Colored nail polish is like the cherry on the top of a really great ice cream sundae. It really isn’t necessary, clear polish works in every occasion, but there is something about seeing the way your nails look when they are painted a pretty color that just seems to make you feel like you look even more beautiful than you already were.
The problem with wearing a colored nail polish is that it can be hard to know what color nail polish you should choose. There are so many fun and exciting colors to choose from that it can be a bit overwhelming.
Where Are You Going
The first thing you should consider when you are selecting a colored nail polish is where you will be wearing it. You can get away with wearing a bright, sexy, fun nail polish when you are going out for a night on the town, but if you are going to work you will want to keep your choice in nail polish color a little more sedate.
When you are purchasing a colored nail polish you should stop to think about your complexion. If you are fair skinned, dark and really bright nail polishes might overpower your natural coloring, you should look for paler shades of nail polish. If you are dark, the paler nail polishes might look dull on your nails, you should consider brightly colored nail polishes.
If you are wearing a lot of jewelry, especially rings, you might want to consider wearing a nail polish to match. You can either match the rings metal; there are several nice nail polishes that are beautiful metallic looking gold and silvers. If you don’t like the look of a solid gold or silver nail polish you can match the polish to the stones that are inlaid into your jewelry.
If you are looking for something that is really new and different you should go to a nail salon and have a scenic scene painted onto your nails. If you are careful the image will last a long time. In addition to looking great, the minuscule painted scene is an excellent conversation starter.
