Taupe (aka mushroom) is probably in the top three of my favorite nail polish colors (behind olive green and dark vampy colors). Something about how unusual it looks draws me in every time. I have never met a taupe that didn’t look good on my skin tone.
Today’s post is an ode to taupe, and I have featured my top ten favorite ones. Most are cremes, but I do have a few shimmers in there as well.
All of these have been reviewed before on my site, so these aren’t full reviews.
So without further adieu, here they are in no particular order.
BB Couture Cowboy
Cowboy is simply amazing. What I love the most about this one is that it’s a dark taupe and it has a very subtle silver shimmer. This might be in my top 3 fav taupes.
OPI You Don’t Know Jacques
Obviously this picture is old, blurry, and horrible, but the color is still tops. I must remember to get a back up bottle or two of this one, I love it *that* much! This would be in my top 2 fav taupes.
Orly Prince Charming
Nice, more in the brown side, but I still consider it a taupe.
Color Club High Society
Mmmm another one of my favs, I love this! This is like a grey/putty colored taupe.
Another great one, despite the silly name.
Sephora By OPI Metro Chic
Another horrible, old pic, but amazing color. This color is what started my fascination with taupe. I need to re-take this badly because I am destroying all that is beautiful about this polish with a grainy photo. 🙂
Cheeky Monkey Hangover
Hangover took me by surprise actually. I thought it was going to be more of a sheer nude, but it’s a fabulous shimmery taupe, and the shimmer has silver, green and pink. Love it.
OPI Over The Taupe
Another one, leaning more towards brown.
I don’t love this color as much as a lot of the other taupes on this list, but still felt it was top 10 worthy.
American Apparel Mouse
Mouse is a very grey/concrete taupe, which I adore, and don’t have anything else like it.
Which of these are your favs? Which ones would you have put on your list?
