WWW Editors Told Me the Nail Colors They'd Wear to a Party—the Answers Are Gold

Let’s be honest, nearly every nail color can be considered a "fun” nail color if you want it to be—"fun” is one of those terms that’s completely subjective.

If you’re in the market for fun nail color ideas, though, you’ve come to the right place.
