The quest for the perfect nude nail polish can last a lifetime: you want one that isn’t too pink, but not too beige, isn’t too sheer but isn’t frosted either.

Enter Essie’s Topless & Barefoot. An opaque nude polish with subtle grey undertones, it’s classic, clean and ideal for every day (without looking remotely bridal).

But don’t take our word for it: Pinterest has just announced that the Essie shade is the most shared nail polish on Pinterest, ever. In fact, its popularity has increased by 765 per cent since this time last year.

In Australia, you can find the popular polish at Adore Beauty for $18.95 a pop.
