7 Nail Polish Colors Every Woman Should Own

1/8 ,

Each season calls for new polish trends. For fall, deep jewel tones and crisp reds and oranges are all the rage. When spring hits, soft pastels come into style. But instead of swapping out old shades for of-the-moment colors—a surefire way to end up with a bucket full of barely used bottles—stock your collection with these shades we love. They flatter all skin tones and can be worn any time of year.

Classic Red

This traditional color never goes out of style—and it’s appropriate for the office or a night out. Try OPI Big Apple Red ($8.50, amazon.com).

We love a good neutral; they’re subtle and flatter any outfit. Go for taupe; the darker nude works on all skin tones. Deborah Lippmann Fashion ($18, deborahlippmann.com) is a creamy polish that goes on smoothly in one swipe.

Light Pink

A pale pink is universally flattering—just use as many coats as you need to find your perfect pastel. Essie Ballet Slippers ($8, essie.com) is a gorgeous sheer formula that makes nails appear longer.

Bright Pink

A bright pink is more classic than trendy—so you can wear it season after season. We love Butter London Cake-Hole Nail Lacquer ($15, butterlondon.com) because it's bright but not too bold.

Black can be a little edgy for some people, but navy is a dark polish option that doesn’t come off as gothic. Chanel Le Vernis in 631 Orage ($27, chanel.com) flatters pale and dark tones alike.

Opaque white is the perfect hue for all seasons. In the summer it highlights a tan, while in the winter it has that snow bunny effect. JINsoon Kookie White ($18, sephora.com) has a hint of gray so it’s more flattering on lighter skin tones.

Whether it’s a dark smoky gray like Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Evelyn ($18, sephora.com) or heather gray like Nars Galathée Opaque Nail Polish ($20, amazon.com), the color has a soft, polished finish.
