The Best Nude Polish For Your Skin Tone

The Best Nude Polish For Your Skin Tone

By Mandie Brice1 min read

One of the best options for someone who likes to be low-maintenance or may not have the time, money, or patience to always get a new manicure is a nude polish. Colors close to our natural skin tone are less likely to show any chips or nicks. This seems like a super simple solution, but in reality, there are infinite numbers of skin tones, which of course means that what’s nude on me could be a dramatic look (and therefore easy to see chips) on someone else. That's likely why Christian Louboutin has a 10 shade line of nail polishes specifically called “The Nudes!”

If it’s in your budget, feel free to find the one out of the 10 that's best for you. But if you don’t have $50 for one bottle of nail polish, don’t worry - you don’t have to be a professional makeup artist with a strong background in color theory to pick your perfect nude polish (though a bit of mixology could help)! If you want to get a good idea in a hurry if you like a shade, try holding your foundation bottle next to the shade of nail polish you’re considering. If they look good together, the chances are good that you’ll like how the polish looks on your nails, too!
