Soft pink (and add some edge)
"OPI's Bubble Bath is a classic soft pink on its own or with a French," says Georgia of Tenfold, one of Jozi's hippest new nail bars.
Add some metallic or black edges and detail for an update on the sweet-like-sugar baby pink.
So good on any skin tone, bold and beautiful red is always a classic.
My personal favourite remains the Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Coromandel. It's Coco Chanel in a bottle.
Beige with grey undertone
This hue works on all skin tones and makes for a clean but not stark look.
Good options to shop or get at the salon include Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around by OPI; and a super budget-friendly version is the Essence gel polish in Dare it Nude - it's only R30!
This happy colour is always present on summer toes, and the Morgan Taylor Myself-Ie, And I is one of the most popular polishes on the market today.
