PRODUCT BATTLE: the search for the perfect nude

You can't imagine how long I've been searching for the perfect nude nail polish. Just recently I was able to try out two polishes that might live up to my overly high expectations of perfection. I'm talking about the 'Satin Corset' (I <3 the name) polish from Sephora and the 'Nude' polish from Pieces.

What do expect from this perfect polish, you might wonder? I only expect the perfect brown nude color. Never thought it could be quite the challenge!







- Quality
Let's talk opacity. Satin Corset from Sephora takes more layers to get an opaque finish. The Pieces polish only takes two layers. I do feel like the Sephora one stays on longer without chipping. The Pieces polish chips more easily, but applies easily.

- Color
The Sephora polish is more brown. Maybe a bit too brown, since it's so nude, it's barely noticable. It makes my nails even look a bit deadly. The Pieces one, unexpectedly came out more pink than brown. Fail! So, conclusion?

Conclusion:
Neither of these polishes is actually the perfect nude I had been looking for. I'll have to continue my nail polish quest for the perfect nude!

Help me in my search and share what polish is your favorite nude color?

Xoxo,
Anine

  1. My favorite nude is probably O.P.I's Mimosas for Mr and Mrs :-) It's actually pink, and not nude, but it looks very natural.
