Peach Fuzz: the nail colour we’re peachy keen for in 2024

Peach fuzz no longer lives on your face…

Content Producer / January 25 2024

2024 is finally here, bringing with it a whole new Pantone colour to shake up our beauty games. ICYMI, 2024 is bringing Peach Fuzz, described as a “velvety gentle peach tone” by the Pantone Color Institute™. This soft tone is the perfect hybrid shade to take us from the likes of Hailey Bieber’s nude nails to transition us into more bold autumnal colours as we make our way through the year. Although the warmth this peachy tone gives off may just become your staple, year-round colour! 

So, it’s time to scrub your glittering, a(although save the inspo for the next glitzy occasion) and check out these simplistic nods to ‘Peach Fuzz’...

OPI Infinite Shine in ‘Sanding in Stilettos’

from $23.95 at Myer

OPI knows nails. There’s no denying that when it comes to a lick of glossy polish OPI is the most likely pick. Why have we flocked to this cult-classic brand? Probably because of the universal tick of approval it’s gotten from nail artists (aren’t the walls of bottles just the most satisfying things to look at?). While there are literally hundreds of shades to choose from, our Peach Fuzz pick is ‘Standing in Stilettos’. Because we’re not quite ready to let the holiday fun go, we’ll be easing our way into the summer colours with this shimmering pearlescent peach. The formula simply applies like a polish, but once dried leaves your nails with a gel-like protection. Did someone say long-lasting shimmer?

Key features:

11 days of wear with ProStay Technology 
Gel-like finish 
No UV necessary

Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in ‘333 - Rivage’ 

from $44 at Adore Beauty

We love a product that can do more than one task. And really is it a big task to ask for? Luckily for us, Dior is fully on board the multi-functional train, infusing each of their polishes with nail-loving (and ultra-nourishing) floral extracts, protecting your nails while you wear the classic couture colours. But as if that’s not enough already, Dior further enhanced their formulas with extracts of peony and pistachio, giving the polish an epic hyper-pigmentation shine. The Peach Fuzz tone from Dior? ‘Rivage’ can only be described as a glowing sparkling glimpse of warmth with golden flecks throughout the peachy polish.

Sienna Nail Polish in ‘Carnation’

from $28 at Flora and Fauna

Aussie brand Sienna has consciously decided to make all their products with the environment front-of-mind. This plant-based, cruelty-free and vegan formulation is made totally sans nasties, so you know you’re only doing the best for your body. Lovingly and ethically made in France, the formulation is water-permeable allowing the polish to give your nails a chance to breathe. Sienna was even the first nail polish to be created with no nano-particles! Sienna’s ‘Carnation’ is the truest match to Pantones 2024 colour; if we didn’t know better we’d say it was made specifically to match the warm, fun tone. The soft peach is an elegant addition to our latest love of all things peach.

Chanel Le Vernis in ‘929- Pastel Sand’

from $43 at David Jones

If the awards shows (and red carpets) have taught us anything, it’s that A-listers love a Chanel mani. From Barbie herself Margot Robbie at the Golden Globes to superstar Suki Waterhouse at the Emmys, Chanel is Hollywood’s go-to pick for an elegant nail look. Formulated with naturally-derived camellia eco-ceramides (a Chanel exclusive) and ultra-concentrated pigments, this polish will leave you with a long-lasting mani. If protected, glossy sheen is the accessory your hands have been waiting for, then introduce them to ‘Pastel Sand’, the ever-so-slightly brighter version of Peach Fuzz (don’t tell on us). The pinky-peach has an ever-so-slight golden glimmer that will leave your nails catching everyone's attention. 

Key features:

Highly concentrated pigment 
Eco-ceramide infused

Revlon Ultra HD Snap!™ Nail Enamel in ‘Keep Cool’

from $13.95 at Priceline

If you’re anything like us, painting your nails always ends in a mental breakdown. You think you’ve waited long enough between the base coat and the first lick of colour but nope, something goes wrong. You somehow manage to correct it, just to smudge it after what felt like several days of waiting for it dry. Well, your solution no longer has to be to fork out the big bucks for a salon mani to save the smudge. Revlon have cleverly created a formula that dries in just sixty seconds! The clever colours even serve as a stand-alone; gone are the days of needing a base and top coat! Not to mention it’s a vegan formula that is free from a long list of chemicals. The shade we’re obsessed with? ‘Keep Cool’. It’s a slightly cooler-toned version that’s still full of totally on-trend peachy magic.

Key features:

Stand-alone polish 
Glossy finish

Available at:

Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer in ‘Porn-A-Thon’

from $32 at Rogue Beauty

Smith and Cult are here to stand out, break the mould and give us colours we don’t expect. They’re here to help us stand out from the crowd and make our own rules. With a commitment to go easy on the environment each nail polish is guaranteed eight-free, vegan and cruelty-free. Meet the colour, ‘Porn-A-Thon’ (like we said, they like to stand out). And while the name might be a bit…much the perfect peachiness that lies within is just enough. With a chip-resistant guarantee, self-levelling formula (we have no clue how either, but we appreciate it) and an abundantly high-shine finish, we’ll be wearing this one on repeat.
