Neutral nail polish

I really like the look of neutral nail polish colors on my nails.  In the summer I do like color, and I may not be correct but I don't match whats on my nails with my toes.  Below are my favorite neutral nail colors.  If you know any other good ones please share :)

Here is how I do my nails.  I actually paint them every Monday, and usually touch up for the weekends as needed.  When I get out of the shower I remove my old nail polish. I do not dry my hair first, I put my make up on.  Before I start my makeup I paint my nails.  I usually only use one heavy coat and that is it.  About half way through my makeup I put on the top coat.  By the time I am done with my makeup my nails are dry.  I very rarely have any smudges while I do this. 

Essie (Target, Ulta, Walgreens) 8.00
1. Sand Tropez: soft sandy beige
I think this one will look great in the summer with a tan

2. Au Natural: a sheer neutral sandy beige
I love this one all by itself.  It has a nice finish instead of just clear top coat by itself.

3. Ballet Slippers: classic pale pink with a sheer finish.

I have recently started purchasing some of the Butter nail polishes.  I have liked them, but they are kinda pricey for nail polish

1. All Hail the Queen (14.00).  I get mine from Ulta:  It's a holographic beige.  Which means it has some shimmer with it. I have loved this one for fall, and can't wait to see what it looks like for spring and summer.

2.Yummy Mummy:  a medium beige color.  This one doesn't have shimmer in it

Favorite Top Coat:
Sally Hansen: 30 Second Top Coat (4.50): Target, Walmart, Ulta, Walgreens, Etc
This truly dries in 30 seconds.

30 Second Top Coat

Let me know your loves.  There are some really pretty colors coming out this spring I can't wait to try on my toes.  Love the corals.
