Editor Obsession: Pretty in Pale
When it comes to nail colour, we’re stocking up on neutral hues of pink and beige.
Subtle and sophisticated, neutral nails feel remarkably fresh after a season of dark-and-stormy shades. The colours I love right now range from the sheerest pink to an opaque mauve.
Yves Saint Laurent’s La Laque Couture collection includes two rosy hues—Rose Romantique and Beige Leger—that have me smitten with pale pink. Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Nail Lacquer French Nudes Collection by Tom Pecheux offers hues that are designed to work with individual skin tones and come with coquettish names such as Nudite and Diabolique.
Rounding out my top picks of chic neutral lacquers are Tom Ford’s cream-tinted Naked shade and the blush-coloured Mink Brule. Admit it—the names are half the fun, non?
