THE GUIDE:
BEST NUDE NAIL POLISHES FOR EVERY SKIN TONE
…and mood.


Of all the colors in the world, nude will forever be our favorite. It’s an enduring classic—but make no mistake: nude is never boring, nor is it a singular, pink-toned beige. It’s a beautiful spectrum of tones.

Nudes are effortless; polished, always (making them the perfect nail color for work); and complement any look, no matter your mood. Find a shade that best matches your skin to elongate your nails and you’ll have achieved the ultimate “mannequin” hands. Or, choose one that directly contrasts in shade, but matches your undertone—voila.
A sophisticated statement at your fingertips. Look no further for help navigating neutrals.

Here’s our guide to finding the best nude nail polish for your skin tone:


Best Sheer Neutral:

INVISIBLE CROWN

For an easy, breezy, sheer wash of color, reach for Invisible Crown. This ballet slipper pink has a neutral undertone that suits all skin tones—plus, the hint of pink instantly brightens nails, erasing any discoloration to give your manicure a natural your-nails-but-better finish.

Best for Ivory Skin:

MURRAY ME

Murray Me is a creamy French vanilla. It’s beautiful on fair skin with neutral or warmer undertones, and contrasts beautifully with deeper skin, too.

Best for Fair Skin:
UNCOVERED

 

It's a pink-tinged beige that’s perfectly creamy and oh-so-pretty. Fair—light, pink-toned—skin tones will love Uncovered. So will medium or dark skin tones: the pinky contrast adds a touch of femininity without being too saccharine swaddeet. 


UNCOVERED


The perfect mix of beige, cream, and pink - you just found your new go-to nude polish.

Best for Light to Medium Skin:
PEACH POP



Beige with a (literal) pastel apricot pop? Yes please. It’s subdued and cheerful all at once; on medium skin tones, it adds brightness that lifts and softens. On medium to deep tones, it becomes a creamy take on 60s mod.

Best for Neutral to Olive, Light-Medium to Medium Skin:
BESPOKED

Bespoked is pale but warm-toned, pastel pink. Because of its porcelain base, it adds just enough light and contrast to make your nude mani stand out. On deeper skin tones, it’s a softer (but just as bright!) alternative to a stark white.

Best for Neutral, Light-Medium to Medium Skin:
CROWNING CRUMPET

This is a sheer, rosy nude for light to medium skin. Because of its warm pink undertone, Crowning Crumpet is most flattering on neutral to golden undertones.

Best for Neutral, Medium Skin:
THE FULL MONTY

The Full Monty is a creamy desert sand. It’s beige, but by no means boring, adding sunny warmth to medium skin. (Plus, it complements deeper skin tones beautifully, too.)

SHOP NOW



Best for Golden or Olive, Medium Skin:
TEA TIME

For warm, medium-toned skin, these are the perfect nudes. Tea Time is a sheer, tanned ecru for a barely-there coat of color.

Best for Neutral or Golden, Medium to Medium-Deep Skin:
PLIÉ

SHOP NOW



Best for Cool, Medium to Medium-Deep Skin:
CAFE AU LAIT

For medium to medium-deep skin with cool undertones, Café au Lait is the ultimate nude. It’s a creamy taupe—the perfect ratio of milk to coffee—that looks beautiful on light and deep skin, too.

SHOP NOW



For Rich, Medium-Deep to Dark Skin:
PECAN PIE

Pecan Pie is exactly as your imagination suggests: it’s a tawny milk chocolate with depth, featuring burnt orange undertones. Fair skin tones would love this too: it helps neutralize pinkness by adding warmth and depth.

SHOP NOW



Best for Dark to Deep Skin:
MUDSLIDE

For dark to rich, deep skin, Mudslide is the best nude. It’s a decadent brown (on the cool side) with notes of taupe.

Best for Neutral, Light-Medium to Dark Skin:
HONEYMOON

Tired of beige, but still married to nudes? Try a mauve-y polish to switch things up without stepping outside of your (favorite) comfort zone. Honeymoon is pretty on all skin tones, but especially those with neutral undertones.

SHOP NOW



Best for Neutral, Dark to Deep Skin:
NATURAL CHARM

This is a rich, purpled taupe made with dark, cool-toned skin in mind. It’s sophisticated, mysterious, and  more wearable than you think; lighter skin tones will love this as a softer alternative to black nail polish.

Best for Cool to Neutral, Deep Skin:
TRUE TO FORM



Dirty purple never looked so chic: it’s a beautiful nude for deeper skin tones and a stunning statement for light to medium skin.
