Best Nail Colours for Tanned Skin

These Are the Nail Colours for Darker Skin Tones

Beauticians offer a dazzling range of colours in both gels and acrylics. With so much to choose from, it can feel like a daunting task to find the nail polish that looks best for tanned skin. The good news is there’s a range of colours that will suit your skin tone and flatter your complexion in different ways. The range of colours is not so narrow that it’s limiting or so broad that it’s overwhelming.

If you’re looking for freshness and energy, it’s pinks and purples for you. A rich violet shade looks wonderful against dark skin, while a warm pink suits olive tones. Try out our purple nail polishes that would absolutely pop on your skintone.

Ocean Sand Blue Steel Nail Polish


For a balmy Australian evening, choose a more neutral shade. Your hands will look delightfully elegant as you hold your glass. For olive skin, the pinker end of the beige chart will suit you, whereas for darker skin the browner shades look better. We offer a range of pastel nail polishes in Australia that we are sure you will love.

Pastel Nail Polish Pack

The trick to finding the best nail colours for your tan skin tone is to know your undertones. Olive skin usually has neutral undertones, but any skin tone can have cool or warm undertones. Consider whether you look better in silver or gold. If silver suits you more, you likely have cool undertones. If it’s gold, you probably have warm undertones. Our fabulous metallic gold nail polish has your name all over it.
