Nail Polishes That Would Look Great on Dark Skin

Let’s admit it – some nail paints that look great on fair hands may not come out too well on dark or brown hands. There are some nail polishes that bring out the beauty of dark hands.  My favorite nail polish colors are from Lotus Herbals – they have all beautiful and unique colors and are acetone, DBP, and toulene free.  My word of advice is whenever you pick polishes – check for “toulene, DBP, formaldehyde, acetone free” tags because various researches have established that these toxic chemicals can cause hormonal imbalances, asthma, and other adverse effects on health.  So, all nail paint lovers, be aware! Coming back to the topic, let’s see some of the nail colors that would look awesome on dark hands. So, without further ado, let’s get directly to the post:

5.  Essie Nail Lacquer – In the Cab-ana:  This shade is called a “self-assured aqua azure.” It is a bright medium blue shade. There is a slight hint of aqua also.  Though the shade is very pretty, it may make your hands look slightly darker, but dark hands would rock this color, try it!

  1. Superb post as always….me being a dusky skin toned woman, always wear nudes & pastels on my nails….never tried d vibrant shades u hav mentioned *scared* .wil definitly gv them a try this time…bookmarking it jomol…

  2. Nice compilation! Pastels look really good on dark skin the same way berries look great on lighter tones. But life is too short to be bind our choices by skin colour 😀 Besides, every colour looks great on good skin whatever be it’s tone.

  3. aweeesome post jomo. i am totally drooling over the silver and green nail paints!!! I think when you wear nail paints you want them to work for your complexion and not everything works..ofcourse you can have fun with all the colors but for people who want to have options other than neutral shades i think it is an awesome compilations. *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap*

  4. Thanx a ton Jomol for such a gr8 post. I m wheatish toned and have few nail paints that luk gud on my hanfs. I am bookmarking this page, will definitely read dis before buying.

  5. Thank you so much Jomol. I am a dusky skinned girl who thinks 10 times before buying a nail colour. Your post has given me an idea about colours that might look good on me.

  6. hi,

    Awesome post!
    But my problem is that no nail paint stays on my nails longer. It will automatically removed from my nails within a day or 2 days, which feel very bad to me..

    What i can do for this.
