You can’t go wrong with neutral nail polish. In fact, some of our personal favorites are taupey nude, beige nude, pinky nude and nude nude. That said, we want you to find your best nude, too! Here, we’ve rounded up four nude nail polish shades by essie to complement every skin tone.


Fair Skin Tones

For fair skin tones, go for a pinkish-nude nail polish with a sheer finish. This natural shade works with your undertones and gives your nails a fresh hint of color—like glowing skin, but for your nail beds!

Medium Skin Tones

Complement medium skin tones with with a soft taupe or beige shade. It looks fresh, clean and polished against your skin and gives fingers an elongated effect. So go on, stack those dainty midi rings to your heart’s content.
