6 Nail Colors Perfect For Dark Skin Tone

Out of all the decisions that must be made in a day, choosing a nail color may not be the most difficult. But with so many shadow options, this can be time-consuming. Fortunately, the wide range of color options makes it fun to find a hue that suits your skin tone. Another day, another new nail polish was released. And brown-skinned beauties, there are colors that suit you. The most suitable nail colors for dark skin tones cover almost all shades of the rainbow. It’s true, no shade will look bad on your melanin-rich skin. High-impact shades contrast with dark skin tones, and deep, sexy shades look natural.

If you generally stick with the same nail tones for your dark skin, don’t worry, you can’t go wrong with having a little fun. We all feel guilty about being used to our favorite nail shades. However, allow yourself to try brighter and more vibrant shades that match your dark skin tone or with neutral tones that are right for your skin.

You can choose any manicure color you want. But there are certain shades that look so lovely on deeper skin tones that they deserve a special call-out. In my opinion, bold, rich shades really pop on dark skin. The popularity of nail shades depends on the season, but overall she finds clients with darker skin gravitating towards Earth and jewel tones like cobalt blue, hunter green, and bright orange.

People tend to think that warm and dark colors work best on darker skin. In my opinion, a brighter color always adds an HD contrast. Some people have so many favorite shades but if I had to narrow it down I would include warm terracotta, rosy tan, navy, and deep sage greens.

With those in mind, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite bold nail polishes for medium and deep skin tones. If you’re looking to change up your usual go-to nail color, give these colors a try.

  1. Cobal Blue (O.P.I)

2. Hunter Green (Zoya)


Mimi D’s personal favorite is this hunter green shade from Zoya. It’s a bold olive green that really pops against medium to deep skin tones. 

3. Festival Fever (Pear Nova)


Another personal pick from Mimi D, this orange is a great alternative to the dark and moody shades we normally pick during the colder months. It will make you smile every time you look down at your hands.

4. Brigitte (Zoya)


This rosy beige brings out the warmer undertones in medium to deep skin. It’s subtle but gorgeous and will be your new go-to nude mani shade.

5. Souq up the sun (Essie)


6. Cherry Red (Sally Hansen)


You can’t go wrong with the classic cherry red for dark skin, especially when it comes to a pedicure, because it looks amazing with any sandals.
