The Hunt: Nude Polish

There has been a lot of inner turmoil in my life lately and I've found myself drawn to just wearing nude nail polish.  This prompted me to assemble all my nude polishes together in order to determine which was the perfect one for me.  I think these are all good wear to work polishes, great for the days when you don't want your nail polish to distract from the message you're trying to deliver.

While I have my own favorites I'm curious as to what you think.  Which nude polish do you think is right for me?

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Choco-Latte

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Choco-Latte is a pale beige with peach/pink tones.  I have an "older" bottle of Choco-Latte and a significant portion of the polish is gone from it.  At the level where the polish currently resides a lot of bright pink pigment is separating out and needs a lot of shaking to get it to mix properly.  It's my least favorite of the bunch but I thought I'd include it in this collection because I have worn it a lot.  

OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?

OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? is from the OPI Spring 2011 Holland Collection and is a pale tan nude with yellow/grey undertones.  I'm not really a fan of how this color looks on me.  I used it as a base for a manicure on my mom and I think it looks much better with her slightly darker skin tone.  

Zoya Kennedy

Zoya Kennedy is from the Zoya 2011 Winter Feel Collection.  It's a pale, beige cream that leans pink.  I think this color looks very soft on me and I'm a fan of it.  

Zoya Pasha

Zoya Pasha is described as a soft, pale taupe beige nude with silver frost and a hint of microglitter. This color is from the Zoya Suede collection from way back when (circa 2004 maybe?).  I loved the frost, I thought it lent the perfect spark this polish needed from being just a boring brown.

Zoya Shay

Zoya Shay is from the Zoya 2011 Touch collection and is described as a light peach nude with red/orange undertones.  Similar to Zoya Pasha, Shay has  a bit of a frosty-look to it.  I used two coats of polish to achieve this look, but I'm guessing three coats would eliminate that patchiness I see on a couple of my nails.

Now I need your help.  Which nude pictured above do you think looks best on me?  What nudes am I missing that you think I should have?  


  1. Sorry you are in a downer...hope that funk is lifted soon for ya! My favs for you out of these is first the Zoya Kennedy...hands down the best, imho...and second the Zoya Shay.

    1. Thank you! I agree with your choices. It seems like the lighter and more pink the better.

  2. It's so funny to pick my favs just to scroll down and see the exact same thing already posted lol. I guess great minds think alike hehehe. Yes, Kennedy is the winner with Shay being a nice alternative.
