The title may confuse you, but allow me to illustrate. You see I have this
Vampiric Irish skin that just stays white. It's white, white, occasionally turns bright red and then just goes white again. The point being, I love tan polishes - in the bottle. I expect them to be a nice nude look, but they may as well be dark chocolate for how they contrast with my skin. This is OPI "San Tan-tonio":
I couldn't handle the contrast, so I softened it up a bit with Zoya "Erin" which is a super pale nude color with a bit of shimmer in it. It totally did the trick, I would definitely be more likely to rock this mani.
