if you're like me (the deliberate, ruminating sort of shopper) then you'll likely have had just as tough a time finding the PERFECT nude nail colour. Man, it's hard to do. Why? Because it's akin to finding the right foundation shade - it needs to be the perfect colour match AND have the right finish.
Well, I think I've found the solution for people whose skin tone is neutral and light - not porcelain - we're talking like a mac NW20, make up forever HD 115, DiorSkin Nude 020, L'oreal True Match N2 kind of colour. About the second lightest shade for stuff at the drugstore. Sally Hansen offers a line called "complete salon manicure" and the shade 220 Cafe au Lait is a pretty damn good nude for skin tones similar to mine.
Here is the product:

Now, in terms of formula I can't say a whole lot. Mainly because I'm not a nail care expert, nor have I finished this product. That being said, the word on the street is that this line of polishes is excellent - one of the best you'll find at the drugstore.
More nail shots!
A final question - if any of you know of a good nail strengthener for peeling, weak (but not brittle, really) nails LET ME KNOW in the comments. As we can all clearly see, my nails are short and sad :(
