Top 10 Nail Polishes For Fair Skin July 14, 2017

When it comes to nail polishes, most women tend to blindly pickup any shade that catches their fancy, irrespective of whether it suits them or not. Do remember, certain shades look best only when worn on certain skin tones. Today we shall talk about fair skinned beauties. Gals, you are lucky for sure. A wide range of shades from light, barely there colours to bright and bold ones would work quite well. Pinks, reds and corals must be chosen with blue undertones. If you want to go bold, try purples, wines, berry or browns that are medium dark. Avoid metallic golds, greens and yellows as these can wash out your skin tone. Now that you have got the basics right, check out some wonderful nail polish colours for fair skin chosen exclusively for you.
