The beginning of every new season is such a rush for the nail addict!

For example, in late summer, I went nuts because of all the new fall nail polish collections, which mostly consist of vampy colors and hues that make me want to hug my sweater while I waited for the temperatures to get low enough to actually put it on.

But then there’s that period of time where you’ve worn all the vampy fall polishes, and you need a breather in between the deep purples and blues and Halloween nail art. This fall, neutral shades are as trendy as the hot vampy colors, and a smart choice to avoid dark polish burnout!

I recently got to try out a neutral shade from IBD, called Cashmere Blush. I’ve never tried IBD before, so I was curious about the brand and the formula.

Check out swatches!

What a soft, pretty neutral. It’s great for a few things: a base for nail art, a work appropriate choice, dark polish burnout prevention and…well… just because.

I don’t see IBD widely available. I have encountered racks of it at beauty supply stores. And if you Google IBD Nail Polish, you will find it for sale on eBay, Amazon and other supply places. I haven’t shopped at those places so I’m hesitant to link to any specific one.One outlet, BuyNail.com, has it for $2.95.

So do you get dark polish burnout, and reach for a neutral? Do you think IBD is a brand you’re curious to try? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below!

    I use a different color every week, but I admit I’m usually drawn to darker colors in fall and winter, and lighter colors in spring and summer. I have the IBD nail glue, since it is one of the few to which I don’t have an allergic reaction. I used to use their gel nails a long time ago, before I went “natural”. I’d be willing to try their nail colors, if they were sold anywhere I actually go.

      Yes, I wish I could find them at beauty supply shops at least! Good to know about the nail glue, Deest!
