If you are anything like me, going to the nail salon is anything but relaxing. I’m always running late and deathly afraid that I will smudge my pedi before I leave the salon.

After years of practice, I’ve finally narrowed it down to the 6 neutral shades that I always wear. By popular request, I’m finally putting together my guide on the best nail polishes for every season.
