eyecandy_eva

On most Fashion Week runways, nude manicures have surpassed any other nail trend for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2013 season. Start practicing the art of perfectly nude nails, that elongate your fingers and complement any outfit, and find out how to choose the right shade according to your skin tone, in order to obtain a truly stunning effect.

For Fair Skin With Cool Undertones

>> If you’ve got really fair skin with a pink-ish undertone, try a sheer pale pink and avoid yellow undertones, which will contrast badly with your skin colour.

>> To make your skin glow, add a shimmery top coat.

For Fair Skin With Warm Undertones

>> If your skin is really fair with a yellow-ish undertone, go for a light beige with yellow undertones as well.

>> Both opaque and sheer polishes will look good with your skin tone.

For Medium Skin With Cool Undertones

 medium cool

>> If your skin is neither fair, nor olive, but has cool undertones, the best option for you is a light cream with a sheer finish.

>> A shimmery top coat will give your skin a healthy glow.

For Medium Skin With Warm Undertones

 medium warm

>> If your skin is neither fair, nor olive, but has warm undertones, opt for a nude polish with an opaque finish, ensuring that it doesn’t have yellow undertones, which would make your skin look sickly.

For Olive Skin

 olive

>> If your skin is permanently sun-kissed, go for a dark beige with an opaque finish, that is either a little lighter or a little darker than your skin tone.

>> Try to avoid shades with yellow undertones.

For Dark Skin With Cool Undertones

 dark cool

>> For a truly sensational effect, try finding a shade that’s as close to your skin tone as possible. It will elongate your fingers and make your hands look slimmer.

>> You may choose shades with either cool or warm undertones, as they both complement your skin.

For Dark Skin With Warm Undertones

 dark warm

>> Give your skin a healthy glow and highlight the warm subtones of your skin with a colour that’s as close as possible to your skin tone, but which has a bronze or golden finish.

>> An opaque finish will look way better on you than a sheer one, elongating for your nails and fingers and making them look slimmer.
