My Top 5 Everyday Nude Polishes

Hi guys ! Happy Friday . How was your week ? Hopefully not too hectic . Mine has been very busy with juggling parenthood (and a kid with a million and one activities ) with work and blogging. But I survived - so a big yeah for that. 

Today I will be sharing my Top 5 Everyday Nude Nail Polishes with you guys. As you know I love a good nude nail polish - and they are usually my go to shade every week ( well at least until my good friend Siobhan convinced me to do the #52weeknailchallenge with her) . 

For the last few years I usually just went with nude nails and the occasional pink nails as my go to. I love how classic it looks and that it goes with everything. Most work environments require a more neutral look and nothing too over the top.  Do I think it might be a little boring and predictable ? Sure , perhaps if you like more bolder colours ... But these are my favourites that I recommend to anyone looking for a good nude polish staple in their collection. 

Essence el Nail Polish Dream On
This is a stunning polish Essence sent me last year December in a PR package - and they must have known my love for a good nude nail polish. This colour is more light yellow toned nude polish - but even though I prefer more white or beige toned nudes - this one has a great wear time and looks pretty awesome too. I wore it for the #52weeknailchallenge HERE . 
Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in All or Nothing
I love the Revlon gel line polishes. With the special Revlon Gel Top coat I find these last extremely well and can easily throw whatever your weeks throws at you . I don't know if the darker colours in the range last as well - but I have two of the more nude / pink ones and they last forever. This is such a classic light milky pink that really compliments light skin tones (although I'm pretty this will look amazing on darker skin tones too ) 
Sally Hansen Gel Miracle Birthday Suit
As with the Revlon Gel Range I do love the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line. This line also has a special top coat - and although it takes a little longer to dry - it does help prolong the wear on these polishes. Again ... I have quite a few in the range and they do last amazingly well and the colour is such a classic everyday nude that goes with everything . To get opacity like in the swatch picture - I'd recommend 3 coats. 
OPI My Vampire is Buff
OPI My Vampire is Buff is a creamy yellow nude polish. While I don't really love of gravitate towards these kinds of nudes - I really love the look of this polish . Formula wise the polish is a little more sheer so about three coats are needed for opacity . 
piCture pOlish Beige
piCture pOlish Beige is a classic nude creme polish. Formula wise this polish is amazing and goes on like butter.This is one of my favourites as it lasts amazingly well and looks stunning. All downside they are extremely hard to find in South Africa - but if you can get your hands on any of these polishes they are amazing to own.
