Skin toned nails have featured highly on Spring Summer catwalks and red carpets, from London Fashion Week to the Oscars. My favourite nude nail of the moment is Dior Safari Beige. Despite the name, I find this quite a warm nude shade, which I think would flatter a lot of skintones and look equally well on palest winter or sunkissed skin. As I didn’t have an Oscar or couture dress to hand, I have accessorised with my wedding pearls!
Safari Beige has my favourite wide brush for ease of application and took three coats for opacity, though looking at these pics it may have improved with four.
The shade is rather like a warmed up version of OPI Tickle my France-y. It’s equally chic and in my opinion, rather elegant. It makes my hands look groomed and polished without screaming for attention.
Rather like the leg lengthening effect of nude shoes, nude nailpolish adds length and elegance to the fingers.
A quick edit to add some daylight pics of this shade, as all of the above were taken using flash on a dark day…
The shot on the right is the most colour true - it’s not really what I’d call beige, more almond toned, a bit like my foundation really - but still very lovely! And wearing pretty well don’t you think, considering this is day three? (though I did have Orly Polishield on top).
Dior Safari Beige RRP £17
