Red is the name of the game this holiday season and we are bringing you all of the best red fashion and beauty finds we can! Red nail polish is bold, sexy and sophisticated; it is also undeniably classic.
For those of you who are a little shy to wear this bright color, here's a little guide to help you find the right hue for you!
- Dark or olive skin: Wear a true red
- Fair skin: Wear a blue-ish red - it will warm your skin tone up nicely
- Pink-ish skin: Wear a orange/red shade
Here are my favorite picks for these skin tones:
Essie A-List, $7, is the perfect shade for those of you with dark or olive skin. This is a gorgeous and glamorous true red which also happens to be one of their best sellers!
Rescue Beauty Lounge Long Wear Nail Polish in Chinoise, $18, is a lovely shade for those with fair skin. It's a deeper, darker red with blue undertones that will liven up your skin. This happens to be a favorite shade of mine for winter!
For a drugstore brand,
Cover Girl Queen Collection 3-in-1 Step Nail Polish in Regal Red, $2.79 is an excellent choice for pink-ish skin since it has a tomatoey, orange hint to it. This inexpensive polish is great because it is a basecoat, color and topcoat all in one! Also, think about it this way: if you don't like the color, you won't feel like you've wasted a lot of money on it. I'm willing to bet you'll love it so much your next order will be in bulk though! Enjoy!
