Consider nude nail polish the manicure world's greatest hitnext to sheer ballerina pinks and fire engine reds. But there's a difference between nude nails and naked nails. True nudes like Deborah Lippmann's Naked ($16; beauty.com
), Sephora by OPI's Neutral Beauty ($9.50; sephora.com
), and YSL's Beige Leger ($25; yslbeautyus.com
) elongate your fingers and look great on manicures of all lengths, while naked nails are just thatbare. Amp up the look with Chanel's Island ($26; chanel.com
), a sheer fawn with rose gold shimmer.
