(Image credit: @betina_goldstein)

It’s been a while, but I’m finally excited about nail polish again. Aside from a few at-home manicures I've attempted, I’ve mostly kept my nails bare this past year. But with things slowly starting to re-open and more summer plans on the horizon, I simply cannot wait to get my nails and toes varnished with a chic polish. This season, I’ll be shopping for classic nail polishes that will easily complement the fun bags, shoes, silhouettes, and color trends that I’ll be wearing this summer. Curious to see the go-to colors that my fellow editors always gravitate to, I asked them to share their holy-grail nail polish shades they love (or that generally represent their signature style) no matter the season.

Keep scrolling for their favorite classic nail polish colors that will hopefully inspire your next mani-pedi.
