I’m always on the look out for an amazing “my nails but better” colour, and would love your suggestions. I normally only put on one-two coats so my natural colour still comes through from underneath, and I feel like pictures on the internet are never true-to-colour (for nudes anyway); even when i photograph my own nails, they look like a completely different colour than in real life, so your personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!
My favourite atm is OPI’s coney island cotton candy, but sometimes i find it’s a little too white/light. Not sure how to describe my skin tone, except for maybe lightly bronzed – my skin holds a light tan pretty much year-round, and i’ve found that anything with even a hint of pink eg. OPI’s bubble bath or ti-tan your toga makes my nails look super rose.
I’m also open to anti-suggestions if you’ve tried a colour you thought would be amazing that wasn’t

Omg I practically made it a full time job hunting for the perfect nudes. I have very short natural nails but still want a nice manicured look.
I love Essie “boy best friend” and a pinker shade is “sugar daddy” or “spaghetti strap” two coats of color and one topcoat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri “clearly quick” and you’ve literally got 10 day perfect nails!!!
I have found that Essie brand is superior to all my previous OPI favs, it dries faster, has a shinier finish (if i skip a topcoat) and stays on chip free FOREVER!!! And Walgreens carries it now for like $6.00!

I’m not saying this purely because of my ‘bee name, but OPI’s “You calling me a Lyre” from their NYC Ballet line is the BEST nude color, it’s definitely not too light, and looks amazing on it’s own.
