I always have grey/navy. I've very cool toned pale skin and red haired. What's nice?

I have black dahlia on my toes at the moment

Nearly black...very nice (i think )

Am loving the lilacs and plate lie greys right now.

I think a plummy / aubergine looks lovely with red hair

Ooh thanks. Not seen anyone with lilac. Aubergine could work too. New place I'm trying so don't know what they've got

Liking midnight swim...but navy again. I'm drawn to it like a moth to a flame..

I'm currently sporting a very bright pink. Not my usual at all. I usually have black, navy or classic red. But I'm quite liking it

NemosKnickers Wed 12-Jul-17 19:58:44

I'm liking the pastels - pink, lilac, baby blue or mint

Here's my pink

Just got mine done, hot pot pink I've had this loads of times, love it.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 12-Jul-17 21:33:53

I like hot pop pink but pink bikini is more popular.

Sun bleached is nice, ripe guava, electric orange, tropix.

What did you go for?

I have bright red on my nails at mo, and an almost white on my toes - it was pure white but it looked like I had tipex on them so she put a slightly more cream shade on to soften it.

I went a shade between navy and royal blue. It wasn't Shellac but a mix and I'm not kidding, about 100 to choose from. All on abug chain which was impossible to look at with one hand while the other was filed. I think I'll go pastel for my holidays but pale blue. There were tons of great dark reds and I loved a rose shade but it looked shocking on my skin. Loads of nice nude/beige too but a bit 'meh' and I felt I could do that myself.

Looks darker here I noticed
I'm eternally dissatisfied with nail colour!!

dailymailarecunts Wed 12-Jul-17 22:04:02

Ooh I really like that - my friend always has a sort of jet black with a glint to it <rubbish description> it looks amazing but I'm too scared to go so dark as I'm pale too. Might try something similar to your shade as an in betweener!
