Nude manicure: simple and tasteful
Like a little black dress or red lipstick, a nude manicure is a universal classic that will suit any girl, regardless of age or style. So today we will delve into the aspects of nude manicure. :)
Despite the fact that nude manicure most often evokes in us associations with modesty and rigor, translated from English “nude” means “naked”, and as planned, such a manicure was supposed to symbolize and emphasize the beauty of a naked body.
A nude manicure goes well with any outfit, piece of jewelry or situation (it remains one of the girls' favorites when choosing a wedding manicure for a reason), and it is absolutely timeless!
Also, with the right choice of shade, a nude manicure can “ennoble” any shape of the nail, as well as make your fingers visually longer and more elegant .
It’s not for nothing that I first focus on the shade of the manicure, and not on the design, because choosing the wrong shade can actually become an enemy to your skin color, and emphasize all the imperfections of the hands. That is why it is so important to find the right shade exactly according to your skin tone .
Nude manicure for very fair skin
Fair-skinned people have blue and pink undertones. So if your skin is on the "bright side", then for covering your nails, I suggest choosing a shade that enhances cool undertones to complement and help offset any redness on the skin and cuticles. But a warm beige or too dark shade of nude will visually make the hands even more pale and painful.
If your fair skin is dominated by greenish-yellow undertones, then it makes sense to pay attention to a beige coating with a light gray tint. This manicure will create an unobtrusive contrast with fair skin.
One of my colleagues jokingly calls a nude manicure “mommy”, because when the nails grow, this is practically not noticeable, and you can slightly delay the meeting with the master, which makes such a manicure ideal for young mothers. :)
Nude manicure for medium skin tones
If you are the owner of this skin tone, then you are lucky, because most nude shades will suit you. It is worth staying away from too yellow or too pink shades of beige. Ideally, you should choose something in between. :)
Girls with more yellow skin tones should opt for a coating that will “refresh” the skin of the hands a little. Rose polish will help give the skin a natural glow. It makes sense to avoid varnishes with yellow tints.
But girls with olive skin tone should try a rich beige or a very light neutral caramel color, because it will demonstrate both warm and cool shades at the same time. This nail polish will still provide contrast with your skin, and will help avoid the "mannequin hands" effect where the color of the nail coating exactly matches the color of the skin.
Nude manicure for dark or tanned skin
For deeper, warmer, honey-colored skin tones, milky browns and dark chocolate tones are perfect to bring out the beauty of your skin while still creating a subtle contrast.
Oh, I immediately remembered how delightful a nude manicure looks on tanned hands ... especially if it's holding a glass of cocktail in some exotic resort! :)
But such hands should avoid ash gray shades, as it can make the skin look faded and unattractive.
Well, girls, now you know how to choose the right shade for a nude manicure, I hope my information has become useful for you. And do not forget the most important thing - not a single shade of varnish will look beautiful on groomed hands. :)
