The best way to spruce up your beauty routine is with a fresh manicure. And no matter what color you favor, there’s one shade that looks good on everyone, according to Sarah Gibson Tuttle, chief executive officer and founder of Olive & June.
“We love a neutral mani any time of year,” Tuttle tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “We love neutrals that have a lot of white in them as they are the most flexible and flattering, because they create a bright, but subtle contrast. It's a done-but-not-so-done look that looks pulled together day or night.”
A cool neutral can lend itself to nude, mauve or taupe colors, depending on what suits your skin tone; however, neutrals don’t have to feel plain, adds Tuttle.
“When we decided to start treating light shades of blue and lavender and pinks as neutrals at the salon, a whole world of mani possibilities opened up,” she says. In fact, the Olive & June founder says a touch of pastel makes the perfect summer neutral.
From classic neutrals to playful pops of color, keep scrolling to shop some of the best neutral nail polish colors to wear all summer long.
“For lighter skin tones that don't have an olive undertone — one of the hardest skin tones to ‘match’ color with — we love MM the most,” says Tuttle.
If you favor a sheer finish, OPI’s classic Bubble Bath goes on sheer, but a third coat gives a more opaque finish. Either way, a gorgeous neutral.
“We created a range of modern neutrals that we think look really, really good on everyone. From the collection, I am loving our new Nail Polish in CDJ, a cool, creamy neutral that plays nice with all skin tones,” adds Tuttle.
With a hint of rose, this beautiful nude pink hue flatters all skin tones.
This Essie classic is the perfect shade of nude and taupe — it’s a cool and timeless neutral that will never go out of style.
“For more of a pop of color, our Nail Polish in BP is the shade that unexpectedly goes with everything,” says Tuttle. “The amount of white in it really makes it feel icy, fresh, and sophisticated and makes it easy to wear.”
