Nail polish is the perfect element that can help you change your look in just a few minutes. However, with so many options we have today, sometimes it is too hard to decide which nail color would work best. You can make the right choice according to your skin tone, to the occasion or to the season.
One of the first things to consider when choosing the color of your nail polish is what you’ll be doing. Is there a special event or an occasion? The colors will vary based on what you’re doing (a date, normal day, wedding).
The best colors for a professional environment are neutral colors. Neutral colors are the best way to show your professional side. Muted colors work well in these situations as well. If you’re doing a presentation, you don’t want the colors to be a distraction so this is one of the main reasons they should be muted or neutral colors.
Skin Tone and Nail Color. Lighter shades with pink undertones go well with fair skin. Blue undertones can also go with fair skin. Lighter skin tones look best in berry red in the daytime and more dramatic shades in the evening. If you have olive or dark skin, golds and russets will play up your skin. Darker skin tones can get by with deep, rich vibrant colors including vibrant purples and reds.
Choose Based On Your Lipstick Color. One way to determine what shades of nail polish will work with your skin tone is to choose nail color based on the colors that flatter your lips. If you look great in russet shades of lipstick, chances are this color will look good on your nails. Look through your lipstick inventory and see if colors that coordinate with your lip colors will work for you.
