At last night's Academy Awards, so many A-list actresses went nude. Fortunately, by nude we mean the color nude and the suit you wear on your first birthday--but between Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive to Kristen Stewart in Reem Acra there were a lot of flesh-tones on the red carpet this year.

And that wasn't all that was barely there; the nail color of choice was too. Almost every time the mani cam zoomed in, we saw natural colored nails. Deborah Lippmann and Brad Goreski teamed up to make a metallic nude for Stacey Kiebler. Quvenzhane Wallis had a pale Chanel mani with a crystal charm bow.

Jessica Chastain, Kerry Washington, and even the sometimes purple-haired Kelly Osbourne went neutral too. It's official: We're all going nude. Here's our roundup of the best new neutral polishes along with our old favorites.
