Tips for choosing the perfect pink nail polish

The best way to find your perfect pink is to try lots of different shades.

You might be surprised at how many different shades of pink there are!

Here are some tips to help you choose the right pink:

– If you have fair skin, go for a pale pink. Baby pinks and nudes will also suit you.

– If you have medium skin, try a mid-tone or medium pink.

– For olive skin, go for coral pink or fuchsia pink.

– If you have dark skin, try a hot pink or a deep berry shade.

Try to match your skin tone and the tone of the polish.

So for example, If you have cool skin, go for a pink with blue undertones or one that says cool in the description.

If you have warm skin, go for a pink with yellow or orange undertones or one that says warm in the description.
