Vampy nail polish
Think dark, sexy, but not gothic. When winter months come, it is an excuse to rock some dark shades on your fingers and toes. If you are a sucker for black, think about chic alternatives like oxblood, emerald, sapphire and amethyst. This season, they literally go with any outfit.

Nude nail polish
The modern, barely-there nude polish has been there for a while. Look for a colour that matches your complexion because it lengthens your fingers impeccably. Subtle enough for day and dramatic for a night out, it works wonders as a compliment to cute variations on block colours and reverse French mani.
