natural nail polish

So, this year is going to be hard for me. I am normally someone who changes her nail polish every week, and has a box full of dark colors for fall and winter. However, in my nursing program, part of the dress code says that we can only wear light and natural colors. Ugh. I have about one natural, light color in my box (Essie Ballet Slippers, which I do love). I tried to just go without nail polish for the first couple weeks, but I just can't do it! I need the polish. So now I need everyone's recs for their fave natural color nail polishes! Here are some ones that I'm loving right now:

(Essie has SO many good choices!!)

What are your favorites?


  1. ahhh putting a limit on nail polish colors only makes you want to wear the ones you can't! I don't know if you can wear greys or taupes, but those make me feel like I have on something darker even though it is a neutral!


  2. At least you can wear light colors! My program wouldn't let us wear any nail polish! I seriously died! Loving all these colors though!

  3. Ahhh but light colors are so pretty, so at least thats something!

  4. check out target for the sinful colors brand. they're $2.99 and actually stayed on longer than my essie!

  5. Aw it'll be worth it in the end! Plus I am totally into nude polish, that color from Deborah Lippman is amazing!



  6. OPI's Bubble Bath is a great neutral option! I did that quite a bit last summer, and it's currently on my nails now!

  7. Julep is my fav! Love all the different colors.

  8. Great choices!! My sisters in nursing and they can't have any at all! I think I would die :) She says its not so bad hehe and you will have a great degree in the end!


  9. This used to be the rule when I danced! Essie has so many great neutrals!

  10. Essie is my absolute favorite! That first color is so perfect for fall, I may have to snag it next time I'm at the store!

  11. I am such a nail polish fiend, I don't know what I would do if I could only wear light colors! I actually love your picks. One of my favorites is Essie's Fiji. Such a beautiful, light pink color!

  12. I love Essie's Marshmallow as well!!

    Hope you'll enter my L'Occitane giveaway:

  13. Ah that's a pain. But on the bright side, they are still letting you wear it. All of these polishes are so pretty. Essie makes SO many nice neutrals. My favorite is "bbf best boyfriend". If I'm not mistaken, Nordstrom still sells it.

  16. Ahhh loving all of these colors!!!


  17. I must admit...I'm more of a neutral girl when it comes to nail polish. Love the Julep Florence and the Essie Topless and Barefoot!

  18. whaaaat, why would the color matter?! that's surprising. i don't really go for soft shades either, but im always a fan of pink :)
