It’s no secret that your skin tone plays a large role in helping curate the perfect beauty look. From finding your most flattering hair color to determining your ideal skin care routine, your skin tone is a factor you should consider.

Check out these 6 nail polish colors to take your manicure to the next level.
1. Cobalt Blue
Bold, bright colors look amazing on dark skin tones — whether we’re talking makeup, clothes, or nails. For a royal manicure, consider giving cobalt blue nails a try. We particularly love this look during the spring and summer months, but it can be worn at any time of year. To spice things up, play with a lighter shade of blue and a toothpick to create an intricate blue marble nail design.
As far as fall and winter nail colors for dark skin go, taupe is at the top of this list. This brown-meets-gray color will create contrast against your deep skin tone similar to cream nail polish but subtler. Consider pairing it with a gold glitter accent nail for a touch of glitz.
Whether you prefer light gray or charcoal, varying shades of gray are a great option for dark skin tones. Light gray will create a neutral contrast against your deep skin, while charcoal will further emphasize its dark tone. Consider combining the two shades into a two-toned gray manicure for the best of both worlds.
Just like bright, bold shades, soft pastels also create a beautiful contrast against dark skin tones. Try a pretty-in-pink nail look with soft, baby pink polish. You can even rock a half-and-half baby pink and nude accent nail for some subtle detail.
A standout nail color for dark skin, burgundy is a deep and powerful shade often reserved for the colder months of the year. Pair it with a gold or silver metallic accent nail for a manicure you can rock for the holiday season and well into the spring and summer.
A deliciously subtle hue of green, olive has been on trend for a few seasons now. We’ve seen it on everything from loungewear sets and sofas, to eyeshadow palettes and nail polish colors. Switch things up for your new year’s eve mani-pedi and try a cute olive green and black design with gold foil.
