The right nail color and the perfect scent are both keys to finishing off a stunning look. But how do you choose the right ones? Here are some tips to help you out:
1. For nail polish, choose one that’s a good match for your skin tone. Since we can’t switch nail colors every day just to match the look for the day, we have to match it to something more constant—our skin tones. Hence, if you have a light skin tone go for pastel and bright colors; for medium to olive tones, orange-reds and peachy-pinks are great options. For those with dark skin tones, high-impact shades are the best choices, such as neon colors, deep reds, dark purples and bright blues.
2. When shopping for perfume, it pays to know your different scent families. These are the following: Oriental/Spicy, Woody/Chypre, Citrus/Fruity/Fresh, and Floral/Sweet. That way, you avoid buying too many scents from one perfume family and you’d know which one to wear based on the climate. For example, you can opt for light floral or fruity scents during summer; then opt for woody or spicy scents during the holiday season. Same goes for matching it to your look—a lighter scent is a great match for a casual getup, while a heavier scent is best for formal affairs.
3. And for the best of both worlds, why not try scented nail polish? As the name suggests, these nail polish don’t just add a pop of color to the tips of your toes and fingers. They also add various scents, from light fruity or sweet ones to deep, dark spicy aromas. Way better than the typical solvent-like smell of traditional nail polish, don’t you think? And to top it off, these scented nail polishes are offered in different shades by several brands, such as Ruby Wing and Revlon. With many options to choose from, you’ll definitely find one to complement your signature scent!
