The perfect nude! This is going to sound like nothing special (indeed it looks like nothing special in the bottle), but it totally. It just makes my nails look so done and classy. I have super pale skin, with kind of pinkish fingertips. My nails are far from perfect, so most polishes really just call attention to my short, ridged nails, raggedy cuticles and pudgy fingers. Not this! My nails …Read more

I hated this at first. It's horribly unflattering on my nails - I'm tan/olive complected. However, I just used this on a pedicure on top of Chinchilly and it's gorgeous. It made the grey slightly lighter and iridescent. Will layer on other colors going forward. I imagine this would look great on other cool-toned polishes.

This is a very slightly rose-tinted beige sheer with a soft, pearly iridescent finish. I'm not the biggest fan of nudes or of sheers, to be honest, but I quite like this and it looks very nice on my pale, cool-toned complexion. It's neither too yellow nor too pink, nor is it too "milky", and the pearly iridescent finish gives it an attractive lift to keep it from looking like …Read more

I never thought there was such a thing as a universal "Your Nails But Better" polish but I have been proven wrong by Au Natural (I'm an NW46-47 in Mac and an Almond 7 in Bobbi Brown for shade reference). It really lives up to its name. You really have to have this on your nails to really see its beauty come through. In the bottle, it looks like a beige polish with that faint frost …Read more

great nude/ mannequin hands shade for my fair, cool/neutral tone. this color is a slightly rosy beige and more opaque than I would have imagined given its name and the reviews. Easy application, tough to screw up given the color. My bottle is slightly goopy, but I think this is an old or discontinued color (picked it up at ULTA recently, but it's in the old Essie bottle). I love essie …Read more

Absolutely love this colour. However in order to appreciate this colour, many many layers needed to be applied!
It's like my nails, but better with a pearl sheen.

I expected great things of this polish but once it was on it was just kind of blah. Normally I love 'barely there' type colours so. Maybe it shouldn't be used straight after a colour like 'Wicked':)!. Took it off after two days as just felt so beige. Will no doubt try it again. Hopefully I will grow fonder with further use.

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous polish! Very sheer, milky beige-taupe that goes on completely streak free and gives you that perfect "my nails but better" look. Drying time is excellent, as is wear time. From a distance, it gives the impression that your nails are simply shiny and healthy, not obviously polished.

I'd recommend this highly for interviews, as well as for …

It is a very sheer slightly milky beige with a great shine. Makes your nails look well cared for. It spreads beautifully without any streaks. It dries fairly quickly too. Overall I am happy to use it as a nude but it is a bit too boring for me to buy again...

Word of caution: it looks horrible on a french mani, on top of white tips. Makes the white tip look dirtly and old. I had to …

By far my favorite nail polish. It's my go to interview nail color. When ever I don't know what to do, this is the shade for me. I'm light skinned so this is very natural for me, on darker ladies it would be a nice slight pop of nude. I love it so much.
