Nail varnish advice please for useless person - me!
I don't get on with models own as I find it too runny. I like opi or the Rimmel ones are surprisingly good. If you go for a shimmer, pearl or glitter it doesn't chip as much and lasts longer. I would go for a shimmer gold or bronze as it's a good neutral that looks dressy and you don't have to worry about touch-ups.
I agree on Rimmel ones being great, though they seem to have mostly Gel options now too! The 60 second ones are good though and loads of colours available. I also find that using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat works wonders for me, no waiting ages for them to be fully dry, no chipping and last longer.
As for colour, it's tricky when your day and night colours are so different! I think gingerbreadman has it right that you should go neutral.
