Deep browns, like vampy reds, look classic on nails, but their sophisticated, earthy character softens them, making brown, we think, almost as wearable as baby pink or beige. “Dark browns look best on rounded square nails that extend just past the tip of the finger,” says Jan Arnold, cofounder of Creative Nail Design.
If you have trouble maintaining a manicure, choose metallic shades, which tend to adhere to nails better and last longer than shimmerless ones.
Here are a few shades we’re loving:
What: Zoya Nail Polish in Kaufda
Zoya nail polish is free of toxic Toluene, Formaldehyde and DBP. Perfect for anyone who wants to remove one more toxin from their surroundings. Or if you just want exceptional, long-wearing nail polish! Zoya is the longest wearing natural nail polishes available and it’s made in the USA. Poured in fine Italian Glass, and Spanish Brushes. Wow!

What: O.P.I. Nail Polish in Chocolate Shake-spear
I love OPI nail polish and I have a ton of it. Every time it goes on sale, I stock up. My fav color is “I’m Not Really A Waitress” a ruby red color. It’s awesome.
