One of the best ways to get an easy and chic mani is with a nude polish. The only problem can be finding the perfect nude nail polish for every skin tone. And if you're familiar with the struggle of finding your perfect nude lip, you'll know why. It's not just about finding a shade that is roughly light or dark enough. The undertone and finish of a polish can really make or break a nude mani.
But even though the hunt can be likened to shopping for jeans (which, let's be honest, isn't always fun), having that perfect match is totally worth it. Not only can a nude mani make your fingers look longer, but also tip-wear isn't as obvious as with a bright polish, so you can go longer between touch-ups. If that's still not enough reason, a nude mani also transcends seasonal trends and goes with every outfit so you'll never have to worry about keeping up with the vamps and neons or clashing with your top. And whether you're fair and cool-toned or deep and warm-toned, there's a polish option that will give you that perfect, nude manicure. Here are 12 of those options to try:
