Cheat Sheets

Allure offers a few handy nail guides for better, brighter, healthier nails.

Flattering Colors

Fair skin tones look great with bright pinks and corals, like Essie’s Mod Squad and Sally Hansen’s Shell We Dance. Medium skin tones are beautiful with jewel-toned polishes like OPI’s Just a Little Rosti at This. Darker skin tones look lovely with orange and blue polishes, like Essie’s Vermillionaire and OPI’s Ogre-the-Top Blue. Lastly, reds are great on all skin tones but royal purple is becoming a new universally-flattering shade.

Smart Tools

Some great tools to keep on hand are nonacetone polish remover, fine-grit emery boards, cuticle-oil pens, foot files like Sally Hansen’s Sole Control 2-Step Foot File, heavy creams like Barielle’s Heel and Callus Treatment cream, ridge-filling base coat like Essie’s Ridge Filling Base Coat and a quick-dry top coat like Seche Vite’s.

Luxurious Touches

To made at-home pedicures feel more luxurious, try adding Epsom salts or essential oils to your footbath, use a sugar-based scrub for exfoliation, apply a hydrating foot mask like OPI Pedicure Mask, and try applying a paraffin wax treatment.
