If you’re anything like us, influenced by the ebbs and flows of what’s hot in nail fashion right now, you’re probably tired from trying to keep up with the trends. In these situations where you (and your nails) need a breather, you cannot go wrong with a timeless, pale-pink, nail polish.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favorite luxury, light-pink polishes and nail-care products made for when you desperately need to hop off the nail trend-chasing bandwagon.
Likened to be the ‘no-makeup makeup’ of nails, Essie’s pale pinkish-white polish – aptly named Ballet Slippers, manages to pull off a barely-there pink veil of color that conceals nail imperfections and flatters your nails, while remaining sheer.
And besides, its soft hue means that it’s as low maintenance as it gets: unless people are looking closely (creepy!) at your fingernails, they wouldn’t be able to tell when they start to chip.
If you’re looking for a muted, frosted light pink that goes well with any outfit, while not detracting attention from it, Zoya’s Caresse should be your top choice.
With its microscopic silver shimmer and pearly sheen, people will undoubtedly wonder if those genuinely are your real nails. You don’t have to give up your secret if you don’t want to! Be prepared to pull compliments from all directions with this gorgeous color.
A beautiful, creamy ballet pink, Smith & Cult’s Pillow Pie is the sweetest soft baby pink that goes with anything. This much-coveted, semi-sheer pink polish is specially formulated to be chip-resistant, so your nails can constantly look like they’ve just been painted, for longer.
Designed to give you flawlessly smooth coverage, you’ll never find yourself tossing the bottle away in frustration and anger because of unsightly, streaky application.
Fail to provide your nails with the necessary care, and – just like skin, they’ll start showing signs of age. We think you’ll agree with us: there’s nothing cute about weakened, brittle, and peeling nails. For a hardworking, nail-strengthening product that will bring your nails back to life, look no further than Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat.
In addition to helping fortify your nails, it also includes an optical brightener that filters out any yellow appearance, so your nails look healthier – instantly.
If you have wrecked-looking, uneven, ridge-y nails, you’d know that no lacquer is going to last long on your nails. Well, meet Butter London’s Priming Basecoat. Much like how a primer would smooth out your face, this basecoat fills in ridges to create a silky-smooth surface primed for polish.
And best of all? It’s tinted, so it also helps disguise whatever imperfections you have going on with your nails. Yes – that means you can wear it out on its own!
To further extend the life of your manicure, you cannot afford to skip out on the application of a topcoat. And if you’re looking for one that will instantly make your polish smoother, shinier, and healthier-looking, there’s no better option than Londontown’s Genius Top Coat.
Upon application, it cures and hardens to act as an invisible shield that protects your polish from chipping and dulling – giving you long-lasting brilliance and shine. Now, who doesn’t want that?
