Go Nude: Natural Polish for Every Skin Tone
You can't go wrong with a nude manicure on your wedding day. A natural-looking polish will flatter your hands without distracting from an embellished wedding dress or vibrant bouquet. What's the trick to finding the perfect nude hue? Start with your skin tone. Nude polish is no longer a one-shade-fits-all situation and there are lots of options out there. Below check out 12 of our faves in an array of shades—from ballet pink to peach and beige.
If you're fair, choose a polish with light blush tones to complement the pink and blue undertones in your skin. For an ultra-pretty look, go for a translucent pink hue with just a touch of shimmer.
