    8 Awesome Ideas To Pick The Perfect Nail Polish Color 

    Nails ColorEveryone would want to use the perfect OPI nail polish color. But how exactly would you get the right nail polish color? This is actually the biggest question! Well, do not worry because I have some tips for you. Getting the perfect nail polish color would entail a lot of research. You certainly would need to find something that would enhance your style! So go for a nail polish color that will help you achieve this by making your nails neat and attractive. Here is exactly what you need to know as far as choosing the right nail polish is concerned.

    • Your skin tone

    You presumably are wondering how on earth skin tone applies as far as the choice of nail polish is concerned. Well, you have the right to wonder but not for long. To begin with, you are aiming at making your nails attractive. If however you are not careful or rather ignorant about your skin tone, you may end up doing more harm than good. Get a color that matches well with your skin tone! For instance medium skin tones would do well with shades that are dark red, fair skins with dark colors and darker tones with any color. Any! Yes, those with darker tones have something to smile about.

    • Your Outfit

    Outfit? What does it have to do with nail polish? This is quite tricky. Whereas many women would at least want to match the nail polish with their outfit, trust me it is not much necessary. I would advise you to go with your instincts. If for instance you feel that you need not to match your outfit with your nail polish, well, go with that. Simply put, go for something that you feel comfortable in it.

    • Your makeup

    This is also another case where your instincts should guide you. Different people have varying opinions. Again I cannot advise you on the best way to go about it. But trust me you do not want to match a lot because it can appear showy. So if you find a way that would be awesome and attention-grabbing, take my advice. Go for it!

    • The biggest trends

    Do not be resistant to change, instead be well conversant with it. You do not want to stick around with the old, right? Well, I always say change is something inevitable! You need to pay close attention to the current trends and be sure to be well informed. Understand the present popular colors and bearing in mind your skin tone, try them out. Who knows? You may find a nail polish that will address everything as far as attractiveness of your nails is concerned!

    • The occasion

    What about the occasion? Perhaps that is the question you are asking yourself right now. Occasion counts much as far as nail polish is concerned. For instance, in places such as work where attention -grabbing is absolutely unnecessary, there is no need to be colorful. Be neutral instead. Before you apply nail polish, always ask yourself what the occasion is. That should actually serve to see you apply polish according to the occasion.

    On the other hand, if you are going to night-outs or dates, you can be as colorful as you want. After all what you are seeking for mostly is to grab attention. In fact I would even advise you to go for red. Trust me it works!

    • The season

    Season is also an important factor to consider when choosing the perfect nail polish. Darker colors for instance are most recommended during the winter season. Pretty pastels are most suitable for spring season. When it comes to summer, this is where hot colors become the most appropriate and for autumn, gold, bronze, russet and certain specific shades are just but superb! What is literally being implied here is that seasons counts are far as choosing the perfect nail polish is concerned.

    • Know what to avoid

    It is also important you get to understand what to avoid. For instance, if you are fair, then avoid something too dark. Similarly if your nails are square, avoid something light. However, this is mostly based on trial and error and you may have to try out before you finally settle for the perfect nail polish.

    • Your Favorite Colors

    This one kind of nullifies the others and I concur with this. No problem with this however. For instance if the color you adore most does not look good on you, you can go for it anyway. They are your nails after all! So go for what pleases you the most.

    In conclusion, choosing the right polish may seem easy but trust me it is not as such easy. No need to worry though. If you only get to understand these tips, you will be in a better position. As a piece of advice, go for what you are contended with as far as nail polish is concerned.
