When it comes to shaping and painting nails, us gals have quite a few choices. I prefer to keep my nails short and filed somewhat squarely (it's best for piano playing and I just feel a bit Dynasty when they are too long!). The french manicure is quite common for women with longer nails or acrylic and gel nails. This look is nice, clean and lady-like, but a bit of work to maintain. Keeping nails clean and unpolished or painted with a nice nude colour, is great for everyday. For nights out there are so many fun colours to pick from!
Red is a colour that you just can't go wrong with! I have my Rougemarie by MAC Cosmetics on standby at all times! There are about a million and one shades of red too! Row looks fab in candy apple or fire engine red and I tend to lean towards a deep blood red. Whether we are talking toes or fingers, red is always a winner.

The lovely thing about nudes is that anyone can wear nude, it looks nice against any skin tone. It's a softer look that keeps nails looking well manicured but not attention grabbing. As mentioned before, nude colours are great for everyday, and hands down Essie makes the best nude polishes. I can scour pots and pans all day like a little Cinderella and this polish stays on! Nothing is worse than a polish that peels within a day or two. I think today's busy woman has more important things to do than paint her nails everyday!
For the holiday season, there are a lot of cool colours coming out. From bright mattes to deep and profound shimmers!
