During the summer season, most women like to wear bright pink nails. However, before you decide which pink color to use, it’s important that you consider your hair color and the skin tone. A bright pink color stands out against tanned skin.
Maintaining your pink nails
Having healthy nails adds preeminent appeal to your identity. In addition, they add supreme charm to your overall look. Having broken nails or bleeding cuticles can be your worst nightmare. It’s recommended that you incorporate regular grooming and cleaning into your routine. Let me walk you through the general care and maintenance tips of your pink nails;
This involves giving yourself a spa treatment at home. First, get a dish with warm water, then add one tablespoon of salt. You can go a step further and add lemon in the mixture in case your nails have started to change the color. Secondly, you should deep your hands into the solution for about 7 minutes. Once you’re done, you should scour your hands by splashing them with water. It’s good to note that, exfoliating makes the skin soft, so it becomes easier to remove cuticles around your nails. To ensure you remove the cuticles without harming yourself physically, it’s advisable that you use a cuticle pusher with a rubber grip.
· Gloss your nails
Just like your skin, your pink nails will need glossing. The first thing you need to do is to get a sharp clipper to trim and file the nails. Filing should be done in one direction since filing back and forth is likely to damage your nails. You should then buffer your nails by applying a gloss that will not interfere with the pink color. The natural color of your nails will be maintained.
· Moisturize your hands
Apply fingernail oil that is rich in vitamins A, C and E. Moisturizing should be done on the cuticles and the nails. When properly done, the cuticle oil will boost the growth of your hands while still maintaining the pink color. To add a reflexive sparkle, you can massage your whole hand. Lastly, wrap your hands with a clean dump towel for about 10 minutes to give your hands more comfort. Wipe the oil and you’re done. Repeat the same procedure once a week to maintain healthy pink nails.
How to choose the right pink color for your nails
Are you uncertain which pink color will make you look the best? It’s good to note that, although there are varieties of pink colors to choose from, not all of them will work for you. The following is an all-inclusive guide to help you choose the best color that complements your look;
· Identify your skin tone
If you want your pink nails to stand out, you must be aware of your skin tone. It’s recommended that you wear a lighter shade if you have a light skin tone. Similarly, those who have a darker skin tone should wear darker pink colors.
· Test the colors
To see how the color will look on your nail, you can test it first on a piece of paper.
· Consider the occasion
Before you decide on the pink color shade to apply on your nails, you should consider whether you’re attending a business function or it’s for casual purposes.
By understanding the nail anatomy, you have no reason not add a supreme charm to your overall look.
