Sometimes You Just Feel Like Going Nude

Purchased by Me

Today, I have a few nude polish swatches to show you.  But first, a warning.  In preparation for today's post, I decided to Google "nude polish."  Little did I know, Google does not differentiate between "polish" and "Polish".  So here's your Google search lesson for the day:  when searching for nude polish swatches, it helps to be very specific in your search terms.  And even then, be aware of anyone standing behind you when you press enter!  ;)

Onto the swatches.  I actually don't have many nudes in my collection, which surprised me a little.  I guess I need to do something about that.  However, I do have a few and I swatched them for you.

First up, ASP Golden Opportunity.  ASP Soak Off Gel is a new addition to the SOG offerings available at Sally Beauty Supply.  They had some nice color offerings, but I resisted the urge to buy them all and picked up just one to test out.  It applied quite nicely.  I haven't tested the wear yet, but I will soon.  This one is extremely hard to photograph.  The base is a pinkish nude but it is loaded with golden shimmer.

The next nude on my list is Gelish Forever Beauty.  I have a fair number of Gelish polishes in my collection, but you likely won't see many of them swatched on this blog.  It's not that I have anything against Gelish.  It's simply that I have so many other brands and polishes to share and Andrea at Chickettes has covered Gelish beautifully!  With that said, Forever Beauty is a peach toned nude cream

My final nude swatch for today is OPI GelColor Bubble Bath.  Bubble Bath is the color I chose for my first Soak Off Gel experience and is the reason I got hooked.  It's such a soft, gorgeous pinkish nude.

  1. Your Forever Beauty looks completely different from mine. Mine is a little sheer and has a shimmer finish.

    1. Really? Mine is definitely an opaque cream. I pulled it from a swap box a while back and was a little surprised by it. I was expecting more of a natural tone.

    2. Andrea, I just looked up your swatch. I like your version better! Maybe its a difference between the full size and the mini?

    3. I know this is an old thread, but in looking at both of your swatches, do you feel that having real/acrylic nails makes a difference in how the colors show up, etc? Just curious!! Thanks! xoxo

    4. Jeanette, I think acrylic nails could cause colors to show differently since the natural nail is not likely to be the same color as the acrylic powder. Colors will appear different on people with different skin tones as well. But I din't think the difference in Forever Beauty can be attributed to that. Andrea and I both have natural nails and I believe similar skin tones.
