In the world of beauty, there are many different ways to enhance your appearance. Some people go for the more obvious methods, such as thick eyeshadow and eyeliner. Other people prefer to handle things in a much more subtle manner. If you are looking for a way to improve your overall appearance without drawing too much attention to one part of your body, you might want to consider looking into nail polish. Nail polish is the best way to add a little bit of feminine flair to your appearance in a subtle and fashionable way, as long as you make sure that you are choosing the right colour. The right colour for your nail polish is going to depend on several different factors.
Matching Your Nail Polish To Your Undertone
There are two things you are going to want to match your nail polish colour with: your clothing and your skin. Of course, matching nail polishes to the colour of your skin and clothes is pretty easy as it’s usually obvious to tell what the colour is. However, you are also going to want to find a nail polish colour that matches your skin’s undertones. It can be a little more difficult figuring out what your undertone is. Finding your skin’s undertone is pretty easy, as all you need to do is hold a white piece of paper to your skin. If your hands are yellowish, then you have a warm undertone. If your hands are pink or blue in comparison to the paper, you have a cool undertone. If your skin is grey, then your undertone is neutral.
As for the colours of nail polish you will want to look at, it varies depending on skin tone. Warm undertones should look for equally warm nail polish colours. Oranges and pinks are perfect for this, making peach and salmon perfect nail polish colours that won’t draw too much attention. For cool undertones, you will want to look at pinks, more specifically, hot pinks. These pinks will draw the colour to your nails while adding a fun and feminine flair to your hands. As for the neutral tones, a red-orange nail polish is going to be your best bet. These colours will be incredibly flattering for anyone who has neutral skin tones, as it brings a pop of colour to your hands.
What About Colours That Draw Attention?
Not everyone wants to draw attention to themselves, but there are some people who want this extra attention. If you are looking for nail polish colours that will draw attention and put your whole outfit together, you will want to look at nail polish colours that are the opposite colour of what you are wearing. This is called complementary colours, and the stark contrast in opposite colours is not only eye catching, but it can make any outfit look beautiful.
