Get Anne Hathaway's Oscars Nail Polish Look for Less

Nude nails, from peachy to putty, are definitely a big nail polish trend for Spring 2011.

Anne Hathaway got a head start on this perennial classic, donning Deborah Lippmann's "Naked" clean bare beige polish for the Oscars. Matched all 8 outfit changes beautifully!

Compelled as I often am by random nail polish shades that I see on celebs, I mustered up the courage to check out the discount beauty store that's in the same strip mall as the grocery store where I usually do my shopping, and I lucked out with an amazing nude polish called Taupe Extreme by Nicka K. Cosmetics (toluene, formaldehyde and DBP free, too!). Cost: $1.00! Check it out:

As much as I love brights, I can see myself falling in love with this nude polish over and over again. Two coats and I was done. Love that it's not sheer.

Are you feeling spring's nude nail polish trend?

LOVE THE NUDE! Where can you go wrong with this?

Hi, where did you buy the polish from? I checked the site, but there doesn't seem to be a way to buy online.

I bought it at a store called Discount Beauty Supply, I'm not sure if this chain is everywhere - you could try Sally Beauty Supply stores too. The Nicka K Cosmetics website isn't very helpful, but you could try filling out their contact form:

Thanks BB. My search for the perfect nude shade of polish is eternal - this is a great pick. I'm with you - bright shades are exciting and fun but the right nude shade (that may last a week) goes with everything and looks polished. amazing how many shades there are and how different they look on your nails. This one is a keeper!
