Top 10 taupe and chocolate nail shades
Bright, colourful nails are simply beautiful. This is true. But there’s just something striking about a taupe or chocolate bronze digit. Yes, they’re somewhat neutral, but neutral doesn’t mean boring. It actually means classic, timeless, and wearable.
But which shades of taupe, bronze, mocha and chocolate are truly worthy of your manicure time? We believe these 10 nail lacquers are definitely up there with the best of the best…
#10: ORLY Nail Lacquer in Country Club Khaki
This goes-with-absolute-everything light taupe hue is a must have shade, especially for those venturing into the world of bronze and chocolate shades. Love the rubberised lip for easy opening, too.
#9: Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish in Taupe Classy
Not only is this lacquer the perfect shade of grey-based taupe, it also only requires one coat and one minute to dry. Yep, no more annoying smudges or downtime while you’re waiting for your polish to dry.
#8: Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in Fall Mood
Every girl needs a good neutral-coloured metallic polish in her kit, and this one is definitely a favourite. Wonderfully shimmery without being tacky or over the top, it also stays put on your digits for days and days.
#7: piCture pOlish Nail Polish in Malt Teaser
Sounds good enough to eat, right? This nail polish reminds us of delicious chocolate, but doesn’t come with any unwanted calories, so don’t be afraid to lick your digits if you so feel the need. (If you do, don’t stress – all lacquers in the piCture pOlish family are free of nasty chemicals and artificial fragrances.)
#6: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Freckle
Well, isn’t this fun? Unique in many ways, this speckled taupe nail varnish not only looks like outstanding nail art (but without any of the fuss!), it’s also chip-resistant as well. Love it!
#5: Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in Hot Coco
The perfect chocolate hue, this amazing autumn/winter hue makes a statement without clashing with, well, anything. Oh, and we can’t boast about the glossy finish enough – it’s outstanding.
#4: Polished London Nail Enamel in Milky Mocha
A little more cocoa than it is chocolate, this hue instantly eases you into the dark nail hue trend. One coat will give you great coverage, as the silicone in this enamel formula stops its from streaking when applied.
#3: Avon Nailwear Pro Nail Enamel in Deluxe Chocolate
bh’s Diana is obsessed with Avon Nailwear Pro. OBSESSED. And rightly so, the formula lasts on the nail for days (seriously), and its flat brush makes application easy. In fact, there’s a high chance this metallic chocolate hue is on her digits right now…
#2: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Bittersweet
As someone who paints outside the lines oh-so-easily when giving myself a manicure, I can’t look past Sally Hansen’s amazing foolproof wide brushes. The result? No mess or fuss when I’m applying this amazing mauve-like chocolate hue, which is perfect for a slightly-out-of-the-ordinary everyday colour.
#1: OPI Nail Lacquer in What Wizardry Is This?
This magical taupe hue is from OPI’s new Oz, The Great And Powerful collection, and we’re a little bit obsessed with its textured matte sheen. (OK, a lot obsessed…) Some would say it’s simply magical, but I say it’s just downright awesome.
