Go Nude. I Dare You.

I’ve been on a nail polish kick lately.

It’s funny how that happens. I can sometimes go weeks with bare nails. I try not to let them go completely unkempt, but when one is busy, well, it occasionally cannot be helped. Then oneday, I’ll find the time to belly up to the nail counter at Primp and Polish and land a gloriously lacquered manicure. And then I can’t stop for months.

The way I see it, with great brows and a manicure, you’ve always got just the right amount of polish, no matter what you’re wearing or how disheveled your hair may be.

I’m all about an at-home manicure, so when time doesn’t afford me adorable nail art or a pristine shellac, I like to go nude. It’s practically foolproof and keeps busy hands looking neat and clean. A few of my favorite shades…

If pale pink isn’t really your thing, opt for a more neutral shade.

This shade of nude doesn’t look best on all skin tones, but I appreciate it’s name-appropriate likeness in color to pointe shoes.
