Low maintenance, the nude manicure is made for the minimalist. It never goes out of style and it looks great against your diamond ring. It’s a classic go-to because of the neutral colour. Figuring out what works with your skin tone may take a bit of experimentation, but generally choosing from beiges, pinks, and oats should provide a solid option.
