Urban Decay Naked Nail Polish Swatches

Just before the new year, Urban Decay released the Naked nail polish set, riding on the success of the rest of the Naked line, which I just adore! The set includes six different shades that correspond to the eyeshadows in the original Naked eyeshadow palette: Naked, Sidecar, Toasted, Smog, Hustle, and Creep.

Naked is a warm beige color; I thought this would be similar to Deborah Lippmann’s Naked polish, but the DL Naked is much more neutral.

Sidecar is a pink nude shade with silver glitter. I love this color.

Toasted is a pinkish brown shade; a little frosty but very pretty.

Smog is amazing! It’s a rich burgundy/copper/gold leaning shade.

Hustle is a deep purple shade…my least favorite since I do not like purple.

Creep is grayish black with silver glitter.

I think this is a gorgeous set of colors and is very wearable. My favorite shades are Sidecar and Smog. The polish itself is very smooth and applies nicely; sometimes Sidecar gets a little tricky with the glitter, which also happens with Creep.

One thing I love about this set is that it is perfect for people who need neutrals for the office (not my case, but I still love neutrals), and it’s also great for people with short nails who love nail polish but don’t want a lot of attention drawn to just how short their nails are (definitely my case sometimes).

What do you think of this set? Is it something you might pick up?

I received an email today from Sephora that a new nail polish set is available for VIBs before it launches to the public: the Urban Decay The New Naked nail polish set. This retails for $26 and contains five mini bottles.

Doesn’t this set look gorgeous? Each bottle is .16 ounces and contains the shades Hustle, Naked, Smog, Toasted, Creep, and Sidecar. The shades are named after several shades from the popular eyeshadows in the Naked series.

You can see a closer look at the shades here.

Here are a couple of reviews from Sephora’s website:

I bought these nail polishes because I wanted them as stocking stuffers. The colors are amazing there are metallics, glitters and opaque nail colors.The colors are the same as the eye shadows they make and they are just as pigmented.

To be honest I’m not a huge fan of urban decay, but these polishes are gorgeous! They are a mix of cremes metallics and shimmers. I saw them in store and was amazed at how beautifully the colors translated into polishes. I think this would be a perfect gift for any girl! Don’t hesitate to buy this because it’s a great deal!

What do you think of this set? Must have? Pass?
