Whether you're looking for a beauty boost or a way to rock this year's latest beauty trend without a major commitment, a mani/pedi is always a good idea. But with a plethora of nail polishes on the market, it can be tricky to choose one that's current and complements your dark skin tone.
"My favorite nail colors to see on dark skin tones are anything citrus," says Rachel James, founder of nail brand Pear Nova, who expects to "see louder statements being made on the nails" in 2021. Don't worry: the trendiest styles are DIY-friendly. "Minimal nail art is hot as more and more people are being creative in the confines of their own space doing their nails," says Gina Edwards, a celebrity nail stylist in New York City. And "investing in at-home nail care treatments is a must," says Kitiya Mischo King, founder of nail line Mischo Beauty, to keep those natural nails strong and healthy.
