Just about every month evokes a strong desire to express myself in a distinctly different manner. After December’s run of glittering, dazzling holiday parties and events, the new year comes as a sensory relief. The new year feels fresh, simple, natural; a welcome tabula rasa for new intents and directions.
My mindset and wardrobe reflects it, and that cleansing philosophy also makes it way to my makeup and nails.
I’m happy to share with you my beauty secret to create a truly flawless nude nail look complementary to your skin tone. It’s simple, and it doesn’t require a specific polish color. You’ll be able to create this look with a few nail products that you likely may already have!
- OPI Natural Base Coat
- Essie “Room With A View” (or any sheer light pink polish; Essie provides a great selection)
- OPI Ridge Filler
- Nails Inc. London Caviar Topcoat
Beyond the new year, the nude nail is a gorgeous look for special events, weddings, vacations, and just about any other time you want a look with understated elegance. Are there any occasions you might like to try this out for?
Great post, I will have to try this some time!
Turquoise and Tortoiseshells
This cute. And the OPI is my favorite. Their colors are so solid and stand up well. I’m going to try this at home myself. thanks
LOVE a good nude nail!
Nude polish really is my favorite and I LOVE your tutorial. Thank you!
I totally agree, this is such a gorgeous look for the new year. A fresh new year doesn’t want anything too brash! Lovely colour!
I totally love your nails. I am going to have to try this for sure.
I think a nude nail is extremely classy and pretty. I just wish I had ‘nice-looking’ nails to begin with – they’ve always been kind of stubby looking, so I can paint them all I want, but they still look like ‘kiddie’ nails.
These are so pretty! I am always super impatient when it comes to doing my nails!
These are very pretty. I had my nails done like this for my daughter’s wedding. It’s a very elegant look.
I love that color and you are so good on film. Checking out your YouTube right now )
Wow what a pretty color! I love how classy this looks, matches everything.
Gorgeous. Simple and classy. Perfect for the fanciest of occasions. Very nice job!
Your nails look beautiful. I don’t wear bright colors so this would be perfect.
I always think it’s so elegant looking but I’ve never been able to find just the right shade. Yours looks great so I’ll have to grab a bottle of that Essie polish!
You can never go wrong with a good neutral polish color! They look amazing!
I don’t really do my finger nails ever, unless I’m going to an event, which I never do anymore. But this is really cute, I love your nails.
I don’t know that I could have my nails look that good in the nude. After years of gardening, they need some color. Haha!
Great tutorial! Love nude nails!
What a gorgeous nail tutorial! Love the outcome.
I’m still trying to grow my nails. I like the fact, that’s it’s nude and look amazing. Now, motivitation to grow some nails for 2015.
Those really are some gorgeous nails. I like color, but I like to look bare too… it’s a nice change!
Great video and wonderful tutorial! Whenever I do my nails, it looks like a complete mess haha I’ll try your tutorial!
Your nails are beautiful. I wish I could get nail polish to stay on my nails. I have tried so many different things.

Your nails look so beautiful. I tried creating nude nails this week on Abigail and me and I failed miserably. I’ll use your tutorial and give it another shot.
These look great! I am horribly ashamed to say that, at 30, I am still terrible at painting my own nails. :/ But I keep trying! I’m totally going to try this–I love the way nude nails look!
Your nails came out awesome. I get mine done at the salon and usually get colors, but I like the nude look, too.
This is so simple, I need start making some improvements with my nails. Great tutorial
