Aside from dark shades of burgundy, navy and black, nude shades are ideal for creating a versatile manicure perfectly fitting of the fall and winter seasons. While many are aware of this fact, the perfect nude shade isn’t always within reach. It’s complicated business, this nude color stuff, and so, we’re here to break it down for you. Different skin tones call for different nudes of beige, light pink and mocha shades. Follow these tips to nail the fall manicure look.
Fair skin meshes well with pink shades as they complement both pink and blue undertones nicely. Shiny, sheer formulas are best as they enhance the nail’s natural appearance by brightening them. You need not apply layer after layer. A natural, lightweight appearance is best for the natural nail look. Opt for an opaque blush shade with pink undertones. This shade will offer more coverage and will counteract redness when paired with yellow or blue undertones.
For medium skin, brownish/beige shades are most flattering, though steer clear of yellow undertones that will bring out yellowness in your skin tone. To find the perfect shade of nude to complement your skin, hold a sheer, peach beige or tan polish next to your foundation.
Creamy beige polishes may seem dull, but they work great with medium skin tones as they highlight the tan hue of skin all while providing a fabulous contrast. Peach is another great pairing for olive skin as it provides a warm glow that’s perfect for the summer months.
Dark skin tones mesh fabulously with dark colors like mocha and cocoa. Gals with dark skin should be on the look out for any colors they’d be able to drink at Starbucks.
