What's your go to pinky nude nail colour?
60

Peterbishopssarcasticsmile · 09/07/2020 11:35

Looking for something quite neutral and understated for every day to make me feel a bit more put together but everything I've tried so far is too nude so I look like I have corpse hands, or too pink so it's more of a brighter baby pink.

Any suggestions? Something that doesn't chip easily would also be amazing!

I like Essie spaghetti strap, a very pale pink.

I really like Mavala velvet. It just looks polished and it's very forgiving if you're not an expert at applying nail varnish!

I've just done a manicure using these. The Maybelline one is called Rose Poudre. I've been using it as my "neutral" for years and with the base and top coat it lasts a good week or so.

Getting the perfect pinky nude for my nails is a seemingly endless mission.
I love that one that @StCharlotte has posted, looks exactly like I want.
I’m very cool toned and have learnt through many errors that most colours described as nude make my hands look dirty Grin
Still looking. Still buying. And now I’ve switched to gel (DIY) it’s even harder/more expensive mistakes
Please keep the suggestions coming folks, and tell us what your skintone is as well

I like the essie ballet one I find it really hard wearing, and that's speaking as someone who usually has gel nails but I've been using the essie during lockdown

With green veins you are an olive probably.
Do u tan easily?

I'm actually fair skinned but I do tan, although I wouldn't say "easily". I'd say I was a classic "English rose". Hands are quite tanned at the moment so the nail varnish doesn't stand out as much as normal.

Googling all these shades
I'm fair and I get red skin definitely have red/pink undertones and my hands also go a bit purply when cold so finding the perfect nude is HARD

I find ballet slippers a bit too white. Same with Rimmel English Rose - although the bottle itself is the perfect shade.
Am following with interest - am also on the lookout for this.

Maybelline Porcelain is nice. It's also slightly iridescent so looks different when you move your hands. I like Rose Poudre as already mentioned and they have another in the same range that's something like nude rose (I can't find the bottle now to check). They all wear really well.

I coat of miracle cure as a base coat then 2 coats of Sally Hansen “Shell We Dance” with a slick of Sech Vite over the top. All dry really quickly. Job done and nails haven’t looked so healthy in years.
