Nail polish to make you look tanned

review swatch photo

As the weather is finally picking up I thought it was about time we talked nail polish to make you look more tanned. I think picking the right shade can really enhance a tan and make your nails pop at the same time. 


Any shade lighter than your skin tone is going to make your skin tone pop. Darker shades are going to make it your skin lighter. Bright white nails have been trending in the beauty world over the last year and show no signs of slowing down this summer. Picking a white nail polish is a lot harder than it sounds. You want something opaque and easy to apply. I really like the Models Own Hyper Gel Polish in White Light. It has as glossy gel inspired finish but if you applied the Models Own Matte Topcoat it would add an even slicker modern finish.


Cool toned pastels will add warmth to the skin and give the illusion of a deeper, darker tan. I absolutely love mint polish - there are more minty lacquers in my stash than any other shade. However not all polishes are created equally and my mint polish pick is the cult beauty blogger classic Essie Mint Candy Apple. It’s just the perfect mint, not too pale and not too green. Lovely.


A neon shade in your summer nail polish line up is a must. These really make the skin stand out. In fact Models Own created a whole line up of nail polishes specifically designed for tanned skin. You can read my full review of the range here but my favourite shade is Models Own Beach Bag. A zingy full bodied true neon orange with a slightly matte finish,


My Mum swears by gold toned nail polish when we go away. Her talons are never not adorned with the shimmering shade. I struggle to wear colours like that but there is no denying they look great next to tanned skin. I’d opt for something more glitter based like the new Revlon Gold Goddess nail polish. It’s a unique rosy gold glitter polish that can be worn alone or as a topcoat.

    1. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

      My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in London UK.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his ,or kindly visit he website .

  26. Always wear white nail polish when I want to look more tan, it is definitely a go-to colour!

  27. I'm normally the sort of person who hates going for the same nail polish time after time but recently I keep reaching for Essie's Fiji, it's white enough to really make your tan stand out but the pinky tint makes it a bit more white-phobe friendly!


  28. Thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family?

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{} , Thanks.
