The Perfect Wintery Nude

It's always so difficult to find the perfect nude polish that fits your skin tone - some are too dark, some are too orange, some are too....well, you get the picture. I also feel that nude nail polishes will change based on the season. I needed to paint my nails a nude color and I found the perfect icy nude color for the cold winter months. Layering my polishes is something that I do frequently and that is how I found this color. 

I first took the nailpolish from Forever 21 called Taupe (which is only $2.80 by the way!) and put one coat on each nail.

Next I pained a thin coat of Essie's Tea and Crumpets over the polish and finished it off with a base coat (I use one by Revlon).

Putting these two colors together gives your nails a lighter nude with an icy shimmer that is perfect for winter. I also feel that this would look really good with a matte top coat (I'll have to give it a try next time!)

Short blog, I know, but I was just experimenting with my nail polishes and figured I'd share with you!

What are your favorite nude polishes??
