Clinique Nail Polish 8 Shades of Beige

Me ’n neutrals haven’t really been friends for a long time. I think I must be an odd colour or something. Most beige polishes make my hands look gross. Clinique might be a game changer…

Clinique Nail Polish Nude Room Service

Clinique nail polish nude: Room Service Lookit that neutral! Normally I hate being able to see through my polish but for some unknown reason, this off-white barely beige totally appeals to me. I can’t explain it. I just like it.

Clinique Nail Polish Nude Birthday Suit

Clinique nail polish nude: Birthday SuitThis is exactly what I think your perfect shade of nude should look like. It should be subtle and not stand out against your skin. It should look like calm sophistication. Birthday Suit. Yes. Perfect shade of beige for me.

Clinique Nail Polish Nude Pajama Party

Clinique nail polish nude: Pajama Party Pajama party is perhaps a little too peachy for my skin tone but perhaps not a little too peachy for yours? (it sorta bugs me that pajama is spelled without a y – the y is the best part of pyjamas)

Clinique Nail Polish Nude Tickle Me

Clinique nail polish nude: Tickle Me Add a little cappuccino and this shade ends up being just a couple shades too dark for me. Maybe if I put something over it…

Clinique Nail Polish Nude Tickle Me w Matte Top Coat

Clinique nail polish nude: Tickle Me + Nicole by OPI Matte Top Coat. Interesting. Whatchu think about that?

Clinique Nail Polish Nude Do Not Disturb

Clinique nail polish nude: Do Not Disturb Oh! Another shade of beige I'm digging! I didn’t think it was possible to find more than one but I can totally wear that and wear it well.

Now that you’ve been introduced to the limited-edition beige Clinique A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins (gee, could their name be any longer?), does it have you thinking about nailing beige in the near future? Of the eight available shades ($14 each), I’ll betcha there’s one there that’s the perfect sophisticated nude neutral for your skin tone.

P.S. Shorter nails pull off nudes far better than talons do. I dunno why but there you are.

Clinique nail polish -- aka Clinique A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins -- is available at Clinique counters nationwide and online at And hey! These eight beige nail polishes are half of Clinique's 16 Shades of Beige Collection; the other eight beige shades come in a neutral palette of eyeshadow.
