Love of Nudes
There is nothing like a fresh manicure. I love the feeling of looking down at your hands and they look so ladylike and delicate from freshly painted nails. I usually splurge and allow myself a nail salon visit but when the bank account is not agreeing, I turn to my not so professional nail painting ritual to get the look I’m wanting. Of course there is a lot more time spent and my nails don’t nearly look half as good but I’m saving some money and allowing myself that little me time that is necessary in ones life.
I associate freshly painted paws with feminine and timeless women plus I just love the way my manly hands transform into delicate little flowers once I put rings and nail polish on. Nude nails are so timeless, chic, and effortless, it makes the hands look lengthened, feminine, and all over clean. It’s also a plus because it’s harder to notice when it starts chipping, which is one of my biggest pet peeves. So I’m going to break it down for all you ladies and/or gentlemen that are looking for the best nudes. Mind you, it has taken ages with trial and error to find these perfect shades.
