Josephine Allen, a manicurist at New York City’s Samuel Shriqui Salon, shows us how.
Study your skin tone.
Regardless of whether you choose a nude, a bright, or a dark, your skin will determine the shade that looks best on your hands. Women with yellow or olive undertones in their skin should choose white or beigy nudes and orange-based brights and darks (such as coral or chocolate), while those with blue undertones should stick with pinkish nudes and blue-tone brights and darks (like fuchsia and deep violet).
If you’re unsure about which category your skin falls into, paint a tomato red on one hand, and a cherry red on the other. If the tomato red is more flattering, you’re a yellow tone. If the cherry red is more flattering, you’re a blue tone.
