If you have an internal debate on which shade of nude to go with, just pair them together. ⁣Choose 5 color shades of neutral nail polish and create these trendy cute skittles. When you create ombre nude nails you don’t need to worry too much about the colors, pairing different light tones of nude or going from light beige to dark: they all look stunning.

Nude and white french nails will evoke a more soothing effect on short nails and a super Parisian chic aesthetic on long almond nails. To wear a more classic look to a work meeting, for example, medium square beige nails with white tips are the appropriate aesthetic.

Matte Nude nails

Neutral matte nails are cute and chic, and I particularly love matte nails with brown or maroon nail polish, like in the second photo. To have that effect you can either buy matte nail polish or a mattifier.

Nude nail colors

After all these pretty and inspiring hands, you might be curious to know where to find the best neutral nail polish colors.

The color range in a nude palette varies a lot, they go basically from shades of light nude, beige, pinky nude, and warm peachy nude to a soft brown and darker, coffee neutral shade. You find them in your favorite beauty store, like Ulta, Beyond Polish (a nail lacquer paradise), or Sephora. Pearnova and Static Nails are gorgeous innovative brands with must-have nude nail polishes that will take your chic manicure to next level.

OPI is one of my favorite brands for nude colors and I found this useful post on Instagram that illustrates some popular neutral OPI nail polish colors.

If you are wondering what are the best neutral nail polish colors for dark skin the answer is: all of them. These stunning pictures from @pearnova are visual proof that all shades of nude look gorgeous on any black or brown skin.


So, in my opinion, nude nails will always be the best option for effortlessly chic women. Coffin nude nails are also a big trend in the nude nail design universe. I didn’t mention it in this post though, because I don’t think that long, coffin-shaped nails evoke the minimalist aesthetic that we focus on in this post.
