Something Classy

When it comes to choosing your nail polish colour, you should always think about whether it would match your look or not. The best colours are those that have been tried and tested through time--red and neutral shades such as cream white, beige, and nude. You can even go for salmon and peach colours for a dainty feel. They go well for both your everyday looks and glam events!

Dark and Edgy

Dark shades such as velvet black, maroon, grey, and dark blue are shades perfect for parties and girls' night-outs. It's also a way to make a statement with your nails as they look edgier compared to other shades. 

Shiny And Sparkly

For the whimsical, fun, and adventurous days, a sparkly nail colour is what you need. It looks sweet and dainty over a pink or purple base coat, while a darker base coat amps it up for an edgier shimmery look. You can even try a colourless shimmery nail laquer on its own for a subtle, glamorous feel!

Bright And Loud

For a happy and loud statement, go for bright, bold, and neon colours. It may have to take some guts to wear this off-season; but since it's still trending, these colours are definitely in! You can also match this with your retro looks or wear it to add a pop of colour to your monochrome outfit.
