      Hi Helen! I’m so sorry about that! I’m redoing all the images on the blog so things are in a bit of disarray at the moment :( The nail colour you liked is an OPI Nail Lacquer, called “Bubble Bath”. It’s one of my favorite natural nail colors! It looks great on all skin tones and is a classic choice. I also updated the Buy Here link under the image for you. I hope this helps! Let me know if there is anything else I can do! :)

    Can you share tips how to apply nude nail polish colors? I’m having a hard time making them look nice, it’s like there are streaks.

    These are AWESOME! I would LOVE to see a shellac post as well since gel is everywhere now and is so popular! Still in search of my own favorite nude gel 🙂
