Nude polishes are so far from my thing it’s hard to believe I purchased this polish! But, I really wanted a nude polish to wear with all the lovely neon polishes that are out for the summer. I quickly figured out that I didn’t have a single creme nude that worked with my skintone in my stash. Crazy!
Originally released as part of the 2011 French Affair collection, Topless & Barefoot has become sort of a cult favorite. Several of y’all recommended this polish when I asked for a good, cool toned nude polish. I’m glad I followed the recommendations!
Topless & Barefoot is a cool toned beige creme. The pink undertones are subtle but there. This looks great with my very cool (aka very pink) skintone. I have a hard time finding nudes that work on me. Even neutral nudes that are tan/brown look terrible on me so I was excited to find a nude polish that worked!
The formula is fine. It’s not great as I did need three coats to get an opaque, streak free finish. But it wasn’t runny or difficult to work with.
I’m so glad to have this polish! Everyone needs a perfect nude polish in their collection. And even though nude polishes aren’t my thing AT ALL I kind of liked it……
As always, there are swatches under the jump!
