Getting your nails done is bliss, or at least, it should be! You should be able to choose your colours with confidence - knowing that you’re going to walk out of the salon looking fab! And that’s where we step in to help. 
“Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, it’s handy to know that light colours radiate elegance, while dark nail colors give off a bolder look.”
Here Are 5 of Our Favorite Cute Nail Colours to Suit Dark Skin Tones (No Matter the Season)
1. Pink Polish

If you’re a sucker for pink, you’ll want to wear it right. For example, avoid light baby pinks that will blend into your natural nail pigmentation. Instead, Elle suggests leaning towards more neon or bright fuchsia pinks.[1]
2. Purple Polish

Both pastel and darker shades of purple will bedazzle darker hands and feet. The choice is yours; are you looking for a dainty, mauve pastel purple or would you like to emphasize a bold and daring dark burgundy?
3. Blue Polish

The key to wearing blue nail polish is to avoid white undertones. Instead, learn to embrace the bluest of blues - the bright cobalt shades that can really stand out on your skin. 
4. Nude Polish

Nude nail polish on dark skin tones emanates a beautiful feminine effect. Look out for light nude colours that are beige or cream-like shades. Both matt and shiny nude shades look great on darker skin, so, the choice is yours.
5. Red Polish

Almost all red nail polish colours look amazing on deeply tanned skin – so, we encourage you to play around with the different shades. Think of what type of mood you’re in. Are you feeling brazen and up for a daredevil red? Perhaps summer is calling for something more coral? Or maybe you’ll flaunt a vintage look and stick to wine-red hues? 
What about Neons?
Neons look fantastic on all skin tones. If you’re feeling funky, head for bright neon colours such as orange, yellow, and bright fuchsia. These shades are always safe and will give your hands a young, eccentric look and feel. When in doubt, go for neon - you won’t regret it!

What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
