Manicure Monday: Nude Nail Polish For ALL Skin Tones

By | Monday, August 10, 2015 Leave a Comment
Every girl needs a fail safe nude nail polish, but what's the right shade when we all come in different colours? I'm going to teach you how to pick a proper nude nail polish for your skin tone and give you a few recommendations of my own.

HOW DO I PICK A NUDE NAIL POLISH?

  1. Firstly, choose a neutral nail polish that compliments your skin by matching it to your foundation. 
  2. Try it on your nail to find the right match. Looking at the colour through the bottle just won't do.
  3. Check the coloration of your skin near the cuticle – if you have blue undertones and your cuticle looks red, then you chose a color with too much blue. If you have yellow undertone and your cuticle looks dark, then you chose a shade that’s too pink.
