Cherry red nails
For those who do not want to give up red nails but have a light complexion and do not like to tan, the most suitable shade is cherry red.

Since this is a rather flamboyant shade, which therefore does not go unnoticed, it is necessary that the nails are perfectly cured. Better if not too long, on the form instead of maximum freedom. This color also lends itself well to more extravagant summer manicures. Like the mismatched which involves applying a different color to each nail. It can be made with different shades of orange-red or other colors. Or you can apply a contrasting color on a single nail by hand, such as fuchsia.
