Bare Naked Nails: The Nude Brigade

Even though I love colorful nails all year round, I’m taking a break this spring to wear more subdued nude shades on my digits. The barely-there polish look was huge on spring 2012 runways. Case in point: models at Marc by Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Giorgio Armani all wore shades of nude. Lucky for me a new polish just landed on my desk and it’s perfect for going bare.

USLU Airlines is a German line of polishes, newly launched in the U.S., and named entirely after airports from around the world. Although some of the colors are named after well-known locations (JFK, CDG, etc), many are from far-flung destinations, including my new nude, ROR. (It stands for Roman Tmetuchl International Airport in Palau, which is a Pacific island nation located 500 miles east of the Philippines!)

The ROR hue is slightly darker than the neutrals shown on the runway, which works for me since I find that shades which are too pale wash me out. Not only do these polishes have me craving a little vacation time, they’re keeping my nails trendy and chip free. You can find the USLU collection here or a special edition polish in minibars at the Ace Hotel, conveniently called ACE.
