Natural nudes

Don’t worry if the colors of this season are too bright for you. Nude nail polish has always been a favorite but don’t choose shades that make your hands look like a mannequin. Pick a shade that is opposite to your skin tone and opt for high gloss or shimmer if you want a glamorous look. The best thing about nudes is that they go very well with every other outfit.
