Since we’ve now approached that time of year when it’s too early to start unpacking the sweaters and too late to sport bright, flashy “it’s summer!” colors, I decided to go neutral. I call this my Pre-Fall look. Neutrals are the perfect shade to choose when nothing else fits and what better neutral to pick than nude?!
Crabtree & Evelyn London recently introduced their Nud-Est Collection of nail lacquer that’s “bare yet bold” and “subtle yet sensational.” The shades availible are Alabaster (a creamy ivory with pearl shimmer), Peaches & Cream (a peachy pink with shimmer), Almond (a pale beige-nude) and Mocha (a warm mocha with platinum shimmer). Each runs for $6.00 USD.
The polishes are formulated without camphor, dibutyl phthalates, formaldehyde or toluene, leaving nails clean of chemicals.
The shade I set out to try was Almond. Not only did it look like the perfect nude (from just the bottle), I loved the amount-of-polish-to-price ratio and that it was travel-sized perfectly to throw in my purse before my mani!
After applying 2 coats, this was the result. I was quite pleased with it because it came out glossy even without a topcoat.
After seven days of wear (and 1 application of top coat!) this is the result…
Why not “go nude” and try it!
