it from Target about a month back.

Sally Hansen “Choco-Latte” $6

The Sally Hansen collection has honestly taken me by surprise. The Choco-Latte shade not only had a lot of pigment, but also had pretty peach undertones. Another great, affordable find.

OPI “Step Right Up” $8.50

This OPI shade leaned more towards a pale ballerina pink. I have on two coats below (which was a little streaky), but three would give you more of an opaque shade if you desire more pigment.

Sally Hansen “Petal Pusher” $4

This Sally Hansen color is from their Insta-Dri line. The major difference with these polishes is that it includes a wide polish brush that’s meant to make it easier to polish your nails in fewer brush strokes, without it looking streaky. Two coats gave me a little more of a sheer finish.

OPI “Makes Men Blush” $8.50

Finally this OPI shade in “Makes Men Blush” (which is such a cute name!) is a color I would wear if I were in a rush and needed a nice, sheer nude polish on my nails. It won’t give you an opaque finish, but on nicely manicured nails, still looks polished & feminine. 

Which nude shade do you like best? Do you have any other recommendations for nude polishes you fell in love with?
