In The Nude

There have been an abundance of sleek nude nails at London Fashion Week and we agree that it's the perfect tone for autumn.

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Models Own polishes, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that my go-to nude is their 'Nude Beige'. It's a little darker than my skin tone, but I find it works as the perfect base for nail art.

I've put together a collection of my favourite Nude Beige based creations; 
Plain Matte - This is two coats of Nude Beige with a matte topcoat (Essie - Matte About You). It's a great classic and sophisticated style.

Big Bow - Two coats of Nude Beige again with a single large bow on the accent nail. I drew the bow on in white first, then outlined it with a black nail art pen and added the detailing.

Leopard & Bow - Gold and black leopard on top of Nude Beige is a fave of mine, I also love this leopard combo on turquoise or mint.

Mix & Match - I used the Nude Beige as a constant base colour for a grey and silver mix and match. This toned down the very busy style a little as these nails were to go with a hot pink and grey dress! 

Wedding Nails - I decided to go for something special for my big bro's wedding earlier this year. Luckily they both have very neat four letter names, so I couldn't resist some lettering nails. As my outfit was quite bright (I wore this Oasis dress) I stuck with a Nude Beige base, with black lettering and a hint of neon pink (Models Own Ice Neon - Bubblegum) on the thumbs.

What's your favourite nude tone?
