Best Nail Colors For Aging Hands
Our hands are tattle tales. They tell every stranger on the street our age-a secret best left on our passports and driver's licenses. Hold on though, before you go and disown them, or cut them out of the trust fund or will, remember, they've done the dirty work all your life and typically don't receive the same amount of dotting attention you allot to your precious face.
Sun spots, crepey skin, and yellowing nails make your hands look old. If hyperpigmentation and sun spots are bothersome, you can always try a product with hydroquinone to lighten them, or see a plastic surgeon for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to laser them away. But if you are looking for a quick way to de-age your hands, your best bet is in the bottle-a bottle of nail polish that is.
Jan Arnold, style director and founder of CND, says the easiest way to mask the look of the hands is with a bold color. "Keep [the color] opaque and vibrant. A really gorgeous color on the nail steals all the attention, so if you're trying to camouflage the look of the hand, go bold." The colors to steer clear of: "Beige, clear, or a sheer nail," says Arnold.
CND Shellac has some vibrant new gel manicure colors out for spring and we also love the latest Essie 2012 Spring Collection including Tour de Finance, which is a bright fuchsia and Orange, it's Obvious, a headstrong orange.
