Not to be taken lightly, the universal ‘nude’ trend has stuck around for good reason. From nude fashion to nude phone cases to nude lipsticks to nude nails -- this trend truly has no limits! ‘Nude’ can mean different variations of beige, pink, or brown; the beautiful thing about going nude is that you can cater it to any skin tone. A shade that might be nude for you could be different for your BFF, making the definition of ‘nude’ endlessly dynamic. We’re combining multiple nude tones to create sleek, subtle dimension that’s perfect for complimenting fall makeup and fall fashion, utilizing our 10-FREE polish trio of Truffle, Velouria, and Pinkerton.

The Accent Stripe: Easy Nude Nails Design #1

What I love about this look is that it doesn’t have to be done perfectly, and it will still be eye-catching. This is my go-to nail design because it doesn’t require any tape or extra tools and the result has an artistic pop.- Lindsey, Marketing Content Specialist

Step 1: Apply Accent Nail Base

Start by choosing your ‘accent stripe’ nails; we chose index, ring, and pinky fingers. Apply a single layer of Pinkerton to each clean, dry nail.

Step 2
Step 2: Apply Solid Color

While your accent nail base dries, apply first coat of Velouria to all other nails.

Step 3
Step 3: Apply Accent Nail Stripe

Aiming at the center of the nail, start just above cuticle and swipe Truffle upwards to the end of nail. Repeat as needed until you get the thickness of stripe desired; we swiped our brush twice.

PRO TIP: for a more precise accent stripe, first wipe excess polish from brush on the mouth of polish bottle. This will prevent too much polish from loading onto your nail, and you can build to achieve desired size and opacity.
Step 4
Step 4: Apply 2nd Coat of Solid Color

Apply 2nd coat of Velouria to non-accent nails.

Step 5
Step 5: Apply Top Coat

After all nails are dry, apply our Glass Top Coat for a glossy finish that keeps your design protected for longer!

The Bobby Pin Polka Dot: Easy Nude Nails Design #2

I love this nude nails look because I don’t have to worry about polish dripping down the brush when I apply the polka dots; all I need is a bobby pin! I always have at least 10 floating around my purse, so this is a super easy nail design for me to pull off.- Sandy, Supply Chain Specialist

Step 1: Apply Base Color

Apply single coat of Truffle nail polish to all nails.

Step 2
Step 2: Apply Base Color (2nd Coat)

After first coat has dried, apply second coat of Truffle nail polish.

Step 3
Step 3: Apply Accent Color #1

Now that your base color is down, time to adding polka dots! Pick one color to start; we poured a small puddle of Pinkerton straight from the bottle onto a paper plate. Using a bobby pin (make sure your bobby pin has rounded ends), dip rounded tip into polish. Start dotting on alternating fingers, with as many dots as you desire!

Step 4
Step 4: Apply Accent Color #2

On the fingers you skipped with the Pinkerton polka dots, use the same bobby pin method from Step 3 with Velouria.

Step 5
Step 5: Apply Top Coat

After all nails are dry, apply our Glass Top Coat for a glossy finish that keeps your design protected for longer!

The No-Rules Color Swap: Easy Nude Nails Design #3

To amp up a basic nail look, I used all three nude polishes. I didn’t play by any rules when choosing what color to apply to what finger, so the finished look is fun and cute, but still classy.- Pancy, Lead Designer

Step 1: Apply Color #1

Apply your first coat of color to one finger of your choice; we started with a single coat of Truffle on our ring finger. As the darkest shade, we like this as an accent color to create a pop of interest on just one finger.

Step 2: Apply Color #2

Apply your first coat of color #2 to two fingers of your choice; we applied a single coat of Pinkerton to both thumb and middle fingers.

Step 3: Apply Color #3

Apply your first coat of color #3 to two remaining fingers; we applied a single coat of Velouria to our index and pinky fingers.

Step 4: Apply 2nd Coats

Apply 2nd coat of all colors to corresponding fingers.

Step 5: Apply Top Coat

After all nails are dry, apply our Glass Top Coat for a glossy finish that keeps your design protected for longer!
