Quick— what nail polish colors are “in” right now?

I’m going out tonight with some extremely trendy and good-looking friends. Having a mani-pedi in an hour and I really have no idea what’s “in” in that department or abt other . I usually end up with something bright or dark on my toes and a more sheer/natural color on my fingers but I’m not wedded to that.

For reference I am a mom in my early 40s and not exactly a fashion adventurer.

Thank you!!

Black or pastels.

Ask the beautician that does your treatments. Surely they will know!

I just had shellac done on mine today, I change it every few weeks, have gone from black to bright orange and it's fab.

I’ve got a beige/pink on my fingers, nails short.

Shocking pink on my toes from the same wheel as finger polish so compliments.

I’m a beauty therapist. Generally summer time, everyone goes for brights. Pinks and oranges mainly. But have what you like.

i have seen a lot of white pedicures. I’d love a pedicure but I lost a nail and waiting for it to grow back.

I don't like think anything's in or not in.
What colour clothes are you wearing.
I'm wearing mint green glitter nails. Bloody phone won't let me upload pic.

I usually go for a bright colour on the toes (bright pink, coral, possibly orange) and for the fingers in summer either a similar bright coral, or if I want to keep it professional for work a nice nude or pale pink and in winter I go for a darker maroon or dark berry

It's probably too late for OP now but I think what's fashionable at the moment are "bright pastels". Pale colours but with a seemingly white base so they look opaque and blocky. Pink, lilac or jade.

I don't really like it as it reminds me of school where we'd tippex our nails and colour with pink highlighter but I'm not fashionable anymore so....
