The search for the perfect nude nail





Fancy going nude? Follow our quick guide to help you pick your perfect shade of nude for the latest spring trend!

Fair Skin – Sheer Pink or Pink-y Nude

The best neutral tone for fair skin is pink because it supports the pink and blue undertones in pale skin tones. Stay away from beige colours as it will make your hands look too pale.

Medium Skin – Pink-y Beige or Pale Taupe

A pink-y beige will help brighten the natural skin tone, but stay away from grey tinted neutrals as they’ll make your skin look too ashy. If pinks not your thing a brownish beige will also be flattering.

Olive Skin – Creamy Beige or Soft Peach

Look for a nude with gold undertones, this will make your skin look brighter and more alive. Avoid anything too pale which will make your skin look sallow. If you have pale olive skin try a soft peach to give your skin a warm glow. Stay away from grey neutrals, they’ll make your skin look too ashy.

Dark Skin – Rosy Beige or Cocoa/Mocha

Dark skin suits any shade of nude, but a rosy beige will contrast nicely, as will any coffee coloured nude with yellow or orange undertones.
