Best Brown Nail Polishes
Brown is an awesome fall nail polish color, but it can be difficult to find a good neutral/brown nail polish color if you have fair skin. TOO dark of a color can look too harsh on fair skin.
Fortunately, there are a TON of brown nail polish colors to choose from online. It can almost be overwhelming!
Below are the best brown nail polishes for fair skin that I’m loving right now.
7 Best Brown Nail Polishes for Fair Skin
These brown nail polishes look amazing on women with fair skin.
Want to know my favorite brown nail polish for fair skin? The Essie Light as Linen brown nail polish is the best brown nail polish for fair skin in my opinion.
1. ILNP Birthday Suit
This is the lightest of the brown nail polishes for fair-skinned women on this top 7 list. It’s more of a cashmere pink/nude nail polish, but it looks like a bright brown if you do multiple coats.
I love the sparkles and this nail polish is vegan and non-toxic.
2. OPI Linger Over Coffee
This darker, neutral brown nail polish is perfect for fall. It’s a nice, soft brown and looks great on fair skin.
3. Eternal Collection of Light Brown and Nude Nail Polish
This set of brown and nude nail polishes is my go-to for brown nail polishes for fall.
All four colors in this collection of fall nail polishes look great!
4. OPI How Great Is Your Dane?
If you want a true dark brown nail polish and have fair skin, then check out How Great Is Your Dane? nail polish by OPI.
This darker brown is great for fall and winter. It works for summer too as a great toenail polish color.
5. Essie Mid-Day Mocha
This light brown nail polish looks good on fair skin and is a great color for fall. It reminds me of coffee and lattes!
6. Jolie Follow Your Heart
Follow Your Heart by Jolie is the perfect nude and light brown nail polish color for fair skin.
Women love nail polish by Jolie because it is non-toxic and vegan. Plus, it looks really good with just one or two coats!
7. Essie Light as Linen
This sparkly, light brown nail polish is perfect for fair skin.
The Essie Light as Linen nail polish is probably my favorite brown nail polish for fair skin because it's not too dark! The Essie Light as Linen nail polish also has a nice sparkle to it.
The Best Base Coat and Top Coat Nail Polish
Before using ANY of the brown nail polishes for fair skin above, it’s helpful to use a base coat of nail polish and a top coat of nail polish.
Base Coat Nail Polishes
A base coat of nail polish makes your nail polish last longer and helps to protect your nails and prevent staining.
You don’t need to use an expensive base coat. I personally stick to the base coats by OPI.
Top Coat Nail Polishes for Fair Skin
A top coat makes your nails look shiny and helps to prevent chipping of the nail polish.
I personally use the OPI or the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat nail polish.
