Let’s Get Nude For The Summer


It’s still summertime and it’s time to get nude! And by nude…we’re talking about your nails. Going neutral this summer is big this year, as opposed to the poppy, vibrant colors that we related to the warm season in the past. We’ve highlighted our favorite three collections of neutral nudes to meet any budget.

Nails Inc Gel Effect ($15)
Nails Inc cleverly offers up some fun nude colors for summer in their Gel Effect line. From Colville Mews (light taupe) to Mayfair Lane (pale pink), you’ll quickly become addicted to this line. The polish goes on solid and bold, very similar to a gel manicure, but without the UV setting lights or that acetone-soaked cotton-in-foil removal method. The formula is made with their Plasticiser Technology and contains flower extracts to help condition and strengthen nails.

NCLA Nudes Collection ($75 for the set)
From a pale taupe to a dark brown, NCLA has a gorgeous nude collection to suit any skin tone. This luxury nail lacquer brand is called “5 Free” because it’s free of DBP, toulene, formaldehyde, camphor and not tested on animals, making it perfect for anyone who has skin sensitivities.

Nuance Salma Hayek ($5.99)
Who better to follow for grace and beauty than Salma Hayek and with her beautiful line of nail lacquers? We were hooked from the beginning. Sold exclusively at CVS, this summer you can find the perfect neutral shade from Bare Kiss (light pink) to Desert Mist (rich taupe). And as a bonus - you’ll find Borage Seed Oil in this formula, which nourishes nails and makes them shiny.
