25th & June "Skin Deep" Swatches & Review (partial)
25th & June recently released a collection of six nude nail polishes to compliment a wide variety of skin tones. About the collection, from the 25th & June website:
No matter how silky or how luxe, your skin tone is perfection. These shades are here to highlight your hue & compliment your glow.
I received three out of six shades to review for you all. They retail for $12 each, or as trios for $33, on the 25th & June website. Let's get into the swatches!
All photos in this post are taken under artificial light. All are topped with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat. These polishes were provided for my honest review.
Maker description: a milky nude with a very soft pink undertone. This shade goes on with full coverage and is the perfect go-to color for a nude, yet bold manicure.
3 coats + topcoat
My notes: I really loved this palette cleansing warm-toned nude. The formula was a little streaky on the first coat, better on the second and perfect on the third for smooth, even coverage. If I opt for a pale nude, I usually reach for a super pale grey or pink, but this is a nice alternative and one I plan to wear again.
Maker description: a striking medium nude with a peachy-golden undertone, and dries as a full coverage cream finish.
2 coats + topcoat
My notes: Great formula on this one. Just two creamy coats for solid coverage. Although the formula and color are nice, I didn't care for this one against my skin tone, which is pale with mostly pink undertones. It was a little too peachy for me, but I think it would look amazing against a darker skin tone.
Maker description: a warm, creamy beige with a tiny hint of peach.
2 coats + topcoat
My notes: Again, good formula on this one. Very creamy and easy to work with. This shade is fairly similar to Cinnamon Kiss, so I've included a comparison below, but Tan Lines is a touch darker and less peachy. Shockingly, I loved this on me and it was the closest match to the tone of my fingers, which I never expected from a shade named Tan Lines. (Ask anyone, I'm so pale I practically glow in the dark.) I love that this leans more neutral and not as peachy.
Comparison: Tan Lines vs. Cinnamon Kiss
Tan Lines is on all fingers except my ring finger, which features Cinnamon Kiss.
Do you have a favorite from these creamy nudes? Don't forget, if you don't see a shade here that appeals to you, there are three more to choose from in the full Skin Deep collection, which truly has something for everyone.
Thanks for reading!
