It has been frustratingly difficult to find a good nude nail polish, even though every time I visit the manicurist, she gives me three zillion fake painted nails from which to choose my colour. Since my nail salon stocks a pretty complete collection of OPI, I'm left thinking that the brand simply doesn't do a good nude, or that my particular shade of skin just doesn't match any of their shades. If you, too, have that problem (assuming you want your nails to match the rest of your body), here are a few alternatives. Shout if you've tried any of these.
Butter London's Tea with the Queen, my top pick:
Nail's Inc's Basil Street for a browner touch:
Eyeko Nude Polish, with a little hint of peach:
Rescue's Sheer Nude looks like a lovely true nude, but I haven't seen it on anyone:
And I guess to round things off, the more easily available MAC Abalone Shell:
