Give me your recs, ladies! :smile: I am leaning towards Essie just because there is a sale this week at my local drug store, but do try to sway me if OPI or another brand is better ;) I'm looking for nude nails (no pinkish tones) and dramatic white tips, and had Essie's Mademoiselle and Marshmallow in mind.

Thanks ladies!

Same here with Elmel!!! alpine snow/bubble bath! or sometimes I use samoan sand. So pretty!
Bubble bath is more pink, while samoan sand is more nude. HTH!

I used to do OPI's Bubble Bath with an off white tip. I had a mani with Samoa Sand and an off white tip recently, and liked that combo a lot!
