The one color that is always safe and goes with absolutely anything when it comes to nail polish is red. Red is the absolute classic color in nail polish and the good news is that there are so many beautiful shades of red that anybody can find the one that is perfect for them. I know that there can be a million shades of red polish that all look the same. They each have their time and place in terms of when I want to wear. BUT nonetheless, it’s fun to compare each of them next to one other and see how they look. Red nails are my favorite thing. I feel like they’ve kind of died in popularity, with everyone going pink and neutral but I just love to look and feel of a red nail.

With the exception of like a few weeks in the dead of winter, I really love a true red. Coral undertones and something that just pops. I know Big Apple Red is a go-to red for a ton of people but I just find it a little too dark for my liking. I know that red is not a neutral color, but it is a classic nail polish color and you can wear it with almost anything, so it makes the list! Because of its cult-classic status, red nail polish can be worn to almost any occasion all year round. Just ask the French! Red polish can look equally great with a floaty floral summer dress, a vintage ensemble or with jeans and a chunky sweater. Ooh la la! Treat red nails as you would any other neutral and wear it with anything you like. Red nail polish comes in a wide variety of shades and hues, but the most versatile when it comes to nail polish is probably a classic cherry red. Red nail polish is the ultimate statement of glamour – a bold, look-at-me color that speaks of passion, fire and confidence. It marks you out as someone who is daring, dramatic, outgoing and doesn’t shy away from the spotlight.

Play with this hue when you want to show off your diva side! Fiery red is the nail polish color choice for a lot of people with dominant, assertive personalities — and that’s not a bad thing! People who wear fiery red have natural leadership skills and love being around big groups of people. Bright red nail polish wearers have a lot of friends; other people are immediately drawn to them. People wearing this color are easy to get along with and are fantastic story-tellers. I don’t even know how I got fixated at red nail paint or when I started using it, this is the color on my nails. I just love it so much, as I think it’s the perfect summer red. It’s a true coral bright red that really pops. So it gives you a great red look with being a little more summery and fun. Any time I’m using regular polish this is my go-to.
