Cool, warm, warmer…

Let’s move beyond a game of hot-cold and delve into the world of undertones. By observing and understanding your undertones, we can determine the color temperature of your skin. Undertones play a significant role in how your skin appears in natural light, accounting for the variation you may notice between changing room lighting and pure sunshine. Undertones are typically categorized as warm (yellow or golden), cool (red, pink, or blue), or neutral (a blend). So, how do you identify your undertone and choose the perfect pairings? Let’s find out.

Take a moment to acquaint yourself with your skin under bright natural light, focusing on the color of the veins on your wrist. If they appear bluish-purple, chances are you have cool undertones. If they lean towards a greener hue, you are likely warm-toned, and if it’s challenging to determine, you may have neutral undertones. Keep this in mind as we proceed.

An additional helpful indicator is your choice of jewelry. If your skin is enhanced by silver jewelry, it suggests you have cool undertones. On the other hand, if gold jewelry truly illuminates your skin, it indicates warm undertones. And for those fortunate individuals whose complexion shines with both, consider yourself lucky to have neutral undertones.

It pays to be picky.

When selecting your neutral nail polish, it’s essential to align with your temperature/tonal range (warm, cool, or neutral). To add a touch of contrast to your complexion, consider exploring shades that are slightly deeper or lighter than your actual skin color within your tonal group. This subtle variation within your chosen range can create an exquisite and harmonious look.

Consider your cool, warm, or neutral undertones and opt for shades that harmonize with your complexion. Experiment with variations slightly lighter or deeper than your skin color to create contrast and enhance your natural beauty. Choose wisely and let your nails radiate with the perfect neutral polish.
