NOTD: Close, but Not Quite

I'm in search for the perfect nude shade of polish for my nails. I've just begun my search so I haven't really collected a lot yet. Remember my post on  Caronia's Touch of Tan? I said in that post that I found that shade to be a bit darker than my 'ideal' nude shade and that I'd look for something just a bit lighter. 

Here's a lighter one... also from Caronia.


Nails of the day with Caronia nail polish in Touch of Beige.


This shade is indeed lighter than Touch of Tan but I think it's a little too beige to be a nude shade for me. Just a little. Yeah, I am OC like that!


I like how it looks under certain kinds of lighting, though.
 

Application is ok - not too great but not too bad either. I had to apply three coats to make the bubbles that appear after application less obvious. And yes, I did make sure to dry each layer before applying another. 

Here's how it  looks beside Touch of Tan.

L-R: Touch of Beige, Touch of Tan
Touch of Beige. Hmmm... it's not quite what I was aiming for but it's really, really, really close. Now I'm looking for something in between these two shades.


And that's it for my nails this week. Too beige or not, I still think nude shades look very elegant on the nails!

What's your favorite nude nail polish? :)
