Do you like to go nude? you? Come on...don't be shy! I'm just teasing! I'm sure you guys know where this is going. What I'm really asking is if you all like nude nail polish colors?

If you were to ask me even a few weeks ago if I like nude nail polish colors, I would of said no. I thought with the millions of fabulous colors out there why would I put on a boring nude? Well, I got interested in this shade because of QVC(shopping network on TV). Yes, you can laugh. Late at night I'll throw on QVC,I have never bought a thing off there, but it seems to relax me or bore me enough to fall asleep. Anyways, a lot of the hosts on the show I saw wearing this sheer nude nail polish, and I really liked how clean and fresh that looked, so that is what inspired me to find a similar shade. I came across Milani Creme Brulee and this seemed to be what I was looking for.

Milani- Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee is a sheer beige-nude-cream color. I'm sure since this is so sheer it will look different on different skin tones if that makes sense. This is 3 coats, but I think I could with 4. It's a very clean and natural look that is foreign to me, but I like it.

This is probably not a look I'll reach for often, but I'm glad I have it. I'm sure I'm not alone in this but I'd say about 95% of the time I do my nails in different colors of the rainbow. However, there are times that I just feel like I want to do something light or natural. I think this would be perfect polish for those times. It's very neat and fresh looking without having to go completely bare!

So, what do you think? Do you like nude nail polish colors?

Have a nice day!


  1. I felt the same as you. I love nudes now and have a few. You also need nudes for different skin tones and times of the year. They can make you feel clean and fresh.

  2. This looks really nice with your skin tone. Not too pale or dark.

    I used to hate nudes, but I'm starting to like...come around a little bit. You're right that sometimes, it's nice to just have a clean, fresh look. Unfortunately, I don't have any that will give me mannequin hands, and I probably won't ever, because I hate brown nail polish. :(

    And your poll is too hard!! :p

  3. I never use to like nudes but my collection is growing with all nudes, taupes, mushroomy type neutrals :)

    An opaque nude is really good to use as a base to cover up vnl before putting on a sheer or thin colored polish.

    Creme Bruelee looks really nice on you! Is it a jelly finish? :)

  4. Before I got into nail polish blogs I never would have chosen a nude polish, but now I totally get them and their benefits and I am a fan!

  5. I'm afraid I really don't care much for nudes, except as an underpolish to make sheer colors less so! One of the main reasons I do my nails is to have a pop of color where I can look at it often - it cheers me up somehow. And nudes just don't make me happy that way.

    I can see why people would go for the look, but I don't think it's for me.

  6. I don't really care for nudes. Usually, when I'm going for a more neutral look, I reach for sheers with a bit of shimmer.

  7. jaljen- I don't know if I LOVE nudes yet, but I'm definitely starting to like them and see how some can look great on my nails. I'm sure this won't be my only nude purchase!

    Chaos- Thank you. I'm still in the coming around stage. I don't know if I'd like a creme nude, but I may experiment. Hehe, I know my poll is hard. :P I'm sorry!

    rmcandle I've also been getting in taupes and more muted shades. I'm kind of a kick now where I'm interested in trying out stuff in the past I dismissed quickly. I think Creme Brulee is meant to be a sheer since in 3coats it still is pretty sheer. However, if you were build up the coats it probably would be jelly-like.

    Rebecca- I understand what you mean. I think blogging has actually changed my perspective. I really want to venture out and try stuff I would of thought I hated before.

    Tropical- No worries, I completely understand you. Nudes aren't really my thing, but for those limited occasions I feel like doing something different and toned down I like having that option, it's definitely not for everyone though.

    cupcake-Sheers with you may have got me started on looking for something else. Those sound pretty! :)

  8. I agree with what TropicalChrome said. I like bright fun colors that will cheer me up!! Nudes really are not my thing. I do think some of them look pretty good on other people though.

  9. I love running around nekkid! LOL oh, nude (sorry). Interesting color. It almost looks edible.

  10. Aw I love QVC :-)
    I've never tried nude polish but I'd be willing to experiment.

  11. I like nude shades for base for konad. :) Yes, I'm konad addict! lol

  12. I totally enjoy going nude on occasion - there are time I even go all natural, well, I'll have on a nail envy, a base coat, Instant Artificial and a top coat - just to be all clear. I have Creme Brulee and enjoy wearing it on those days when I want to look fresh. Like RMC - my nudes, taupes, mushrooms are growing. I don't know how that happened!! :-)
