Nail(ed) It

This manicure gets five stars in my book — the nail shape and polish color are perfection. I’m already an oval gal, so this is not far from that. But I’d love suggestions on a pale, not-too-pink polish that goes on in one coat — a tall order.

  • I like ballet slippers by Essie.
    My all time favorite was like linen by the same brand, but I believe it has been discontinued

    LauraApril 6th, 2019  8:11 AM

     
  • Essie’s Mademoiselle or SpaghettiStrap, but you need two coats.

    JackieApril 6th, 2019  8:28 AM

     
  • Essie’s Waltz has been my go-to

    PrestonApril 6th, 2019  8:58 AM

     
  • Christian Dior’s nail glow

    ClaireApril 6th, 2019  9:13 AM

     
  • I second Laura’s rec of Essie’s Ballet Slippers. It’s what I’m currently wearing in the no-chip version.

    KimApril 6th, 2019  9:16 AM

     
  • Essie’s Allure or Lakur / London Town’s Cheerio all the way for me!

  • OPI Gel Color called Let Me Bayou A Drink is the best!

    KimberlyApril 6th, 2019  9:49 AM

     
  • Essie has a new line of gel-like polishes. Your manicure will last at least 8 days and comes off with regular remover. It looks like a regular Essie bottle, but twisted. Fairy Tailor is a sheer pink and Dress is More is a little more white and not quite as sheer ( but still sheer). Do not use base coat, and use the matching top coat.

  • Chanel Blanc White.

    SuWuApril 6th, 2019  10:49 AM

     
  • I second that…Chanel Blanc white.
    Two coats fingers….three toes

    SusanApril 6th, 2019  11:05 AM

     
  • I use Kure polish in Beige Milk or Clean.

    RTGApril 6th, 2019  11:06 AM

     
  • I love Oribe Royal Blush. Not too pink, and covers nicely in one coat over a base coat. It has a bit of a peachy tint, and looks a little like a gel polish even though it isn’t. I wear it all the time. It’s the perfect nails done but not obvious manicure.

    SharonApril 6th, 2019  11:49 AM

     
  • Diorlisse Abricot in Snow Pink. Easy, clean, pretty look.

    MichelleApril 6th, 2019  11:53 AM

     
  • I’m addicted to the brand Kure , in the color French Nude. It’s a clean product from French Nude.

  • It’s funny how the fashion for different nail shapes change. I’ve had gels for years, this time of year wear OPI ballet slippers with a coat of funny bunny (sheer white) over top.

  • I just had my nails done today with Olive & June Eva Polish. It’s a new company with polish free from certain chemicals. I love the look of this polish…it’s sheer, like a milky light pink. I had it done, but I could put it on myself.

  • Chanel Blanc White – it’s very sheer, not ‘white’

    KellyApril 6th, 2019  11:20 PM

     
  • I’ve been wearing Deborah Lippmann Baby Love for years. It’s the perfect sheer pinky nude shade . When I’m pale in the winter, I wear Essie Lollipop on my toes but when I have a little tan, Deborah Lippmann Naked is a good neutral shade since it’s more opaque than Baby Love.

  • The right shade of polish to give you a ‘your nails only better’ look is tricky! What looks good is based on your skin tone, I think. My favorite is Chanel Ballerina.
