"You can always tell a lady by her hands"

Your hands are guaranteed to make an impression regardless of the event, so be sure to 'polish up for the occasion'.

Nail varnish is an easy and inexpensive way to update your look. Yet how does one go about choosing their perfect shade with that immense rainbow of colours out there? Don't fret! To determine the perfect shades for you, just base your decision on skin tone, season and occasion and follow these tips!

Nail colours change with seasons - for summer choose bright, bold & beautiful shades whilst for winter go for darker shades.

As for skin tone, make sure the colour you choose compliments your skin. If you have a fair complexion, blue-based colours are your best bet while yellow-based shades go best with darker skin tones.

For a smart setting such as an interview or work meeting, it is best to go for neutral colours so as not to attract too much attention. For more casual surroundings, don't be afraid to be bold with bright and tropical colours. On the other hand, for evening events, try darker, more intense tones.

Here is a quick guide to choosing the best shades according to skin tones:

Fair ~ berry reds

Medium ~ deep burgundy or wine

Olive/bronze ~ orangey reds, browns or golds

Dark ~ strong reds, deep plums or silver
