Essie BBF Best Boyfriend (dumb name) has been my go-to sheer for around the past 9 months or so. Most of my sheer polishes either seem to pale down my nails and give that milky white look, or they are quite pink and make my nails look candy-coated. There is a time and place for those looks, certainly (see some of the OPI NYC Ballet polishes), but I have always wanted a sheer polish that wasn't too pink, not too pale, and this is it! Rather than being super pink, it's more fleshy/mauve, and I think this is the key.
Why am I being so picky? I could just wear a clear polish right? Meh. The bonus of this kind of polish is that it blurs all the yucky parts of my nails and makes everything look more put together. Clear wouldn't hide a darn thing, and I have things to hide! It's like tinted moisturizer I suppose - doesn't cover everything, but the overall picture is much more even.
What's your fav polish for perfecting your natural nails?
