Nude Nail Polishes: Dior, Ciate, butter LONDON, Yves Rocher, Rimmel and MeMeMe

For someone who is not exactly into “nude” nail polishes, I have quite a few. I have chosen seven which could fit the nude/taupe/brown-ish category.

So what shades do I have? And which is my favourite?

Nude Nail polishes Dior, Ciate, MeMeMe, butter LONDON, Yves Rocher,Rimmel

Dior Vernis in Grege

I love the wide and thin brush which makes the application super easy and fast.  It is a beautiful warm shade which suits me when I get some tan. But if you have a light-to-medium warm skin tone – this may be a perfect nude for you.  See it applied on the nails.

MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring

This is one of the darkest nail polishes from the selection, and should be a nice nude for people with darker skin. Or if you want a brown nail polish against the light skin.  The quality is nice for the price, too.  Swatches.

Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Taupe

This is definitely not a nude, but a taupe.  Such shade was super popular several years ago and I can totally see why: it goes well with pretty much everything and doesn’t compete with your outfit or accessories. Manicure with it.

Nails Of The Day: Rimmel 60 Seconds in 710 Alaska

I like Rimmel’s 60 Seconds nail polishes a lot and have quite a few shades, my favourites are blue Sky High and fuchsia Funtime Fuchsia.

I have picked up their Alaska nail polish last month, as I though it may look nice with my skin tone. And I do love how it looks like on.

Unfortunately, this particular shade goes on a bit streaky and I have  to apply two-three coats to make it look decent. Luckily, Seche Vite smooths it out perfectly and it looks great. Other than that I have nothing to dislike.

Thin and wide brush, nice staying power, affordable price and a beautiful shade.

As you may know, I love my berry and

Nails Of The Day: Dior Vernis in Grege

I have already written about the foundation and the lipstick from the newest Dior Nude launch so today I want to tell you about the nail polish from the range.

I have a shade which is called Grège (£18) and which is described as ‘ the flagship colour of the New Look imagined by Christian Dior in 1947, the association of nude beige and luminous grey that is oh so very Dior.’

I really love the wide brush this nail polish comes with as it make the application easy and fast. The formula is smooth and non-streaky and you get a nice shade with one coat but I usually use two.

MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring Review and Swatches

It’s hard for me to believe but I did not wear any nail polish for almost three weeks so I thought it was time to paint my nails finally.

And since it’s summer, I am wearing more colourful clothes, so I thought I’d go for a nudish shade which I haven’t show you before. I’ve chosen MeMeMe Alluring.

It applies smoothly and looks opaque with two coats, stays on for three-four days on me, plus such shade really goes on with everything.

Once again, I think this is a nice quality for the price.
