It seems this spring nude shades are in. I consider this a boring trend. There are just too many sheer nudes out there. And a sheer nude is just doubly boring. But there are also some interesting opaque nudes. I’ve selected a few of them for you.
Essie – Nude Attitude is an odd shade and it reminds me of egg sauce. At first I didn’t know what to think about this shade. Is it odd or do I love it? Finally I decided, that I love it! It just goes well with my skin tone. It is delicate to wear and probably better suited for people with warmer skin tones.
Rescue Beauty Lounge – Opaque Nude is truly opaque. This one in comparison to Nude Attitude is more greyish and the finish is totally different. RBL has almost chalky finish. It’s a true creme. No jelly in sight.
I played a bit and added one coat of Essie’s Trumpet. That’s how it turned out.
China Glaze – Heirloom Organza is not a proper nude shade. At least not for me or for my skin tone. It is light brown creme. At first I didn’t like it. But it grew on me and now I’m fond of it. It is such a strange color and that’s why I like it as much as I do!
For the end I’d like to add, that it is really difficult to find a great opaque nude shade that would suit a particular skin tone. I didn’t look for a perfect nude shade for me yet, but Nude Attitude did surprise me in a positive way.
How do you think about nude shades? Do you like them? Do you like them to be sheer or opaque?
