The nude manicure has made quite a splash in the fashion, celebrity and real worlds recently and it's a nail art trend that's set to continue well into 2014 if the autumn/winter 2013-2013 catwalks are anything to go by.
The answer: Neutral shades are versatile!
A nude nail polish is more wearable than a bright green one as it will go with more outfits and be better suited to more formal occasions (not that we don't LOVE bright nail polish but there are both appropriate and inappropriate times and places for it.) Nude is also a colour that helps to make nails appear longer, due to the fact that it half camouflages them next to the rest of the finger.
So, a nude manicure is to the nail polish collection what the little black dress is to the wardrobe: a chic failsafe!
Will you be trying it out sometime soon?
