Nude nail polishes have been all the rage for some time now, but, personally they’ve never been my thing. While I want to like them, they always fall short of my expectations of a cool and classy mani and leave my hands looking a tad lacklustre. That’s not to say I don’t like them, when I see them on others I do. I really do! Which makes it all the more annoying when I can’t seem to nail (sorry), the right shade myself.
So, imagine my surprise when a pretty pale polish landed on my desk that I fell head over heels in love with. The object of my adoration is Dolce & Gabbana’s The Nail Lacquer in Pure Nude, £20, and boy oh boy am I obsessed. This nail polish is a revelation, a magical nude dream that somehow suits every skin tone, and one that doesn’t look the least bit dull or plain. It goes with everything I’ve ever owned, and I imagine everything I’ll ever buy. The delicate neutral somehow brightens my nails and the glossy long-wear formula lasts an entire week without chipping. As a self confessed nail polish junkie, it’s got my seal of approval and I’ll be singing and dancing about it for weeks to come.
