Is this your first time getting nail polish? You're probably not sure which color looks best on you. There are so many colors to choose from, but not all of them will look great on you. What looks great on one person might not look great on others. Here are some very good advice to follow when selecting nail polish colors for you:
Your skin tone matters to make the nails stand out. Light and medium colors look great on light skin, while darker colors look better on dark skin tone. For example, if you want to wear pink, then wear a lighter shade of pink for light skin tone, and darker shade of pink for dark skin tone.
Nail stores will offer samples for people to try out the colors. What you can do is bring a small piece of napkin, or any type of paper will do, and use it to put nail polish samples on it. You can put your finger next to the color side by side to see if it looks great on you.
There are many types of polish to choose from. Matte and glitter are the most common types that people buy. If you this is your first time buying, then stick to these two basics for now. If you are going to a girls' night out event at a club, you can go crazy with glitter and wacky patterns.
Use common sense because if you are going for an interview or business meeting, you might want to just stick to plain colors. Unusual colors and patterns can bring too much attention to your hands. Assuming your business meeting or interview has nothing to do with hand modeling, you don't want crazy colors.
Many people will choose to match the nail colors with the clothes that they wear. They will also match colors with the seasons, for example, during Spring, a person might wear baby blue or light green color nail polish.
If you are going to spend money on this, you might as well go for much more expensive brands. The expensive ones tend to be organic which are not harmful to your nails. The cheap kinds use harmful chemicals which are bad for the environment and your nails.
You can always ask an experienced employee at a nail salon for colors that they think would be best on you. It never hurts to experiment to try new things!
