So a follow up to my five must-have eye shadows, I thought I'd do the same capsule collection for nail colours. What's next, cheek colours? Probably not. We flush one colour, and one colour only. Watch me eat my words in a week.
If you're not a compulsive nail polish purchaser like me, here are a few colours that are nice to have on hand that can cover most moods/occasions.
Neutral: This is a light, nude colour you can wear every day - a go-to colour, if you will! The Nailene colour below (if you can find it...haven't seen it in a while) is beyond gorgeous. Meant as a French manicure base, it's the sheerest gold-pink with the finest shimmer running through. Gorge!

Red: The colour of confidence! There's something so 'done' about a perfectly lacquered red nail. Red is such an essential make up colour, you need at least one to fall back on, even if you think it's too loud. You can range from a coral-y orange-red to a deep, blue-based cherry (my personal favourite!).
Metallic Shimmer: If you want something less out-there for night (say, a wedding or a conservative office party) or even just a jazzed-up day look, I highly recommend a shimmer. These can be your best friend since even a single coat can add a hint of finish to your look. They also kick all other polishes up a notch!
