We know by now that not all nail polishes are created the same. And you might have your own particular preferences when it comes to your favorite brands and shades. Some of you might gravitate toward the "cleaner" organic options that are free from toxic ingredients. Others might prioritize the shade range. And some people want something that's no-fuss and quick-drying.
For me, since I don't paint my nails that often, I just want a formula that is easy to apply, long-lasting, and has a rich color. Thankfully, there are a lot of brands that offer this, but one that I consider a go-to is Tom Ford's collection of polishes. They are just so luxe. The finish is glossy and shiny but not overbearing, and I find that I can go for a week without any chipping. My at-home manicures always look fresh and professional, even with my shaky hands and impatient technique.
Take a look at some of the most popular shades below, based on my internet trolling. And consider putting them on your wish list for your next manicure.
