Frame; Simply Nude Too!

By Julie Jacobs

Nail brands are leading the way (as I would expect them to), creating colours with undertones from dark chocolate, rich caramel, soft peach to subtle pinks.  I’ve been impressed with O.P.I Leighton DennyNails INCZoyaDeborah lippmann, CND and in particular Butter LONDON, who have a wonderful range called Tinted Moisturiser in six translucent colours and shades.  So following on from Simply Nude lipsticks, flesh-toned nail varnishes are growing to encompass a wider range of complexions.  Although I have noticed a lot of brands carry colours from mid to very dark ‘flesh’ shades, do not put them in the ‘Nude’ section but will generally be in the Brown section instead. I wonder if this is because they’re referencing the colour of the nail bed and not the skin?  So either way a little searching on your part is needed.
