A very modern and posh choice for the warmer months if you ask me.
L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish Never Lacque-ing
The application is a bit tricky as it goes on quite streaky.
I wouldn't be quick to judge that L'Oreal Never Lacque-ing is a bad one, though.
I've had my share of experimenting with different nail polishes, but I have yet to find a pale color with an opaque creme finish that is streak-free. This tends to be the case with opaque pastels, too. Any polish with lots of white pigments thrown in, actually.
There is a distinct difference in finish when it comes to an opaque nude polish like this compared to a similar color with creme-gel consistency. Both are beautiful in my view as they are two favorite polish types of mine, but the difference is worth going through the trouble if you're a little nuts about nail polishes like me. If you don't feel that passionate about it, just roll with a sheer color and layer it. Life is easier that way. ;)
Here are some of my choices for opaque nudes.
Essie Topless & Barefoot
L'Oreal Never Lacque-ing
Essie Ballet Slippers
Topless & Barefoot is more of a pure beige with sandy undertones, which actually is my all time favorite color for toes.
Ballet Slippers is a classic example of uptown chic.
All of them are super streaky, yet super mod and worth it, in my humble opinion.
The trick with a streaky polish is to "let go".
The first coat is always streaky with these. Just relax your strokes and put the polish gently on rather than brushing back and forth trying to smooth it out. The second coat and a fast drying top coat will most likely take care of this problem.
I personally don't believe in wearing a polish with 3 coats even if it is a sheerest color. It just seems to kill the beauty of the nail polish regardless of the finish, although this would be a personal preference.
Have you tried these polishes?
