Twinsie Tuesday: Nude Polish

Today's Twinsie Tuesday post is: nude polish.


Sorry for the last post, my son has had a pretty grumpy morning. 

Well, to be honest I only own 1 nude polish (to me it's nude) and I don't really like it. I haven't decided yet if it's the nude that I don't like or the formula. Let me know what you think. 


Sorry, not a lot of sunshine here today. Anywho, this is Essie Topless and Barefoot. 3 nice coats and I feel like it was still a little streaky. I actually bought this on a whim just to try out Essie polishes, and I think it's the Essie that I really don't like. The formula is poo, and the brush is too short for my preference. That's the reason why I have decided to put it in my blog sale. After application, I did some research and apparently the hype about this polish when it was first released were that it was an opaque polish. What happened to mine? Anywho, I feel like this color just doesn't sit well against my skin tone. Topless and Barefoot is a putty beige shade that has a slightly pink undertone and this it just does not compliment my skin. However, for others I think this can be a real gem.

So what do you think of T&B? Do you like your Essie polishes?

  4. I looove nudes, but nude creams can sometimes look thick or streaky on the nail... Have you tried a nude with just a hint of shimmer? Not so much that it is frosty, though! I've had good luck with some of the nudes/ pale greiges in the Pixel line of mini polishes. They carry them at Ulta. Too bad about this formula, I think the shade looks nice on you!

    1. I keep forgetting to pick up some Pixel polishes and I was just there the other day! Darn! Are there any you recommend though?

  5. I know what you mean about Essie polishes. I stick to the darker ones, I find they are more opaque. Most of them seem runny to me though.

  8. I actually think the color looks quite nice on you but sounds like the formula isn't worth the trouble. :(

  9. This does looks pretty on you, but I completely understand what you are saying about the formula. I find Essie formulas to be hit and miss, but their nude/pastel formulas may be some of the worst. I have a few very light Essies that are streaky even with three coats. No thanks lol
