But before we help you pick out the trendiest shades of nail polish for dusky skin, let's take a look at what you need to keep in mind for choosing the best nail polish colours for dark skin.

Know Your Undertone

If you are a makeup fanatic, you must have heard the word undertone a zillion times! Not to forget the 101s of colour theory. But if you are a newbie, let us quickly introduce you to this concept that governs all foundation, concealer and lipstick choices! Generally, there are three undertones – warm, cool and neutral. Cool undertones are characterised by blue or purplish veins on the wrists whereas green veins dominate warm undertones. If you have a mix of both green and blue veins, your undertone is neutral. Most dusky beauties belong to the warm undertone category although a few cool or neutral undertone exceptions do exist. 

Know Your Skin Type

To pick the perfect nail polish that suits dark skin, make sure to put your skin texture and moisture levels under tight scrutiny. If you have dry skin, it is best to avoid shades that are shimmery and reflect light flecks. Pearly nail polish for dusky skin that is rough and flaky text is also a choice best avoided. If premature signs of ageing like wrinkles have already hit your hands, steer clear of dark nail polish shades. Instead opt for light, fresh and elegant shades that will impart a youthful look to your hands.
