Nude Nails 2

26 March 2013




Long term readers of L'amour Josie will already know all about my love affair with nude nail polishes. Back when I was still fairly new to blogging, I threw together this post on five of my favourite neutrals, but time's passed since then - almost a year in fact - and my ridiculous obsession polish has only grown.

I already have my HG of the bunch, Don't Pretzel My Buttons (do I really need to rave about this shade again?), but Lychee deserves an honourable mention. I searched high and low for this bad boy - I'm talking multiple Boots and Superdrug's - and it was worth it. Creamy, glossy and perfect in two coats, a pretty great second.

Porchester Square is probably the least reached for just because it's very cool, which isn't too great against my warm skin tone, but don't let that put you off. Every time I swatch Van Gogh I think I should wear it more often, and Frenzy is reserved for very special occasions thanks to its eye watering price. In terms of quality, the OPI's are my favourite, but really they all have a similar wear time of 3-4 days. 

So there we have it, 2013's roundup of my favourite neutral nails (so far). What should I start adding to 2014's list?

  1. I love 'Lychee' too, the only negative is that it takes forever to dry on my nails. It's my first nude shade but I'll certainly be searching around for more!
