I'm In the Nude!

But only on my nails...
Ahh the ever elusive perfectly nude nail.
Not too pink. Not too peach. So hard to find!

Here are the contenders:

OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy
Essie Mademoiselle
OPI Samoan Sand

The Test:

OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy was the first up. Someone described it as the perfect nude, like a Louboutin nude pump. That was enough to get me intrigued and out I went to get one of my very own. Unfortunately it fell a bit short of my expectations. It was way too peach on me and not very flattering with my skin tone. (Looks better in the pics).

Essie Mademoiselle is a very sheer nude pink. Really pretty and flattering but not an opaque nude.
Two Coats Three coats

And the winner is... OPI Samoan Sand!

This lovely shade is the perfect Louboutinesque nude that I've been looking for! I may have to submit this to alllacqueredup for the mannequin hands segment.

What is your favorite nude??
