Neutral nail shades for dark brown skin must reflect brown and earthy hues. It's important to choose rich colors to complement your skin or airy colors to contrast it. When picking out the perfect neutral nail shade look for the hues that allow your complexion to shine and appear rich and glowing.
Dark brown nails are perfect for your complexion. A dark brown skin tone will be complemented and enhanced by a neutral nail color that reflects and mimics it. Select a chocolate shade to really lengthen your fingers and strengthen the richness in your skin tone.
Taupe is the chic neutral tone that sits between grey and brown. This color is lighter and more airy than dark brown but has the same rich earth undertones that allow your complexion to glow. Select a chic taupe nail shade to really empower your skin and add to the depth of your complexion.
A very light beige is perfect for neutral nails. Select a cool beige to highlight the warmth of your complexion. A warmer beige will help you strengthen the warmth of your skin. Beige works because it has the same base tones as your complexion. Beige is also a good color for office nails or even an afternoon lunch date.
Nude pink is a good color because it remains neutral while adding a hint of feminine sparkle. The pink will subtly highlight the red undertones in rich brown skin and add a pretty edge to simple nude nails. Nude pink nails work well in flesh shades and will simply add to a rich dark brown complexion by exposing the deep red undertones.
