For Mature hands basically you can’t go wrong with Pearly or Metallic Whites for younger looking hands. Fair skin should go for Pearly or Bright pinks for a fresher look.

For Medium skin Pearly or Bright pinks as well as Orange based reds. For dark skin go for a Poppy Pinks, Neon Oranges or a Mint Green which looks great
