How To Find the Perfect Shade of Nude Polish for Your Nails
For the most perfect nude nail designs, start with your skin tone. You have to find the shade that flatters your complexion.
Girls with pale skin should wear a nude that has a hint of pink while those with an olive complexion should stick with nude shades that have warm undertones that mimic your own.
Choosing a shade that reflects your natural skin tone best creates clean-looking nails; you can choose a shade lighter for a delicate look, or something slightly darker for a high fashion twist.
If you’re looking for a fresh new nude nail look, it’s time to find some inspiration with these cute nude nail design ideas. Enjoy.

NOTE: What Are Chrome Nails?
Chrome nails are a metallic, high-polish style of manicure that allows you to get any kind of high shine on your nails depending on what powder you use and how you apply: from a holographic to a mirrored effect.
Usually, instead of traditional metallic nail polish, you can achieve the chrome effect by using a regular base nail polish in your preferred color with a chrome powder applied to them.
Powders can be applied gently with a sponge applicator, whereas you can do some looks by simply dunking the entire nail in the powder.
From this layering process, you are able to achieve a finish that almost looks like a 3D reflection of light.
Chrome nails are glamorous, smoother than glitter, and even more sparkly than metallic polish.
