Pale polishes: Edited: Added photo

I need a few good pale polishes. I have one, Essie Muchi,Muchi. I generally do not wear them, but my poor nails have been through a lot recently and need a break from all the change, so I want something simple for a while. I would really like a good skin toned color, but something that will cover my nail. I don't like anything really sheer, needs to be opaque. Any recommendations?

Edit:

This is the Essie I have. I decided to go with something simple this week. I had to have some nail art though, I just don't feel right with plain nails lol. For a pale color I really like this one.

Hmm, not sure.  I don't wear pale polishes.  I think the only one I have that is lighter is Butter London All Hail the Queen.  I know Essie makes a lot of paler polishes.  Maybe look at WNW Megalast polishes,   They have 4 that are in the nude/brown family and they are actually quite nice.   Also, look at Sinful polishes too.  They are .99 this week at Walgreens.

 I don't really do many pale colors either... The few I have are all Essie. This one is Eternal Optimist. it's the 1st color I thought of after reading your post.

 I don't look great with most pale colors, but this one leans to the brown side =)

well, I'm not kidding, it's seriously grogeous.  If I could only have ONE polish, I'd pick this... even over pink! it's THAT beautiful, and god knows I love pink.  Treat yourself and get it, you'll smile every time you see your nails!  and, it LASTS.  They make wonderful polish.  here's a better pic
