How to buy perfect Nail paint shades online according to your skin tone

Filed under: Latest News,Lifestyle & Fashion |

 We know how hard it can be to find the right nail polish shade when shopping online. The bigger issue is that you are getting nail polish that you have not seen physically, and the delivered product can either be a disappointment or an absolute delight.  However, picking out your perfect shade is not just about what looks good on other people, especially the models in the shade. It’s about what suits your skin tone and personality, too. You want a nail polish that will give you nice results when you apply. With that in mind, here are the best tips for finding the perfect match for your skin tone online.


1. Figure Out Your Skin Tone

Skin tone is determined by your genes and the amount of melanin in your skin, with more melanin making you appear darker. The color of your eyes can also help determine how cool or neutral your skin tone is compared to other people with similar eye colors.

Awareness of your skin tone helps reduce the prospects of choosing the wrong color when going through the products. Suppose you have a light skin tone, shades such as Nudes, Red, pink, and Blue. For darker skin, opt for more neutral colors. Before deciding which polish to get from the online polish shop, ensure that it fits your undertone.


2. Eliminate Shades That Won’t Work

Before making the best choice for your skin tone, you must know what shade of nail paint would look best on you. This means knowing your skin’s undertone, the color that comes out when you mix two colors and match them with a specific color family. For example, suppose someone has yellow undertones and is part of the Yellow family (which includes oranges and greens).On the other hand, someone who has orange/red undertones should go for shades like Lemonade or Mint Green if they want their nails to stand out more than usual.

3. Experiment With The Undertones

You are probably familiar with the concept of a color’s undertone. When you look at color in the light, the color appears to have different degrees of coolness, warmth, and neutrality. While various shades look great in different undertones, you’ll find that experimenting with tones outside your tone can have a better unorthodox outcome.


4. Look For The Right Color Family

Color families are based on the color wheel. The first three colors are warm, cool, and neutral. Warm colors include orange, red, and yellow; cool ones include blue and green; neutrals include brown, black, or white.

It’s essential to look for the right shade of nail paint if you have one of these skin tones to save yourself from disappointment with the final results.

5. Be Bold in Your Choice

Consider your skin’s undertone if you’re looking for a nail polish shade that will accentuate your skin tone and make it look more vibrant. Undertone is the skin quality seen through the surface of your epidermis (the outermost layer) and dermis (the more profound layers).

Undertones can be categorized as cool or warm, depending on how pink/red they appear under natural light. Cool undertones look cooler than warm undertones in these situations; however, it’s not always easy to tell what kind of undertone someone has just by looking at them.

If you have cool or neutral-toned skin but want something brighter than usual, or if you’re feeling bolder, try one with a different undertone than normal. For example: if you have cool-toned eyes naturally but want something bolder on your nails, so everyone quickly notices them, then try choosing a shade that compliments your eyes.

6. Stay in the Same Family

There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when you can find similar shades in your favorite color family. For example, if you’re looking for pink-toned nail polish and prefer light pinks, try using shades within Cerise or Soft Pink families. If you’re looking for something richer, choose from Burgundy or Red family colors like Merlot or Tangerine.

You might be wondering why this matters so much. Why not just experiment with any random shade of purple? Well, there are some practical reasons why sticking with one family will help keep things consistent (and thus more attractive) over time:

  • The color selection offered by most brands is limited; certain shades may look great at first glance but then lose their luster after being worn several times in different environments—which makes them less likely to work as well on other nails than they did originally!    
  •  If this happens often enough with one particular brand’s line of polishes, it would be easy enough just to buy another set instead, and then what happens when those eventually wear out too? You end up spending too much on unnecessary purchases because you didn’t think about how often your preferences change over time.

Wrapping Up

Hope you enjoyed this quick guide to finding the perfect nail polish shade for your skin tone. As you can see, there are a lot of tricks at your disposal to help make sure your favorite shade suits your style. The best part is that most people already have a great idea of their skin tone. You just need to think about it from scratch and use that knowledge as a starting point when shopping online.
