the only thing i have that's even remotely close is zoya in buffy. i'm not sure if it's summer nude or winter nude or what. it's a pinkish champagne color. i didn't like ot before, but i'm actually kind of liking it now.

Buffy! I always want Buffy to be a deep, vampy red. But she wore colors like that allll the damn time, so it's appropriate I suppose.

Huh, I thought there was a Cordelia at some point but I guess I was wrong.

If the Buffy names were intentional, I feel like Angel would have to be some kind of crushed velvet finish polish.

I will forever be disappointed that my (and esme's) namesake Zoya is the most boring color imaginable. And I like boring nail polish.

there's a charisma, i think. so i always figured if i was going to go for angel, i'd pick up that one, too. as it is, i have buffy, willow, and faith and i basically hate buffy and willow. it makes me sad.

I'll have to see what I've got for nudes...I'm thinking I have a champagne-y one somewhere.

Butternut I love those rainbow colours and M'toes that's super rad. Kitteh yours is epic as always, I really wanted to attempt something like that but I wussed out!.

Here's mine, I used Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, NYX Pastel Pistachio, Barry M Turquoise (which doesn't really work here, I think I need the blue ice cream variation from barry M!), Beauty UK Soft Lilac and Orly Lemonade.

I have absolutely nothing that could even be considered close to a nude so I'm out this week!

Well, since bluedawg mentioned she'll be wearing nudes next week for her vacation, how about warm nudes? I say warm so we can use 'cool nudes' in the winter. Summery nudes? I'm immediately thinking of this:

I thought I hated all nude nail colors but WOW, that is gorgeous.

It is, the next closest thing I have is Foie Gras from the same collection which is a dark brownish-taupe, which someone much darker could pull of as a nude but not I.

Although I will say that Fask Track is much darker, but still pretty, when you're not in direct sunlight.

P.S. I know that in makeup and pantyhose 'nude' really means 'flesh colored if you're white but not pasty white' but that is dumb.

I bought a WnW I think is right but I don't have a lot of nudes either and I'm not even totally sure what a warm nude is.

OPI Sun Streaked, which is pretty gold in direct sunlight, but sheer and nude-ish in indirect light.

I guess I should've said 'warm neutrals' instead of nudes because that's really what I meant anyway. I hope you guys appreciate that I google image searched 'warm nudes' even though I knew what I was going to see to find an example:

As someone who has had to google image search "cutoff corks" (without the filter)(apparently it's a trucking device) and "frostbite" for work - I really do appreciate and commiserate with your effort here.

as someone who is forever wearing navy blues, deep purples, and other vampy type colors, i had forgotten how much i really love neutrals! i went FOREVER between my four potentials (one on each finger, staring at them) before i could finally decide. my options were BL yummy mummy, BL all hail mcqueen (LOVE), zoya pasha, and zoya pandora. i ended up going with a full mani/pedi in zoya pasha:

zoya pasha by vegan.chai, on Flickr

and then i'll probably switch to one of the others on my fingers next week to coordinate.

I am wearing BL All Hail the Queen. I'm not going to post a picture because my hands are in full blown claw mode and it's just not pretty. But I do really love this color even though I'm not a fan of neutral polishes in general. It's just so sparkly!

The one thing I really like about neutrals that are close to my skin color is that if it's kind of messy, you can't really tell. Because I am lazy and it is my eczema's most favorite time of the year to ruin my hands.

I'm also sporting All Hail the Queen. I almost wore Champers but the formula on All Hail the Queen is just so easy to get looking nice.

I decided to join in! I put on Illumasqua Bacterium which I bought purely for the name. It is kind of a golden warm neutral.

Are All Hail the Queen and All Hail McQueen the same color?

Yep! I think the "McQueen" is an ode to Lee McQueen.
