Red onion skins produce a rich terra-cotta color. Yellow onions skins will give a more golden color and white skins will not give much color at all...sometimes an ivory hue with accents of green and bluish-purple. I use white skins in combination with the others to give spots of white for contrast. If you leave the egg uncovered in spots, the water itself will lend a slight tint - so use the white skin to "mask" the egg.
