Nail Polish

From top:

Dior Vernis in Red Royalty ($24, neimanmarcus.com) is one of those unusual-in-a-good-way shades that “have warm and cool pigments and therefore suit all skin tones,” says Super. Said one tester, “I’ve tried all kinds of reds, and this is the one I had always hoped to find. It’s bright but sophisticated.”

Essie in Mademoiselle ($8.50, essie.com) has become a classic for good reason. “You just can’t go wrong with it,” said one tester. Not too bubble gum and not too sheer, this pale pink adds a finished touch to fingers and toes.

Chanel Le Vernis in Distraction ($27, chanel.com), deemed the “perfect coral” by one tester, looks equally great against dark and pale skin. “A shade this bold can act like an accessory, adding a little something unexpected to any outfit,” says Carmindy. Pink undertones keep it safely out of Grandma-coral territory.
