Choosing a suitable nail color for dark skin tone can be a big challenge in your make-up routine.

We’ve compiled for you the top three bold and beautiful manicure trends that will complement your dark skin tone and leave you slaying like the queen you are.

Jelly nails have made a big impression in manicure trends because they scream sass and class! The best part about this trend is that you can make it yourself at home if you don’t have time to visit the salon. Just apply a thin coat of your favorite color and top it up with a layer of clear jelly polish. The result is a vibrant see-through nail-do that gives your dark skin tone an instant glow. Cool shades like baby pink, mellow orange and sky blue are perfect shades of jelly nail color for dark skin tones.


Paint the town neon!

If color is art, then neon color is the masterpiece! If you want to make your hands a stunning masterpiece, use your dark skin tone as a prop for bright neon tips. Select bright and fun colors like lime green, hot pink or neon yellow. If you’re not sure which color to pick, wear them all in a pastel rainbow. And if you’re too conscious about very bright colors, pick a classy cobalt blue. You will be amazed by the contrast it will make on your dark skin tone.


Metallic nail art


Metallic nail art gives your mani a long lasting classic glow.

When it comes to bold trends in nail color for dark skin tone, metallic nail designs come top on the list. Not only do metallic shades last longer; they also give an elegant and sophisticated finish to your outfit. To make a bold statement, paint the entire nail in a full metallic shade. For a more subtle look, use a matte polish color and top it up with rhinestones, stick-on foil or other gorgeous metallic bling. 

After doing your gorgeous manicure, make sure to hydrate your hands throughout the day using hand cream, water based moisturizer and then apply cuticle oil to lock the moisture in. Remember, dried-out nail polish tends to look dull, and dry hands will ruin your manicure. So, color up, hydrate and slay!
