Red is just the first choice to be made. There are several red polishes will look best with your skin tone.

Red shades with a touch of blue are ideal for fair skin, which tends to have cooler undertones. “A classic red — think crimson or cardinal — contrast with pale skin just enough to leave your hands looking crisp and clean,” says Sally Hansen nail artist Madeline Poole. If you want to go a bit darker, try a rich raspberry or make a statement with a deep cherry red.

If your skin looks naturally sun-kissed all year round (or you have a love affair with self-tanner), you likely fall into this category. Your skin’s warm undertones help make bright corals and pinky-reds — colours that can highlight blotchiness in light skin tones — look especially flattering on your nails.

“Olive skin is one of the few tones that look amazing with warm, bright reds,” says Poole. For a classic look, try a tomato-red polish (it’ll offset green hues that can sometimes stand out in olive skin). Or go bold with a vibrant, tangerine-based red.

“Deep, vampy burgundies give a beautiful contrast to dark skin without looking too harsh,” says Poole. If dramatic isn’t your style, try a few coats of an opaque purple-red. “A translucent red may look dull on dark skin, so look for a dense pigment with hints of coral and white,” Poole explains.
