Whether you agree to this or not, your Nail Polish makes a major statement and speaks volume about your personality. And if you learn how to choose a colour for your nails that perfectly compliments your skin tone, then you’ve already won half the battle!

Are you aware of the fact that the colour of your nail polish completely changes the way your hands look? Certain colours look splendid on fair skin, while some look ravishing on olive skin, and some other work best for tan & medium skin tones. 

If you’re on the lookout for the perfect nail paint for you, here is an all-inclusive that we’ve curated for you! 

Nail Paints to compliment different Skin Tones 

You don’t have to restrict yourself to a certain set of colours for your nails but specific colours help you flaunt the best of what you’ve got and make your hands look absolutely flawless. Now, you wouldn’t miss that, right?

  • Olive to Medium Skin Tones
