What does pastel pink nail polish mean?
Pastel pink polish shades are yellowish-pink colors.
They range from coral to peach.
Pastel pinks are very similar to baby pinks.
These pastel pink shades are the cute, sweet pinks that we may think of as being very girly and childish.
Pastel pinks are pink shades that have had white mixed in. They can be medium to light.
What is sheer pink nail polish?
There are 2 main types of pastel pink polish that come under the “sheer” umbrella.
The first type is the translucent pink nail polishes.
These are basically see-through polishes.
Translucent sheer nail polish doesn’t cover your natural nail fully.
They are not opaque because they’re designed to enhance the natural nail rather than cover it up completely.
Translucent sheer polishes are very natural-looking. You can think of them as tints.
The second type of sheer pink polish is a very subtle pastel pink that goes on sheer but that can look opaque with enough coats.
Nude pink nail polish
Nude pinks are pink polish shades that work more like neutrals.
Think fleshy shades and pink-beige.
Nude pink nail polish looks very classy, elegant, and natural.
It’s a perfect everyday option and you can wear it anywhere.
The main benefit of choosing a nude pink polish is that it will go with more things.
Want a versatile polish that will work with as many outfits as you can throw at it?
Then a nude pink is a great choice!
Blush pink nail polish
“Blush” is another word that gets thrown around a lot in the polish world.
But what does it mean?
Well, blush is a shade of pink.
It’s actually a medium bright tone, so not technically a pastel pink.
But we’ve included it in our round-up anyway because so many people think of blush as a pastel pink.
Blush pinks are very soft, delicate, and feminine.
Who suits pastel pink nail polish?
Most people can pull off pastel pink nail polish.
It’s a fun, bright, vibrant, and happy color.
However, because it’s associated with babies and children, it doesn’t lend itself to a chic and sophisticated look.
It’s the perfect color for fun and flirty, girly outfits.
But it’s not really a mature color, so if you want something chicer I’d go with a blush or a nude pink instead.
If you have warm, cool, neutral, or olive skin, you can wear pastel pink.
Pastel pinks can be warm or cool.
You’ll need to find the right shade that compliments your skin tone (we’ll help you out with that later).
When to wear pastel pink nail polish.
Pastel pink nails are a great option for spring and summer.
A lovely pastel pink might be perfect for school, or for a summer vacation.
But it’s probably not going to be appropriate for the office, especially if you’re in a conservative field.
If you’re looking for a pink that will work in fall and winter, a nude pink will work in all seasons.
Wear pastel pink polish anytime you’re feeling fun and playful.
How to choose the perfect pastel pink
There are plenty of awesome pastel pinks to choose from.
Here are some tips for choosing the perfect pastel shade for you:
– If you have warm skin tones, look for pastel pink nail polishes with peachy or yellow undertones. Look for ones where it says “warm” on the description – you’re golden.
– If you have cool skin tones, look for pastel pinks with blue or cool undertones.
– If you have neutral skin, you can rock any kind of pastel pink.
My top tip for getting the right shade (and making your nails look their best) is to read polish descriptions.
Not all polish makers describe the colors well, so I always like to go for a brand that gives thorough and accurate descriptions on their website.
Zoya is a great example of this.
You can actually search for cool or warm polishes on their website.
So, that’s it!
