NOTD – China Glaze “Nude”…bare but there nails

It’s nice to go natural with my nails once in awhile.  Didn’t expect to end up finding a very nice fleshtone nail shade while I had a manicure done last week at Tinette.  It was the first time I found a kind of shade like that that was exact.

What I detest about my nails is the very high nail line, I’d much rather have my nail growth begin nearer the edge of my fingertip.  When I need a safe color to wear in case of any sudden events like weddings, China Glaze “Nude” will most certainly do.  What you’re seeing is two coats finished off by an Orly Top to Bottom base and topcoat.  If you’re like me, a medium yellowish Asian in terms of color, you know that you should choose a natural shade that matches you accordingly and remember that you’re not pale and cool toned enough to use what Kate, or now properly Catherine, used at her wedding, here’s the scoop on what she wore at this link  🙂  This is what China Glaze nude looks like in the bottle.

Funny this is actually a photo of China Glaze “Sunset Sail” but the difference between NUDE and this in bottle appearance is almost negligible so I adjusted the color of the image to how I remember China Glaze Nude.  You can trust my eyes, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts.  I don’t own a bottle of this, I tried it on at Tinette & Co. San Antonio Plaza.  Tips & Toes sell China Glaze polish so maybe you can check them out.  The branches of Tips & Toes I’m aware of are in Greenbelt, San Antonio Plaza Forbes, and Westgate Alabang.  China Glaze polishes range from PHp250++ to about Php350++ depending if they’re on sale or not.

  • i absolutely love this color!!

  • Love this polish on you! I’ve been on a natural kick myself. I’ve been drooling over OPI’s Femme de Cirque collection but I don’t think it’s available here. I love Bobbie’s Fave Bikini but i just can’t put it on my nails. Formula was horrible. (Weird since I have other Bobbie polishes and they were very easy to work with.) After those 2 failed addictions, I bought myself some Wet N’ Wild polishes in Watson’s and I’m finally happy. Got the shades 2% Milk, Private Viewing, and Sugarcoat to make up for that.
