For my first ever blog post I decided to go back to basics. Don't get me wrong I love bright colours and will often mix and match a tonne of colours in one mani. However sometimes its nice to strip back and wear a classic chic nude shade. After almost a year of collecting nudes from every brand, I have finally found 2 that are remarkably close to my skin tone and apply well.
First up we have OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons. A creme polish from the Germany Collection released in 2012. Opaque in two coats with an excellent formula that is forgiving on application. Its mainly a sandy brown base with mushroom and pink undertones
I tend to gravitate towards the OPI for nail art due to its opacity. I used it with multi coloured stamping and its lightness complimented the 3 pink and purple shades, allowing them to stay true to form vs. adding a brown tinge to their original colour. I am sure that both of these polishes will be in high rotation, with the Deborah Lippman being a nice colour for when I have more of a tan in the summer months.
