Wheel X4: Skin Tone Cremes

Just a quickie today for Nail Wheel Wednesday, as I had a meeting over lunch that and that's when I usually finish up my posts. (Yesterday's planned post also got pushed aside for work stuff.) This wheel is a range of skin tone colors. Some of these I bought when I was searching for my mannequin hands shade, but obviously not all of them, since many are way darker than I've ever been even when I was a misguided youth trying to get tan by laying out in the sun all summer long.

1. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Without a Stitch (3 coats)
2. Revlon Sheer Nude (3)
3. OPI unknown mini (3)
4. OPI Samoan Sand (3)
5. OPI Samoan Sand (3) [this is the black label; my bottle of it is a lot more sheer than my newer green label shown in #4]
6. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Malt (2)
7. s-he 204 (2)
8. Sally Hansen New Lengths Cameo Creme (2)
9. Maybelline Great Finish Almost Nude (3)
10. Sally Hansen Beyond Perfect Sheer Nude (3)
11. Milani Truth or Bare (3)
12. Chelly 111 (3)
13. GOSH Miss Sweety (3)
14. L'Oreal Almondine (3)
15. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Chocolatte (2)

  1. You might be able o find out the names of the OPI mini and Sephora by OPI mini by typing the number on the bottom into google. OPIs numbers usually start with NL... or HL... Just in case they haven't rubbed off :)

    1. Tinka, I'm sorry to say the numbers on these aren't all legible. I know the OPI ends in 05 and the SOPI in 42 but didn't have the patience to try and figure them out on Google from just that.

  2. I don't think I have *quite* as many nudes but I do have quite a few too in the search for my perfect nude.

    It's interesting to see the fairly significant difference in the black to green label of the OPI.

    1. mrsrexy, I was surprised by that--not sure if my old bottle is just not aging gracefully or what.

  3. Karen, I love these nudes or skintone cremes. There's always room for nudes when I'm not in the mood for color :)

  4. Happy New Year Karen. I don't have a lot of nude shades but your collection is really nice. My favourite nude is gosh groovy grey.

  5. Nudes are one of my favorite polish colors! I've been buying them like crazy lately!

  6. Nudes/skin tone polishes look terrible on me - even if I love to se them on others - a beautiful collection...

  7. And I thought I had too many nudes! I feel relieved now ;)

  8. I love these types of shades so much, but they don't always look great on me.

  9. What a great post! I tend to choose the colors, but when I think chic, we must have nude.Loved GOSH Miss Sweety

  10. Oh wow. That is definitely an impressive range! I don't think I'd have near enough of these to fill up a whole nail wheel. O_o Amazing!

  11. Wow, great post! It's hard to tell what a nude color will really look like from just looking at the bottle, so this is really helpful! thanks.


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
