I've got pretty pale skin and as a result, tend to shy away from wearing really light shades of nail polish. One of the neutral shades that has made it into my collection though, is the Opi Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? from the Spring 2012 Holland collection. I was lucky enough to bag this from Fragrance Direct for just £3.99!
It's described in so many different ways.... putty, taupe, beige, cream, mushroom, cafe au lait, ecru etc etc. But, however you describe it, I love it! A classic and elegant shade that goes with anything with the added bonus of not making my skin appear dirty or washed out either!
Two coats plus a top coat (I used Nails Inc Kensington Caviar) gives it a healthy sheen and helps ensure the colour stays put.
So ladies, if you wanna go nude, go Dutch!
