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. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to choose the right nail polish.

The contrast between your skin complexion and the color of the nail polish can emphasize you in an elegant and sensual way. First of all, one important thing you should do is to coordinate the color you have chosen with your skin complexion. The shade of the nail polish has to compliment the color of your skin and not to point it out in an exaggerated manner. Therefore, according to your skin complexion, here is a small guide on how to choose the right nail polish.

According to your skin tone

Fair skin. In this case you should choose darker colors with blue base. Strong reds with pink hues, as well as berry colors such as strawberries, raspberries or cranberries are a great option. You can also go for medium red shades or bright pinks. If you have very fair skin, you should avoid wearing light blue, gold, green or yellow colors when it comes to nail polish.
Medium skin. Women having medium skin must choose darker reds like burgundies and wine colors with a yellow and a blue base. If you have an olive skin, neon pink, blue and orange, or metallics like blue or silver are a good choice. Avoid dark blue and violet.
Darker skin. For this type of skin almost every possible color is appropriate. However, the most recommended are deep red and plum. Pink, violet, light blue and chocolate will work too. One color that should be avoided is bronze as this is to close to your skin complexion.
