The other day I was attempting to pick out a pale lavender nail polish for my own collection. An Easter-egg inspired hue, something I’ve read is very on trend right now. I had 2 colors in my hand and was unsure which one I would LOVE more: one slightly deeper in shade, the other lighter almost as if it had more white pigment mixed in. I as reminded how often in the nail room guests have difficulty committing to one polish color over another that they like. To solve my dilemma, I went to the nail room, removed the existing polish from both my thumbs and gave each one a shade I was trying to choose between. Would you believe that in doing that, I had found a WINNER! The thing is: certain colors are more flattering against some skin tones, while others flatter another skin tone. Where other times, it’s all just really what you love.
So next time you’re in a bind to pick out a color you’ll be staring at for the next few weeks, take time to just polish one nail on each hand!
