5 nail colours that complement deep skin tones perfectly

Written by Sumona BoseMay 26, 2020
Unless you know what you want, choosing a nail colour at the salon can get overwhelming. The neat and excessively stacked racks at your favourite salon can throw you into a tizzy. And nothing can ruin a good mani day than a hurriedly picked nail colour that looks a bit off as soon as you walk out. Much like a foundation or lipstick, it’s best to pick a nail colour shade that complements your complexion for best results. We picked 5 pretty shades that complement deeper skin tones perfectly so you don’t have to. Take a look…

01. Deep browns

Dusky girls stand at a great advantage of wearing all things brown and not have it look boring. Pair a glossy shade like the Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish in Deep Taupe with all of your oxidised jewellery and watch the compliments flow.

02. Warm nudes

It’s generally said that warm undertones can benefit from nude shades to make their complexion pop. From natural shades to baby pinks, these subtle hues look super chic on deep skin tones. Up the drama just a tad bit with a shine-finish formula like the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Gloss Nail Color in Nude Flush.

03. Delightful neons

Neon nails look totally fabulous on dusky skin tones. They are loud and eye-catching; the perfect contrast for a deep skin tone that is craving some colour. Either stick to one statement shade like a lemon yellow or mix and match with your favourite picks of vibrant neon shades.

04. Pastel shades

Pastel shades are often trending among fashion and beauty enthusiasts. Millennial pink, creamy mints and quirky yellow are some of the go-to shades for girls who love a dash of colour with everything. Pro tip: they will look great with all your summer outfits!

05. Candy skin

As opposed to the warm undertones we spoke about, cooler undertones benefit greatly from vibrant colours that bring depth to their complexion. Keeping tradition with this summer’s biggest trend, we recommend the Lakme True Wear Color Crush - Shade 61 to best complement your deeper skin tone.
