The week of nudes – day 4 – compare me

Hello everyone,

I told you I would compare some of my nude polishes. These three are the ones that looked most alike and since especially Ciaté is a bit more on the pricey side, I thought it might be interesting to see if there are cheaper polishes that look almost the same.

Here are the polishes:

Ciaté PP107 pocket money



Maybelline Color Show 015 nude skin

Maybellin Color Show - 015 Nude skin (unsicher)

Maybelline Color Show Stripped Nudes 227 In your flesh

Maybelline Color Show Stripped Nudes - 227 In your flesh


I placed the polishes next to the nail I applied them on. From left to right, ring finger to pointy finger.




In this picture you can see the difference very clearly. Left you can see Color Show 015 nude skin, in the middle Ciaté’s PP107 pocket money and on the right you can see Stripped Nudes 227 In your flesh.


I was hoping to show an alternative to the expensive Ciaté polish but sadly all three nudes are pretty different.
I think the perfect match depends on you personal taste and also skin tone. I like all of these but I think the Ciaté polish matches me best. I will still wear the others though^^

The reason why I did not include my new Stripped Nudes polish ( 25 Bare it all) is simply because it is much lighter then the others. I thought it did not make much sense to compare it with the others^^.

Also I hope this post was helpful for you, even if it did not show an alternative to pocket money.

Which one is your favorite?
Let me know.



The week of nudes – day 3 – Maybelline Color Show – Stripped Nudes

Hello everyone,

today I want to show you Maybelline’s Stripped Nudes.
And again, since when are nudes glittery or shimmery?
I always thought nudes were plain and simple.

Anyway, the first of four is 225 bare it all. The Picture is separate from the others, because I just bought this polish today. The others I bought a while ago….so that is the reason why the other three are in one picture^^







The other three are from left to right 227 In your flesh, 228 Tan Lines and 229 Bronze me up.

I can honestly say I like all of these. The shimmery one might need 3 coats, but still it is a great color. I liked the result. And the last one might be a bit difficult to handle, since the glitter is very big and therefor makes the polish pretty “gluey” how I like to call it, but I guess with a bit of patience you will get there….the application and good result I mean.

The polishes were all 1,95 euro. Come on, that is a great price for good polishes.
So if you see them somewhere, go ahead and grab them…grab all of them if you are like myself and you like beige/brown polishes and some shimmer/glitter.

How do you like them?
