Chanel has an extensive collection of beige polishes in a range of tones. Shades #505 Particuliere and #525 Quartz are darker pebble-like shades with hints of grey and purple. Chanel's #503, Inattendu, is a tan with more yellow and orange hues. Chanel cosmetics are available at department stores, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Macy's, as well as online at Chanel.com. La Vernis polishes come with a fairly hefty $25 price tag, but they are long-lasting and of the highest quality.
With hundreds of beige shades available from Essie, it is hard to decide which ones are the best. One standout is called Imported Bubbly, which is described as a "luxurious golden beige." It has light metallic tones that make it ideal for a night out. Another metallicized beige is called Buy Me A Cameo, which has silver and purple hues. Last, but certainly not least, is Mucho Dinero, which is a classic nude beige. Essie nail polish is available from Essie.com, as well as a huge range of independent retailers, like Target, CVS, and Bed Bath and Beyond. Prices vary, but Essie colors typically retail for $8-9.
Leotard Optional, from the Urban Ballerina collection, is a darker beige color that "reflects the neutral tones of a city landscape". Reviewers on Sephora.com say that this polish has great coverage and can be worn with just one coat for a gentler shade, or two or more for a deeper beige. If you want a lighter color, try what is called Going Nude, Eh?. This milky shade is on-trend, giving your nails a "clean", matte look. The nail polishes in the Sephora by O.P.I. collection are designed to be long-lasting and chip-free. They are made of green ingredients and cost $9.50. The varnishes can be purchased in stores or online.
