Found! The nude nail polish that won't give you mannequin hands!

I love the look of nude nail polish but all the shades I've tried so far have given me mannequin hands!  What exactly are mannequin hands? These! See how the nails and hand are all the same colour, yep,  kinda creepy really.

But luckily Essie's Spin The Bottle from the Spring Hide & Go Chic 2014 Collection is different enough to give me the look of clean, classic looking nails without the dreaded mannequin effect. It's a creamy beige that's a dream to apply. I'm wearing 3 coats in these pics, no top coat. They key to avoiding the doll-like hands look is to look for a shade either lighter or darker than your natural skin tone.

What's your favourite nude polish to wear? Have you tried this one?


  1. This polish is actually so pretty! I love how it has a slight peachy tone. I really like how glossy it is too without a top coat!

  3. Such a pretty shade! It seems to have a bit of peach in it which I love! Definitely not going to give you mannequin hands! I am adding this to my list to buy for sure!

  4. I have it and I love it! Perfect nude shade for pale skintones :)

  5. Its such a beautiful shade Lilit, loved it. Looks so lovely on you. I like nude shades, they look so chic, but, they don't look good against my skin tone :(

  6. Haha, love the pic of the mannequin hand! This shade looks fab on you, Lilit! x

  7. I'm not really a fan of nude shades for the same reason, but this colour is so pretty, very feminine - I'll have to check it out!

  8. This has a lovely finish to it. I can't wear nudes at all, I'm too pale unfortunately :(
