The Right Red Nail Polish
Q: I love red nail polish, but not all reds look good on my skin. Any suggestions?
A: Find your best hue with these pointers from New York manicurist Deborah Lippman. If your skin is dark or has golden undertones, bright, true reds look best. To make pink skin look less ruddy, use lighter orange-reds. If you're pale, the contrast of a blue-red is striking. Before polishing, make sure to apply a base coat to prevent stains from setting in.
