Nails of the Day: Dolce & Gabbana Nude and Chanel Golden Sand

Nails of the day are Dolce & Gabbana Nude Nail Polish ($20) on fingers and Chanel Golden Sand Nail Polish ($23) on the toes. Nice neutrals for summer for a subtle polished look without drawing too much attention. Sandals photographed are from J.Crew (currently on sale).

Dolce & Gabbana Nude is a nice neutral nude with slight peach tones. Probably easily dupeable in other lines – however I have a hard time finding a good nude for my skin. Most “nudes” turn pink or very greyish on my skin. I’ve previously featured and swatched it here. Chanel Golden Sand is a metallic warm gold. I believe it’s been discontinued and I don’t own any dupes but the color seems similar to various OPI and China Glaze shades I’ve seen swatched on other blogs.

    I know I'm late… I just found your post while searching for the perfect nude nail polish, and the D&G nude is it! I have very fair skin, and I think that most "nude" nail colors make my nails look dirty because they're a bit too dark for me. I like the look of a nude that's a bit lighter than the wearer's skin, so the D&G is perfect. You have one of the few swatches online, so I really appreciate your post. Thanks!
