Lincoln Park After Dark
This is a cult hit, and a color even my son thinks "looks cool". I recently went to a holiday party wearing this shade on my hands and both a mom and her teenage daughter asked me for the name of this shade. The daughter said it's very much like the black polish all the girls are wearing at school, but this looks classier. Her mom agreed. Lincoln Park After Dark is actually a super dark purple shade that makes you look trendy and glamorous, without the risk of looking like an emo.
I'm Not Really a Waitress
This is my favorite red polish ever. It's blue-based, so it looks equally striking on dark skin as it does on light skin. Try it on your toes, I applied mine nearly two weeks ago and it still hasn't chipped or lost it's shine.
Chicago Champagne Toast
The most perfect neutral everyday polish. Works great for the office as well as for evenings or just hanging around the house. It matches nearly every outfit you might wear. This is the shade I wore to Disney World.
A Rose at Dawn....Broke by Noon
My daughter Zee picked this one out herself and I'm glad she introduced me to it. It's a really fun pink, looks great on both your hands and toes. The pink looks bright in the bottle, but trust me, it's not the type of color reserved only for teenagers going to the prom. My daughter, even though she's only two, asked me to put this on her nails when we brought it home, she was so excited about it. (They don't wear polish all the time, but once in while I let them, just for fun.) My skin is several shades darker than hers and it looked equally nice on me. Overall, it's a really fun pink, and doesn't look tacky or "too young" at all.
