Color varnish: what to navigate?
Before you buy another bright bottle, you should think about how, when and with what you will wear this varnish. If its shade does not fit your clothes, lipstick and the usual colors of makeup, then it is better to refuse to buy, even if you really liked the varnish. With the kodi professional gel polish this is important.
• Choose a varnish on the basis of your usual shade of lipstick: their color matching is still considered stylish
• In addition, the color of the varnish should look harmonious with your skin, so remember a few simple rules
• Bright shades of pink and red are perfect for owners of light skin, but they are better off with golden, green and light blue tones
• With olive skin, silver, metallic blue and pink will become the ideal colors, and blue and purple are best avoided
Ladies with medium skin tones should not paint their nails in too light colors, in this case dark saturated wine tones will be best, as well as bright yellow and blue colors;
Dark-haired young ladies will get almost all shades, but it’s better to refuse bronze lacquer – it looks unattractive against the background of dark skin.
It is also worth remembering that the same shade of varnish is hardly suitable for a business meeting, a friendly party and a gala evening. Stock up on these cases in different colors to at any time is fully armed. And do not forget that whatever the shade of lacquer, it will look good only on well-groomed nails. Therefore, do a manicure and remove the cuticle at least once every three weeks, otherwise your hands will become unkempt.
How to determine the quality of varnish?
The easiest and most reliable way to purchase high-quality nail polish is to buy a product of a famous brand. Large firms value their reputation too much to add low-quality components to their varnishes. Therefore, it is better to overpay a little for guaranteeing the health of your nails than to save a few dozen rubles and then spend a lot of money on restoring the nail plate destroyed by the aggressive coating.
Before making a purchase, be sure to consider the bottle in detail: it should not have cracks and chips. The bottom should be even and steady. The shape of the vial should preferably be without bends. Buying varnishes, packaged in curly packages, you risk becoming the owner of the product, which will soon change the texture due to the fact that some of the components are unevenly distributed along the walls of the bottle.
