{October 16, 2013}   Best Blue Colour For U Darlings…#BeautyisU

Feeling blue? We’re not talking about your mood or the weather—it’s all about your nails! From Revlon’s new denim-inspired collection to the stunning navy polish at L.A.M.B’s spring/summer fashion show—this is the hue of season! There are a myriad of shades—light denim, moody blue-gray, icy aqua, and deep navy—but which do you choose? I spoke with celebrity manicurist for Red Carpet Manicure, Elle (Jennifer Lopez is a client!) and Deborah Lippmann (who has worked with Sarah Jessica Parker and Reese Witherspoon) to find out which moody blue suits your skin tone best.

FAIR SKIN TONE

If you’ve got fair skin like the stunning Amanda Seyfried, “stick with a lighter shade such as baby blue or aqua,” suggests Elle. “After you’ve applied polish, check the coloration of your skin near the cuticle,” adds Deborah. “If it looks reddish or gray, that shade isn’t the right one for you.” Fair skinned Beauties can also wear a navy polish, but the deep manicure looks better if there is still a hint of blue, as opposed to hues that veer closer to black.

 

MEDIUM SKIN TONE

A basic rule of thumb is to pick a polish that shares the same undertones as your skin color. “Women with a medium complexion should stick with blue shades that have warmer undertones” says Elle. “I love a blue with a purple undertone, as it tends to pick up the warmer highlights in girls with honey-toned skin—like Jennifer Lopez. A teal polish is also a great option.”

 DARK SKIN TONE

Let’s hear a cheer for navy nails! This popular color looks stunning on Beauties with darker skin tones, especially in polishes with a hint of sparkle. “Or, they can even try a very dark blue-gray—like my Stormy Weather—which looks ultra-sophisticated,” says Deborah. “Just make sure you stay away from lighter blues, which can make your skin look chalky,”adds Elle.
