Gear up and follow these ways to get your right nail polish color
1Select By Your Skin Tone
Your skin tone determines the selection of almost all your makeup and accessories. Be very careful while selecting according to your favorites, because your favorite color might not go with your skin tone. If you are a person who loves black, but has a fair skin tone, black nail color is something you should avoid. Instead, you can go with lighter shades like grey or metallic colors like silver, gold…etc.
Dark sink tone is the right skin tone for dark colors. Yes! If you are a person who has a dark skin tone, you have all the freedom to opt for dark colors. Anything from the classic red to royal blue or black will look lovely on your nails.
2Select By Your Mood
Being a woman calls for mood swings, hormonal issues that we have. Your mood can be a factor for deciding the right nail polish color for you. If you are in a good mood, you will always feel like wearing bright colors. When you are just lazy and laid back, you can go for lighter shades or probably which ever shade is the nearest for you to pick. A sad day and a sad mood can always make you opt for dull shades.
3Select By Your Outfit
If you are that woman who always wants everything just perfect, you can always go for shades which match the outfit you are going to put on. Make sure that you don’t get too paranoid about matching the dress color exactly with your nail color. Because, that will be too much of perfection. Remember, too much of anything is good for nothing. So, you have to go for either a lighter or a darker shade to your dress color.
Wearing the exact color matching with your dress can be kinda monotonous. The right color nail polish according to your outfit can be a contrasting one. If you are wearing a multiple colored outfit, it can be the non-dominating color.
4Select By The Occasion
5Select By Your Lipstick or Make up
Apart from your skin tone, outfit, event, your lipstick color can also help get the right color nail polish for you. One rule which is always applicable here is that, you can always match the dramatic colors. If your lipstick is a dramatic shade of red, so can be your nail color.
For non-dramatic colors, you don’t want to be all strict about matching them. It will not give you the perfect look. So, you can always go for the complementary shades along side your makeup or lipstick.
By Dressing up perfectly and making your nails look good, you allow yourself to look confident. Every aspect of presenting yourself with a stylish look accents your personality. Nails being one of the smallest parts of our body, if taken care of, can bring the best out of us.
