Fashion Nails polish is one of the most personal and universally relatable things. Everybody has a favorite color, be it a classic (Topless & Barefoot, Big Apple Red), an Instagram-favorite (slim green), or a darker and more moody shade (navy, deep wines). It’s sophisticated and cool. It’s not uncommon to reach for the same old bottle of wine every time you go into a salon. While it’s great to have a signature, why not try something new?
