I don’t wear nail polish often, but I’ve found that nowadays when I do, I gravitate towards more timeless colors. I’m talking reds and pinks and nudes. A couple of years ago, I would have probably said, “Yawn!” because she really liked gem-colored nails. I don’t know if it’s because I’m older or because I don’t paint my nails as often, but yup, I’m more drawn to those hues.
That’s especially true if I’m buying nail polish, too. Because I don’t keep an extensive collection of polishes and prefer a more pared-down approach, I tend to buy colors that will never go out of style. And for me, that’s the reds, pinks, nudes, and most importantly, sheer polishes. I’ve been really into sheer polishes lately because they’re perfect for any occasion, a bit low-key but still eye-catching, and pretty low-maintenance.
