Nothing is more deeply satisfying than finding your perfect shade of pink nail polish. It's a classic color, but depending on the time of year, event, mood, and skin tone (or the rest of your beauty aesthetic), your tastes might change. Sometimes, we want a barely there wash of sheer pink, and sometimes, we want opaque bubblegum. Other times, we want a polish that's the equivalent of a '70s disco party on our fingertips (aka as bright and glittery as formulaically possible).
There is definitely no shortage of gorgeous pink nail colors on the market. In fact, we'd say the overwhelming supply of options makes our desire to wear pink a little more challenging, How do you choose a pink when each brand has about 50 (or more) iterations to choose from? We're here to help. Below, we're ranking 20 editor- and industry-favorite pink nail colors to streamline your polish shopping process. Keep scrolling…
OPI has no shortage of iconic pink nail colors. If you're someone who likes a pop of magenta, we suggest this top-seller coined as a "raspberry" shade of pink.
Don't let the fact that Olive & June is one of the newer brands on the polish market throw you off. The O&J's repertoire of shades (and this rose gold, in particular) are destined for iconic greatness, no questions asked. You'll be hard-pressed to find a glossier, creamier, polish out there.
I recently tried this flattering shade of pink from Dior (it's adorably called Charmed), and I can't stop wearing it or talking about it. It's hard to launch a unique shade of pink, but I always get questioned about what I'm wearing whenever I sport this new favorite. (It's limited edition, so snap it up fast!)
I mean, are you surprised? Never has a more iconic shade of baby pink ever existed.
