5 Colors for Your Manicure Stash

nail polish

Polish is a quick outfit pick me up.  This is especially true for a girl who likes her clothes simple.  You can get experimental with trendy colors and use polish as a simple accessory.
To stock your at home manicure stash start with 5 colors from these groups.

Nude.  Very modern, light colors wear easily and chips are harder to notice.

Nearly black.  Goes with everything and looks sophisticated.

Signature color.  I mentioned knowing and using your signature color here.  You will look at yours hands and feel happy and it will add your personality to basic outfits.

Glitter.  Enough said.

Trendy.  Just because it will keep you from getting stuck in a rut and its seasonal.  ‘It’ colors change each season so it will keep you trying new things.

**TIP** Don’t forget to grab a good base and top coat.  If you buy these two things right you can make less expensive polish colors look pro and last longer.  Pro manicure steps coming next week!

I linked up to other ladies sharing polish stories below.


  1. I didn't know that Nicki Minaj has an OPI line!!! (Running immediately to Ulta!)

    And Dark Purple is always my signature color...

  2. Dark purple is mine too! ...and the Nicki Minaj Collection is just happiness in a bottle. When you check them out tell me what you think of Pink Friday.

  3. I used to keep my nails painted all the time! But now it's been forever since I've done it. I'm a sucker for any sort of glitter polish, though. I hope i never get too old to wear that stuff. :o)

  4. great post! totally agree with you that a good top coat and base coat make all the difference in the world! thanks for linking up! :)

  5. Me too Sara, love them all for all different reasons.
