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 actually look done and improved. So how to describe? It's an opaque beige with subtle rose hue, the finish is quite shiny, no matte, no glitters, definitely not metallic, a hint of iridescence. One coat of polish is totally transparent, two gives a magical My Nails But Better look. I use a base and top coat. Unlike most Essie polishes, this applies like a dream. Super hard to mess up, which is really saying something considering I am pretty bad at doing my own nails. I use the SH Insta Dri Top Coat (red bottle) for a perfect, goof proof finish. This is probably most flattering on super pales struggling with ruddy fingertips (yeah, I never thought ruddy finger tips were a thing until I started taking my nail game seriously, but the struggle is real). It will add a nice pop and finished look to darker skin tones. I do believe this is universally flattering. Definitely you can't go wrong in a professional or job interview setting wearing this. I will never go around with naked fingers or toes again. Will certainly repurchase.
