The Latest Classics: New Color For Your Nails

I've always been inclined to experiment with nail color.  In high school, I proudly sported the neon yellow, and in college I moved onto gothic black – much to the chagrin of my preppy social circle . But few colors stuck around for long (thank God). Here are a few of the newest classics that have taken the nail world by storm. These polishes are painted on the fingers of fashionable gals season after season, proving that no matter the trend, they are here to stay.

Opi's Lincoln Park After Dark seemed like a passing fad at first – one of many uber dark polishes that were sure to fall to the wayside once the dark nail craze died out. But lo and behold, we are still flocking towards this midnight purple years after its debut. I continually have a hard time finding a nail salon that can keep it in stock. This color brings a rocker edge to every hand it adorns without going too far into goth territory. I am also a fan of Chanel's Vamp – which appeared over a decade ago but is still a coveted favorite among many fashion forward celebs. (if they can find it on ebay!)

Nude nails have always been a classic, but only recently have they won out over french tips and pinkish hues. The neutral beige of Estee Lauder's Peach Sorbet has risen ahead of the competition, mostly due to the subtle sophistication it exudes.

The color red conveys statements of power, allure, and attention-grabbing ferocity. Gone are the days when our red nails were the color of stop signs or cherry tomatoes. The new red is a dark, seductive color with a touch of woody brown, as in this Jungle Red by NARS . It is sexy, mature, and sure to remain a modern beauty staple.
