Nail Polish In Cocoa Cabana, £16 | Nailberry

Recommended By: Juanita Huber-Millet, Founder & Creative Director of Townhouse

“Soft beige and caramel hues are stunning on medium skin tones, and I love these vegan-friendly Nailberry shades. Rich taupe and greyish browns are also good on darker skin tones to give that classic understated look – for this ‘Cocoa Cabana’ is a great option.”

Nail Polish In Turks & Caicos Beach Nude, £8 | Nails Inc

Recommended By: Megan Evans

“This shade has a fairly brown undertone – rather than pink or cream like most nude nail polishes – which is why it suits deeper skin tones better. I’d recommend wearing it as a sheer layer for best results.”

Nail Polish In Samoan Sand, £14.90 | OPI

Recommended By: Iram Shelton

“This solid, opaque colour is neither too pink or brown and looks beautiful on a range of nail shapes and lengths.”

Available at Boots.com

Gemini Nail Polish In French Créme, £12 | BioSculpture

Recommended By: Sarah Falshaw

“A beautiful soft milky shade, this BioSculpture polish has cream undertones that are so flattering on deeper skin tones. It can be worn sheer with just one coat or you can build it up a bit for a full coverage look.”

Gel Couture In Of Corset, £14.95 | Essie

Recommended By: Georgia Rae

“I love how sheer this goes on and how it lets your natural skin tone show through. It has more of a beige undertone to it, as opposed to pink or white, which I find works so well. Alternatively, you could always layer a few colours together to create a bespoke shade that works for your skin tone.”

Vinylux In Backyard Nuptials, £11.95 | CND

Recommended By: The Daily Nail

“As a soft cream shade with a pink hue, this is a great option if you want to layer up to find the right depth of colour for you. I love that this balances cool with warm tones.”

Nail Polish In Bare My Soul, £11.92 (was £14.90) | OPI

Recommended By: Saskia Fenwick

To nail the ‘clean girl aesthetic’, make this your go-to. It’s not too pink, nor too peach toned and is slightly sheer for a really pretty, natural look. Finish with OPI Infinite Shine Top Coat for a healthy, glossy finish.
