This one was so tricky for me. Not because I don't like nudes (I do!) but because I have yet to find my perfect nude. One of these days I'll have an epic Essie splurge and just wade through a bunch until I find my winner, but right now I have lots I like, but few that stand above the rest. My current favourite is actually a combo - Essie Brooch the subject with Illamasqua Spartan - but I thought it would be kind of cheating to choose a combo for this purpose.
So here's Samoan sand, which is the one I usually reach for. It's a good match for my skin, non-streaky, and it looks good with one, two or three coats (this is three). Dries quickly and is very shiny. It's sort of winner by default. But it is, to be honest, a bit boring. I tend to prefer opaque colours with something more about them.
Any suggestions for great edgy nudes for my skin tone?
