The Best Polishes I've Laid My Eyes on Since Everyone Stepped Up Their Nail Game
Top shades and finishes ahead.
There's no denying the fashion and beauty worlds have rebounded from a year and a half of staying at home. We're all suddenly wearing bright pink, vibrant green, pale yellow, and even… tangerine. Checkerboards, retro florals, and screen-printed designs are all over jeans, sweaters, and second-skin tops. And when it comes to our nails, we've gone haywire! French manicures in red; purple and green gel polishes swirled into ethereal designs; matte finishes painted over vibrant hues. And that's just the half of it! Nail salons may be open again, but I know I'm not the only one who finds at-home manicures to be a relaxing form of self-care now. Below, I rounded up some of the year's hottest nail shades and finishes. It's up to you to decide if you'll attempt some intricate nail art or keep it classic. There's no wrong answer.
