Some popular nail polish colors are Giorgio Armani "402," which is a classic shade of red, a pink and purple shade called "Passione" by Dolce and Gabana and an icy blue color called "Kip" by Butter London, says InStyle. Another popular color is "High Street" by Nails Inc., which is a deep berry purple.
Other popular colors include a sea green color by OPI called "Withstands the Test of Thyme" and "Imperial Blue" by Burberry. Others are a sheer bisque color called "Like Dreamers Do" and a magenta color called "Between the Sheets," which are both by Deborah Lipman, according to InStyle.
Fashion experts suggest pairing nail polish colors with skin tone. Pastels and bright colors best complement light skin tones. Examples of these nail polish colors are a classic red or any shade of pink, lavender or navy blue. Medium skin tones are complemented by varying colors depending on undertones such as peachy-pinks, sky blues, grape purple and orange-reds. High-impact colors are recommended for dark skin tones. Examples of these colors are neon pink, bright fuchsia, dark berry purples, cobalt blue and deep wine reds. Nudes are also a classic option, says StyleCaster.
Nails Inc. is a good brand choice for high-shine polish, and Tom Ford's line contains universally flattering colors, Real Simple reports. OPI has the longest lasting polish, and Red Carpet Manicure is the best at-home gel manicure, the magazine finds.
