If you're one of the lucky few with pale skin, you probably already know that finding the perfect nail color is no easy feat. Not only do you have to worry about whether the shade will complement your skin tone, but you also have to consider whether it will make your hands look even paler. To save you the trouble, we asked expert manicurists to weigh in on the best nail colors for pale skin. From classic reds to trendy metallics, these are the shades they swear by.

"There's a reason why so many women gravitate towards red nail polish—it's timeless and flattering on every skin tone," says Kait Mosh, founder of KAILO Beauty. "For those with pale skin, I recommend choosing a poppy or cherry red shade with blue undertones." Kait recommends essie's "all Fired Up" as the perfect shade of red for pale skinned ladies.

If you're not into bold shades, don't worry—there are still plenty of options that will complement your pale complexion. "I always recommend pink polish to women with fair skin," says Sarah Gibson Tuttle, founder and CEO of Olive & June. "Pink is unexpected and fresh for spring, and it looks beautiful against ghostly complexions." Sarah's go-to shade of pink is JINsoon's "Crossover."

"Metallic polish is having a moment right now, and there's no better time to try it out than spring," says Gina Oh, celebrity manicurist and co-founder of TRUCO Beauty. "For those with pale skin, I recommend using silver or gold polish as an accent nail or going for a full-on metallic mani." Gina's favorite metallic shade is Tom Ford Beauty's "Bitter Bitch."
