Deborah Lippmann Undressed Nail Polish Set*

Ok, so I know I just complained about how bad the weather has been in Edinburgh, but even though it is freezing cold, it is still the middle of April, and I am so in the mood to ditch my dark nail varnishes!

I feel like I’ve been wearing variations of black polish since about September, and even though I do love a dark mani (so sleek, so shiny) I’ve been really feeling the need to lighten up. So, I couldn’t resist when Deborah Lippmann’s Undressed Nail Polish Set arrived!

Containing six of the most beautiful nude shades, the set pretty much has every skin tone covered. If I’m going for a real ‘mannequin hands’ look, the two lightest shades are pretty much spot on. The darker tones look super sophisticated on short nails.

As much as I adore the colour selection, I just can’t get over how cute the bottles are! They’re mini versions of Deborah Lippman’s regular varnishes, and they are just the cutest, dinkiest little things!

Skin Deep is the richest of the six shades, and would be the perfect natural nail colour if you have darker skin. It’s a stunning chocolate-milk shade which feels so sophisticated to wear.

The formula is perfectly creamy, and almost opaque in a single coat. This feels like a new way for me to wear a neutral nail colour, and I’m sure it’s an absolute god-send if you’re looking for a deep-skin nude tone.

Described as a full-coverage almond nude, Natural Woman is the most beautiful tan shade.

Like all of the polishes, Natual Woman is a smooth full-coverage creamy formula, which needs just two coats to look beautifully shiny. I absolutely love wearing this when I’m wearing camel colours, it feels like an almost 1970’s chic take on nail colour

Bare it All is the polish I reached for first when the set arrived, as the warm mauve-nude shade is just so pretty and unusual.

It’s a beautifully toned-down way to wear pink nails, and it’s super work appropriate too! Again, creamy opaque coverage was achieved in two coats.

Born This Way is probably the brightest of the six polishes, and is a stunning peachy-apricot shade. It’s a really stunning choice to wear if your nails are looking or feeling a little dingy (mine sometimes do after wearing super dark polishes) as it’s just an easy neutral.

I was pleasantly surprised at how rich and opaque Born This Way, and I only needed two coats. Usually when I’m wearing colours like it I have to layer three or four coats, so two feels like an absolute breeze!

Totally Nude is the closest of the collection to my own skin tone, and it’s described as a fair pink nude. This has been the polish I reach for the most out of the six as it makes my fingers look super long and thin, and really, who doesn’t want that!?

I absolutely love wearing Totally Nude, as it really is just the perfect nude polish for my skin tone. It’s also a great choice if you’re travelling, as not only are Deborah Lippmann polishes wonderfully long-wearing, but chips, if they do appear, hardly show up with this polish.

Last up is Flesh for Fantasy, which is just the most heavenly alabaster nude shade. If you’re a super pale girl, this is going to be the nude polish for you! I absolutely adore how cool and creamy the shade is, and it just looks divine on short nails!

I don’t think I’ve got a shade quite like Flesh for Fantasy in my stash, and it feels like a perfect Springtime neutral. Even though it’s lighter than my skin tone, I just love the contrast, and I think it would look just incredible worn with a tan. It’s almost a take on a white manicure that way!

Deborah Lippmann’s Undressed Nail Varnish Set is priced at £27 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
