The Most Flattering Nude Nail Polishes


Finding a flattering nude nail polish is similar to finding the perfect nude lipstick. It can take a bit of searching to separate the best shades from the close-but-not-quite right ones. A bit of extra shopping time is worth it because a neutral polish is a makeup bag staple. Furthermore, if your manicure is less than perfect, it is not as painfully obvious as it is when you’re wearing a look-at-me shade of blue. Here are 10 flattering nude nail polishes:
