Blush pink nail polish is a great color choice for the spring and summer seasons, and there are so many different shades of blush pink to choose from.
Finding a blush pink isn’t always easy though.
Polish brands like to give their shades cool and quirky names to make us buy.
This might be a good marketing strategy, but it doesn’t help us as consumers find the exact shade of polish that we’re looking for.
If only they would name them after their real colors!
To save you the headache, we’ve gone ahead and gathered some of the best blush pink nail polishes available on the market.
We’ll share all the best blushes, and give you a few expert tips on how to find the perfect shade of blush pink for your nails.
Alright, let’s get started.
Here’s what we’ll cover in this post:
What color is blush pink nail polish?
Some people think of blush as more of a peachy color, but technically it is a pink shade.
Blush is a medium pink color that can have some brightness to it but that is generally quite soft.
Think of it like a soft, pretty, barely-there medium to pale pink that’s almost neutral.
In the polish world, you’ll see the word blush used interchangeably with other terms like natural pink, muted pink, nude pink, pale pink, soft pink, and light pink.
Is blush a neutral color?
Blush is a shade of pink, so it’s not technically a neutral color.
However, because it’s so muted and soft, it does work like a neutral.
What does that mean?
Well, it means that blush pink is a perfect everyday wear color that is going to go with a lot of outfits.
You can pair blush pink nail polish with other neutrals like gray, white, or navy blue.
Or, you may want to use these colors in nail art, or include them in your outfits and accessories and they will go well together.
You could also wear something pink for a more monochromatic look.

Blush gel nail polish
Blush gel nail polishes are amazing!
Not only do you get a longer-lasting manicure, but your nails will go with so many things.
If you want a versatile color that you can wear every day without having to do too much color coordination with your clothes, then a blush gel polish is for you.
I love the feeling of opening my closet and knowing that I can wear anything I want because my nails won’t clash.
It’s also an elegant and classy nail choice that works for any occasion.
Light blush nail polish
Blush pink can be anywhere in the depth of the color from medium to light pink.
Light blush is of course on the lighter end of that scale.
Some light blush pinks are very sheer, so they can be great for a french manicure look.
Others may almost look white with just a tiny hint of blush.
It’s a good idea to think about the coverage you want.
Opaque blush pinks will cover the entire nail in 2 coats.
Whereas sheer light blush shades will be semi-transparent.
Nude nail polish
There can sometimes be a little overlap here, so I’m going to give you a good tip to help you out when shopping for blush polishes.
Nude pink is a thing. It’s very similar to blush pink and it crops up under different color headings on polish websites.
You can sometimes find blush pinks listed under nude.
So my top tip is to check the “nude” section as well as the “pink” section when you’re shopping for blush pink nail polish.
So there you have it, everything you need to know about blush pink nail polish.
This versatile shade is perfect for any occasion and can be worn with a variety of other colors.
Whether you’re looking for a light and sheer shade or more opaque color, there’s definitely a blush pink out there for you.
And don’t forget to check the nude section when you’re shopping for your perfect blush polish!
Have fun choosing your perfect pink and I’ll see you next time.
