But what if you fall in love with a shade that doesn't work the first time around? You can still sometimes fudge it. "There's this one shade that I love that doesn't look right on me," Lippmann says. "But if I put a thin layer down, let it dry completely, and then add another thin layer, it looks good." Finding the right system to cheat your polish might take some trial and error, but with a little patience, your perfect nude shade will present itself to you.
Nude nails were a massive trend at the Spring 2013 international fashion shows, and we're predicting your nails will be permanently painted nude in the coming months. The nothing but everything shade is the perfect edition to every girl's beauty cupboard, but finding the perfect nude can be tricky. Some polishes look nude in the bottle but actually come out quite sheer, but we recommend a solid nude — one that disguises the whole nail — to rock this trend. You don't really want to have to do more than two coats, but three is absolutely fine. Just remember to let each layer dry completely before painting the next. Check out our top five nude polishes on every budget — these won't disappoint.
