Meet The Mylee Send Nudes Nail Polish Collection

We LOVE natural-looking and nude nails. If you need something a bit more subtle because you can't have wild colours on your nails for work, or if you want a nice neutral base for any nail art then the Send Nudes collection is for you. 

The whole Mylee 'Send Nudes' collection was created to compliment a wide range of skin tones. Our Mylee team and audience are diverse and it was essential for us to create nudes that suit everyone. That's why we also got our Mylee brand ambassadors and wider Mylee team to help us pick shades that suited everyone.  

In this post, we'll walk you through how to pick your ideal nude from our latest collection, which includes nudes for every skin tone. Our nude polishes provide great coverage to leave your nails looking fabulous, and all of our nail polishes are vegan and officially cruelty-free.

Of course, these are just suggestions and obviously no matter your skin tone you're welcome to wear any shade of colour you like! Nude never felt so good.

How to Choose a Perfect Nude Polish That Matches Your Skin Tone

Finding the perfect nude shade for your skin and nail colour is notoriously tricky, and it has long since been debated. It often comes down to personal preference. Some people would argue that your perfect nude is a shade on either side of your skin tone. Others think that you need to match your skin tone or the colour of your nail beds. 

That being said, there are some tips that you can use to help you. Firstly, you need to know your skin's undertones which could be cool, neutral or warm. Cool undertones pair better with pinky beige, dusky pink or peachy shades. Warm undertones look better with warmer colours that have orange or rosy undertones. Neutral undertones should seek out cooler shades with purple or blue undertones.
