Until very recently, I thought nude-hued manicures were about as boring as it gets. Why spend money on a barely-noticeable manicure when there are 475 shades of blue?
Then, a few weeks ago I got a manicure in Doe My Dear and loved the way it subtly elevated anything I wore, without any concerns about matching or clashing, etc. And, in 2015, there’s a nude nail for everyone. From glossy to matte, ballerina pinks to luscious caramels to cocoa browns, and paler than the palest skin tone to darker than the darkest, there’s something for everyone. And if you happen to fall for the look—or if you’re already a devotee of the neutral nail, there are also some awesome sets that run the gamut and cover the neutral rainbow, making it easy to go lighter or darker depending on the season, mood, or outfit.
