I Found the Perfect Nude Nail Polish for Brown Girls and It's Only $8 USD

This week’s “Editor’s Pick” is a fall gem.

The fall season calls for nude and earthy nail polish tones. I’ve officially retired the pastel shades for a more subtle hue that I constantly get compliments on. For black women it can be difficult to find flattering skin tone products in the modern beauty market. Thanks to the Fenty Beauty Effect, brands have begun to produce makeup and other items that fit a wider range of people.

My current go-to nude shade is a secret I hold dear to my heart. After some aggressive requests from my friends, I have finally decided to let the cat of out of the bag. Mented Cosmetics‘ “Yes We Tan” is my go-to polish for Fall 2018. The vegan formula is long lasting and easy to apply.

WHAT IS IT: Mented Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in “Yes We Tan”

WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: After rocking white nail polish all summer long, it was time for a change. Mented Cosmetics’ nail lacquer arrives in three nude shades that fit women of varying skin tones. “Yes We Tan” is the perfect everyday nude that lasts through my dish and hair washing sessions without chipping. The pigment is opaque and I find I don’t have to apply multiple coats to get the color to show. High quality brown-toned nail polishes are hard to come by, and Mented Cosmetics sweetens, the deal setting their nail polish at a $8 USD retail price. It’s safe to say I’ve stocked up on a few already.

As we transition into the colder months, I plan to try out the “Brown & Bougie” shade which would match perfectly with Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip Paint in “UNVEIL.” This nail color and brand has become a beauty holy grail for me.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Mented Cosmetics’ Nail Lacquer is available at Mented Cosmetics for $8 USD.
