Poppy red and crimson are both examples of red-pink colors.

There is actually a wide variety of tints, shades, and tones of red pink ranging from browny-looking red pinks to gray-looking ones.

When to wear reddish-pink nail polish

Reddish pink is a great color to wear any time of year.

It’s perfect for the spring and summer months because it’s bright and cheerful.

But it can also be worn in the fall and winter, thanks to its warm tones.

Reddish pink can be a great choice of nail color for work or for a job interview.

Pinky reds also work well for casual events and going out with friends.

What shade of red polish is right for me?

The right reddish pink shade for you is going to depend firstly, on your skin tone (more on that later).

You should also consider the outfits you want to wear with your reddish-pink mani.

Reddish pink is not a color that goes with everything.

If you like to wear clothes in neutral colors like black, white, navy, and gray then reddish pink is going to add a nice pop of color to your outfits.

But if you like to wear a lot of icy cool colors like blues, purples and greens then a reddish-pink may not be the best choice to gel with your wardrobe.

Does red-pink nail polish suit everyone?

Most people can wear reddish pink.

It does look most harmonious on those with warm undertones to their skin though.

If you’re not sure what your undertone is, take a look at the veins on your wrist in natural light.

Do they look greenish? Then you have warm undertones.

If they look bluish, then you have cool undertones.

And if you can’t really tell then you probably have neutral undertones.

People with cool undertones can still wear reddish pink but they may want to go for a cooler toned reddish pink.

Tips for choosing the right reddish-pink nail color

Here are some tips for choosing the perfect reddish-pink nail color:

Consider your skin tone.

If you have warm undertones, go for a warmer toned reddish pink.

If you have cool undertones, go for a cooler toned reddish pink.

So, how do you know if a polish has cool or warm tones?

Check the description.

Not all polish brands do a good job at explaining what color is in the bottle, but some do.

Zoya is a great example.

You can easily filter and search for polishes based on whether they are warm or cool on Zoya’s website.

Consider what colors you like to wear.

If you wear a lot of neutrals, then a brighter reddish-pink will add some nice color to your outfits.

But if you like to wear cool colors, then you might want to go for a more muted reddish pink or even a browny-red.

Think about what time of year you’ll be wearing your polish.

Some reddish-pink shades are more seasonal.

If it’s summer, then you might want to go for a brighter reddish pink.

But if it’s fall or winter, then you might want to choose a deeper or more muted shade.

Think about the occasion.

Is this polish for work? A job interview? A casual day out? A night out?

Reddish pink can work for all of these occasions, but some shades are better suited for certain events than others.

A vibrant reddish-pink might be too playful for a job interview, but it could be perfect for a casual day out.

For special occasions, brighter polishes could work really well. You could also go for something with a shimmer or glitter finish.

Shade match

Matching up shades can give you a more cohesive look.

The trick to shade matching is to try to find a reddish pink that is a similar intensity level to your skin tone.

So, if you have fair skin and soft features, go for a light or muted reddish-pink.

If you have medium skin, go for a mid-toned reddish pink.

And if you have dark skin, go for a deep reddish-pink.

Don’t forget to match up the undertones too, cool tones for cool skin and warm tones for warm skin.

You can also use the shade matching trick when choosing what colors to wear with your reddish-pink

What colors go with reddish pink?

For an elegant and sophisticated look, pair reddish pinks with champagne and white.

Fall colors like gold and brown look nice with reddish pink and will create an earthy look.

For a striking contrast, try teal or a dark cyan with reddish-pink.

Bronze, maroon, and greens will all give you a traditional and classic vibe.

For a more modern look, pair reddish pinks with other pink shades or sandy neutrals like beige.
