Just got my latest Marie Claire September issue with the crazy gorgeous Blake Lively on the cover. And I knew after looking through the first half of the magazine, what my next manicure was going to look like…NUDE.
I ALWAYS wear obnoxious bright colored nail polish, it’s my favorite, from hot reds to purples and corals, or even bold blues. It’s my thing. But after seeing her nude mani on the front (yes, I am a professed copycat) and the ads from Marc Jacobs, Dior, and Chloe, with ALL of the models sporting flesh colored nails, I knew I had to try it. Contrary to my usual thinking that it’s a “boring” shade, I now have a new found appreciation for it and find it to look fresh, clean, and matches everything I wear!! Not to mention super chic and grown up looking.
And since I had to try this look right then and there, I scoured through my polish bags (I have 2 of them) and found a Revlon shade I’ve had forever (Revlon Colorstay Trade Winds, $5) but never actually used until now! Don’t you just love discovering a product you bought but haven’t used yet?? I do love the way it has turned out and so far, zero chipping. The good news about nude nails, I bet even when it does chip, it will hardly be as tacky and noticeable as my usual bright polishes are!! Bonus.
