Beauty Product of the Week: Nail Polish

Nail varnish gives your nails a beautiful, polished look. For many, it's a fashion statement and a way to express themselves. For some, it might be an essential accessory. For others, it's just for fun. But there are some tried and true rules I personally recommend you follow. You can take my advice, or you can go out there and be the awesome rebel you are. It's up to you.

Rule #1: Neon orange does not look good on anyone. Ever.

Rule #2: Save the citrus colors for summer. Yellow, orange, and lime green are summer colors and should be treated as such. Feel free to use them in a design on your ring finger, but try not to wear sold yellow in the middle of winter.

Rule #3: You can't go wrong with pastels.

Rule #4: Deep red is a classic for the ladies and matches almost any outfit or situation. Gents should try to stay away from it, and go for a nice light pink, baby blue, lavender, or emerald green instead.

Rule #5: Blue, grey, and beige are awesome winter colors.

Rule #6: Pastels, pinks, greens, and purples are great for spring.

Rule #7: Autumn is a bit trickier. Go for a deep color like dark, dark red, brown, or smoky orange.

Rule #8: Summer is the season to have fun with your nails! Step out of your color comfort zone. Pick up a neon. Alternate colors. Get a wacky design. Bend the rules a little.

Rule #9: The 'different color on every nail' look stopped being cute in middle school. If you want to wear two different colors, try pairing a gem color with its pastel cousin, or alternate complementary pastel colors. If that's a little too risky for you, try getting a different color on just your ring finger instead of, or in conjunction with, a design.

Rule #10: Make up your own rules. Unless your place of work or school has a specific rule against it, play around with your nail polish. Wear lime green in the depths of December. Men, wear red and be proud of it. Put a different color on every nail. And even though it pains me to say it, if you absolutely must, wear neon orange brighter than the sun. Be you, because you're beautiful.
