Wanna Look Chic? Try Taupe Nail Polish!

Why do we love Taupes?
What is so cool about this grayish-brown
brownish-gray color that has no generally accepted definition?

Magic behind Taupe is that the color itself is so different.
 Taupe is a perfect nude partner and compliments every skin tone.
Looks very classy and chic.

Brownish Taupes from my stash
Left to right: 
OPI You Don't Know Jacques!, Milani Teddy Bare, Claire's Nr 130 (creme finish),
ORLY Night Owl, China Glaze Cords & Ingrid (shimmery finish)

OPI You Don't Know Jacques! (Fall 2008, La Collection Da France) - 
the darkest in the list, around $6 per bottle (Ebay, lookfanastic)

Milani Teddy Bare (Bare Collection), dupe for Chanel's Particuliere-
$4.99 from Cherry Culture

Claire's Nr 130, has subtle silver shimmer,
 around $4 per bottle at Claire's
(bought my baby in Moscow's Claire's store)

ORLY Night Owl (Fall 2011, Birds of Feather)-
so shimmery and so pretty!
$4.25-$6.00 (Ebay, Head2ToeBeauty, Trans Design)

China Glaze Cords (Fall 2009, Retro Diva), pretty rainbow shimmer
and China Glaze Ingrid (Fall 2010, Vintage Vixen) with golden flecks,

Milani, Claire's and Orly taupes provide the best coverage,
however none of the rest causes any troubles with application.
