Nude Nails - Would You?

I don't have perfect nails or hands but I am still enjoying sporting Miner's Nail Paint in Apricot Blush. It's a gorgeous shimmery nude.

I never and I mean ever hesitate in sporting a Nail Paint. That's the only thing I can experiment with without thinking twice. I mean come on, its just your hands at the end of the day, what's the harm in sporting even a rainbow?

It does not even seem to bother me that this color does not suit me much, as long as I like the look of it.

This again is not one of the usual colors people sport, as it would not come in their comfort zone. It's a runway color to be honest, pretty light and flesh colored.

The problem with nude nail colors is that they can easily wash off the color of your hands and make you look shockingly pale and lifeless.

But in my opinion this particular color does not do that. It allows you to pull off such a shade by providing a hint of color and merely making you appear 'trendy' and not dead.

Plus the quality is not bad either. This is two coats finished with a top coat. It stays on for two days without chipping.

This shade was provided to me by the company and retails for only £2.99. Cheap as chips! (well not really but lets just use the phrase for now).

Check it out here.

Would you sport nude nails? I would love to know your favourites.

The colour is nice:) I like wearing nudes which don't have too much of a grey/ash tone to them xoxo

I'm the same way! At times I think my nails look decent but in the end I think I don't have the 'perfect' hands or nails. I crack my knuckles (a horrible habit of mine) and at times I find myself biting my nails off. :/ I love to experiment with my nails as well and I can never find the right shade of nude but I like to go for a peachy kind of nude. :)

I would absolutely wear nude nails! I love that the nail color would go with any outfit you wear since it's neutral.

I love nude nails! It's such a classic timeless look that goes with everything, I feel like you can get away with nude nails longer because you can't notice much chipping.

I'm not usually a fan of nude nails, but I like this one for some reason. Probably because it's so light and has that hint of peachy or pink.

I would but I find that some nudes which are meant for caucasian skin don't raelly come up nude on me. Once I find the perfect nude for myself I'll be wearing it all the time!

I think nude nails are gorgeous. I really like the colour you have on. I've never heard of Miner's, are they available in the UK? I just ordered Essie Body Language which seems to be a nude and can't wait to try that out with tanned hands in the summer.
