Just when you thought burgundy nail polish had its limits, think again. Sure, it's usually one of the most in-demand nail colors for fall, but I like to start busting out my burgundy shades as early as mid-summer (sue me). 

It might be a moodier color, but it looks good on everyone, thanks to the different shades it comes in—there's something for everyone! Certain ones lean more purple, while others fully embrace their red undertones, and some are as bold as to offer a touch of black. Whatever your fancy, it's a color that should be embraced year-round, in my opinion. Nail artists also seem to agree. I polled them on what they think are the best burgundy nail polishes of all time, and they had a lot to share. 

Ahead, you'll find their favorite burgundy shades, plus a few of our favorites.
