Nude colored nail polishes are a spring nail polish trend 2012. Nude, or flesh toned nail polishes, are a perfect choice for short nails. Nude nail polish is also appropriate for professional work places that may frown upon too colorful of polishes.
Nude nail polish colors include pinks, yellows and browns. When choosing a neutral nail polish, be sure to select one that matches your natural skin tone and undertones.
For light skin tones, pink or yellow based nudes are best. For medium skin tones, polishes with gold undertones work well. For dark skin tones, try brown based polishes.
For cool undertones, look for baby pink or colors with a bluish undertone. For warm undertones, try a beige or peach. If you are not sure whether you have cool or warm undertones, take the bellasugar quiz.
If you choose a sheer polish, be sure to buff your nails and use a base coat to get a nice smooth application.
