Gorgeous Nude Nail Polish Alert: Deborah Lippmann Naked

For a while now my favorite nude polish has been Essie Topless and Barefoot. I didn't think it could get any better than T&B until I splurged on a Deborah Lippmann nail polish in the shade, Naked. And "naked" it is. Its a much more flesh toned shade than the other nudes I own. Its not as light as T&B yet not as dark as something like Sally Hansen Cafe Au' Lait. Of all my nudes,  Naked is the one that matches closest to my actual skin. Nude polish in a flesh tone does for the hands what nude pumps do for the legs. Elongates them. My fingers are kind of short so for me, this little trick works to help my fingers look longer and more delicate. 
This is my second DL nail polish. With a price tag of $16 for her regular colors and $20 for her glitters, I have been hesitant to add to my collection. But Anne Hathaway wore Naked to this past years Oscar's. Anne has great taste and now, I guess, so do I! 
To get technical about the color description, Naked is a sheer beige that needs 3 coats to be fully appreciated. If you don't own a DL color, her formula applies like a dream. Its creamy without being too thick or messy but yet not as thin and streaky as an Essie polish would be after  two coats in a similar shade. Is it worth $16-$20? I don't think so. While its better than Essie, China Glaze, and Butter London, it stands toe to toe with OPI which is half the price. But she must be doing something right because many A-list celebs trust their nails to Miss Lippmann, whose color range is full of the unique and glittery as well as the trendy and muted. Check out Waking Up in Vegas (pale grey) and Happy Birthday (multi-colored glitter) if you want to try her other famous shades.
