How To Choose Nude Nail Polish
Nude nail polish and color in general has been trendy for past several years. And it is one of the hottest trends for the Spring/Summer 2012 season. The models were spotted wearing nude nails at Rochas, Derek Lam, Giorgio Armani, and other shows. Nude is neutral and has a barely there look. To choose the right nude nail polish opt for the shade that is closest to your skin tone.
The definition of a nude color in fashion can be quite confusing but the color is often described as the one that is closest to a wearer’s skin tone. Consider this when choosing a nude nail polish as well as pay attention to undertones. Since there are many different shades and hues in nude nail polish so try several different shades of polish before buying to find the best shade that comes closest to your skin tone.
Tips on Choosing Nude Nail Polish:
- Light Skin Tone. Opt for pink- or yellow-based nudes for a light skin tone, depending on your skin undertones.
- Medium Skin Tone. For medium skin tone go for a nude nail polish with gold undertones.
- Dark Skin Tone. A brown-based nude nail polish will suit the dark skin tone.
This is approximate however. Don’t be afraid to go a few shades lighter or darker in order to find the right shade for you. Also pay attention to hues as nude includes pinks, yellows, and browns. Texture can also play a role in making the nails look more natural. Sheerer textures can emphasize the barely there effect. Nude nail polish gives nails a polished look so it can be easily worn daily as well as one the more formal night out.
