The Best Nude Shades For Darker Skin Tones

As with a foundation, there are nail polishes with different undertones. However, unlike foundations, your nail polish should not match your skin colour but it should enhance it. If you match your skin tone exactly, the nail colour can wash out your skin, you should aim to go a couple of shades lighter or darker than your skin tone. 

Many sheer nudes had pink or whiter undertones which do not work as well for darker skin tones, instead your should try a sheer nude with beige undertones. This beige colour balances the nail bed colour to the skin colour while still maintaining a sheer clean look. 

The Best Nude Shades for Medium Skin Tones

For those with medium skin tones, such as olive skinned beauties, our Fresh Lifestyle nail specialists recommend that you try a nail nude nail colour with hints of pink or peach. Peachy nail colours will make a medium skin tone really “pop”!
