Choosing a nail shade shouldn’t be that difficult; there are a bunch of hues that are made keeping the Indian skin tone in mind. It’s 21st century, and some people are still into the idea of “fair and lovely.” But for all you dusky beauties, only you know that you are beautiful inside out.

Nail Polish Colours For Dusky Skin Tone
1. Coco Bean
If you are looking for nude polish, we recommend sticking to brownish nudes rather than pinkish nudes. Pink nudes can make your dark skin look dull and even darker in some cases.
Coco Bean is a beautiful light brown shade that is very flattering for dusky skin tone. The key here is always going for a shade that is visibly lighter than your skin. That’s how you find your perfect nude nail polish!
