Backstage at Dior models wore skyline Vernis Nail Polish in Minimal to compliment the blackened lips and spidery lashes for an uncomplicated, modern, gothic look.
I searched the highstreet for some quality nudes and was pleasantly surprised by the pigmentation, application and longevity.
Ones to try
Top left to Right
Nail Paint Palette – Truffle (worn above)
A fairly new brand, this is by far one of my favourite nude shades. The pink toned beige applies evenly and the creamy texture evens out the surface for a professional finish.
OPI – Heart Throb
More of a barely there shade, it doesn’t provide a lot of coverage but does a great job of making nails look healthy. It’s almost like a foundation for the nails!
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine – Lychee
Reminiscent of a milky latte, this is a toned down version of the popular white nail trend. It’s more forgiving and gives nails a neat professionally manicured look. This is my go to when I have a short square nail shape and want an elegant look.
Tanya Burr – New Chapter
This is my first time trying these nail products and I have to say I’m incredible impressed! One application provided an even, well opaque finish and lasted longer than a lot of brands I have tried.
New Chapter is a beautiful taupe/grey shade in a matte finish that works with any outfit. It was also the nail polish I chose to wear when I went into hospital to give birth to my son!
Soft Pyjamas seen below is a stunning pink toned nude and looks incredibly chic on the nails. I have been wearing this constantly and like to paint Nails Inc topcoat over the top to give a glossy finish. I like the matte but it’s not a forgiving texture if the nails aren’t perfectly smooth so prefer a gel like surface.
