They say that you can tell a person’s grooming just by looking at her ails. If that’s that case, then surely no one can easily asses a girl’s personality by the color of the nail polish she chooses to wear. Loud, bright colors usually indicate a strong personality, while soft, subdued hues are for the quiet and reserved. But with a seemingly unlimited range of nail polish in every color, texture, and finish available, selecting only one seems difficult. Just like the wardrobe, nail polish should be chosen according to the event or occasion. Whether you prefer to wear hot pink or clear nail polish, here are some factors to consider when choosing a nail color.
Choosing for a particular event or occasion.
Nail polish that is work-appropriate is different from the polish you would wear to a date or a party. When in a professional environment, it is best to stick to neutral, muted, or clean shades. The color should not stand out or call attention, so hues in soft pinks, beige, and pastel colors are ideal. The time to wear bold colors in glittery or metallic finishes is for a hot date or for a night out. You can go all-out with the color, with vibrant pinks, reds, and purples are your best bets.
Basing it on the season or trends.
The colors of the season usually determine which nail colors will be sold out in the coming months. While all shades of pink are still popular choices for nail polish, venturing out in this summer’s trendiest hues will bring out your more fashionable side.
Selecting one to match your skin tone.
If you have a fair skin, look for nail polish with pink or blue undertones. Red looks especially good on you, and so will bright pinks and lighter shades of pink and violet. For an olive complexion, gold, beige, and chocolate will play up on your skin tone, making it more golden. For dark skin, colors in strong purples or reds work,and so will any dark shades.
