Like a loyal best mate, the nude mani is always there for you. Sure, reds look great, but some of us are genetically wired to always opt for neutrals* (*I made that up, but surely it’s true?).
Job interviews, weddings, salon indecisiveness: sometimes, going nude with your nails really pays off. Since a neutral shade suits a natural finish, shellac is the perfect partner for paler polish. The ultimate ‘lightweight’ mani (a hybrid of polish and gel, applied in thin layers), your fingertips will look and feel fresh. But, the spectrum of shades available? Gulp.
When picking your polish, try holding the bottle, or a swatched nail, to your wrist. Think of it like choosing your foundation, and look for warm or cool shades, depending on your skin tone. Or just roll with it, and pick the polish that speaks to you (because, let’s face it, they do).
Consider this your research in shade-selecting: a round up of CND Shellac’s nude nail colours. From Victoria Beckham’s favourite ‘Naked Naiveté’, to ‘Grapefruit Sparkle’ – a sheer wash of nude shimmer – pick your favourite, screengrab it, book your appointment and embrace your neutral mani, in all its subtle wonder.Book your manicure
