China Glaze Great Barrier Beige is a great nude for me. It's not too brown or too white and has the perfect amount of pink. The best part is I only need two coats. These photos are after a day of wear.
The one downside to short nails (besides not being able to scratch my head with any satisfaction) is that polish shows wear quicker. I decided to stamp a fishnet pattern over it using Konad stamp M57 and black polish.
