The 5 Prettiest Pink Nail Polish Shades
A blog about pink nails and the different shades of pink on the market.
For us ladies the one thing that can really make or break your outfit is your manicure. A bold red color may not match everything but it will definitely draw attention to you. The same can be said for a bright pink or purple. Perhaps though you don’t feel comfortable drawing that much attention to yourself, maybe a nice nude shade would be best for you. Whatever your preference is there are many different shades of nail polish out there for you to choose from. I will attempt to explore some options below…
The 5 Prettiest Pink Nail Polish Shades
Piggy Paint: A mom and daughter team invented a non-toxic polish that comes in a variety of colors, including this pink called “Princess in Pink.” The hypoallergenic formula is odorless and made without chemical solvents. Bonus: It’s not tested on animals!
China Glaze Nail Polish in Medium Pink: A soft pink shade that’s perfect for summer. We love the pale color and glossy finish. Plus, this polish is great for women with short nails because it doesn’t chip easily!
OPI In True Stefani Fashion: This polish has a cute name and a fun color. The mauve-y pink color looks great on all skin tones and lasts for days without chipping.
Nails Inc. Chelsea Embankment Place: This pretty polish is perfect for summer weddings or any other dressy occasion. The shiny metallic finish adds a hint of glamor to any outfit!
Essie Tart Deco: This bright coral polish was one of the hottest nail colors of the summer! It’s perfect if you’re getting married around Valentines Day because it has just enough red to make it festive without being too holiday specific.
While you can’t go wrong with classic red nails, pink french nails add a touch of femininity to your fingertips. “Pink is the nail color that never gets old,” says Deborah Lippmann, celebrity manicurist and founder of Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer. “It’s fresh and modern, but it’s also romantic and timeless.”
When it comes to picking out the perfect shade of pink, you have a lot of options. “Pink can be such a personal color because it can range from feminine to edgy,” says celebrity manicurist Elle. “A soft pink looks very pretty on shorter nails, while a bright fuchsia looks cool on long nails.” If you’re not sure which hue is best for your skin tone, choose one with blue undertones (it will look brighter). Warm complexions look best in shades with yellow undertones (they’ll look softer).
