This upcoming fall season we may bare a little more skin than we’re used to. Continuing with summer’s crop-top craze, fall foot fashion calls for booties with tasteful cutouts. But what toenail polish to pair with your fashion-forward peep-toe boots? For a professional look, it’s always better to go with something in the nude family for toes. Check out this list of the best muted toenail polishes form Essie and Sinfulcolors!
Best Pale Pink: Ballet Slippers
Pale pink can be tricky because you are looking for the perfect mix of nude meets soft peony pink. This Ballet Slippers color by Essie nails the look. It is just bright enough to contrast your freshly tanned toes from summer and will continue to brighten up your feet once the tan is gone. It is also just thick enough to be opaque, which looks fabulous on toes.
Pinks are also popping up all over the fashion scene for Fall 2013 so, this way you can stay on trend starting form the ground up!
Best Nude: Topless & Barefoot
I love this nude because it also has the slightest pink undertone that brightens up your nails while keeping the color unmistakably nude. This way, your polish will stand out and not completely disappear into your skin tone, as most nudes tend to do.
With these pale colors, it is all about finding that shade that will highlight your toes. We’re looking for opaque not sheer for your feet.
Best Subtle Color: Mint Candy Apple
This minty fresh shade actually comes off more of a baby blue after a couple coats. It is the perfect go-to if you want a subtle pop of unexpected color while keeping a professional tone.
They may be known for their brilliant neon hues but they have developed some lovely light colors as well just in time for fall.
Best Pale Pink: Yours Truly
This polish is part of the new SinfulShine collection that dried with a super high gloss sheen. Yours Truly is more on the dusty rose side of pinks so you have to be careful that is does not blend with your skin tone. It is great for the fall after you’ve lost your summer tan and you want a slightly more noticeable pink hue.
Best Nude: I’m Blushing
Without the pink undertones of Essie’s Topless& Barefoot, this shade is all-natural nude that gives off a lighter shade for optimal subtly. If you want to brighten it up even more, try using a white as a base coat.
Best Subtle Color: Rendevous
Again we are going with a green meets blue theme for the pop of color. This color is a nice muted green that becomes much like a neutral for fall. What I like best about the hue is that it will go perfectly with a stylin’ black or brown cutout bootie.
OPI also has a whole collection devoted to pale hues called “Soft Shades.”
Pretty much any color on this pallet would be a lovely addition to your pale toenail polish collection. You can even mix and match them on your hands to set off your toe color.
