Neutral Nails

Tuesday, 22 March 2016


Over the years, I've managed to collect a rainbow of nail polishes. As much as I love to bring out the flashy reds and and sparkling blues, I've come to realise that not all of the shades in my collection are appropriate for all occasions. Having attended two or three job interviews over the last month, I took a dig through my collection to bring out the most neutral, yet still beautiful, polishes that I could find. If you're headed for an interview yourself or you're not a fan of eccentric colours, here are the four polishes that you need in your life:

L'OrĂ©al Paris 'Versailles Gold' is a gorgeous, shimmering gold. Edging more on the rose gold side of the spectrum, it definitely counts as a neutral colour. It's not overly bold yet still brings that little bit of glam to your hands. I have paired this polish with two of my navy dresses and it has looked fab every time.

Essie Cocktail Bling is an everyday blue shade that will complement any outfit. If you want your nails to look professional and don't want to go down the gold/pink path, this is the shade for you. Like all Essie nail polishes, it has incredible lasting ability that'll leave you chip free (and, by extension, worry free).

Barry M Speed Dry 'Pit Stop' is a difficult colour to pinpoint. It is either a grey-toned purple or a purple-toned grey but, either way, it's a beautiful and safe option. Barry M's Speed Dry polishes are some of my all time favourite with their fantastic application and lasting ability, and so I would definitely give this one a shot.

Essie 'Tea & Crumpets' is the perfect 'your-nails-but-better' shade. If you're like me and hate to showcase bare nails, definitely reach for this polish next time you pass an Essie stand in Boots. It has a slight shimmer of gold running through it too, bringing out any gold detailing within your outfit beautifully.

Which are your favourite neutral polishes? Have you tried any of these shades? Leave me a comment!
