Hit Refresh: 27 Nail Polish Shades That Will Pep Up Your Look

The best nail polish has the ability to brighten your mood and help you look more groomed, and it's the easiest way to start transitioning both your beauty look and your wardrobe for the New Year. In fact, it's through our nail polish choices that we like to first experiment with a colour. And not to mention that for the strapped-of-cash among us (that's everyone, right?), this is an affordable way to try something new now.

So which nail colours are the shades du jour? Well, the autumn/winter catwalks were all about colour, and the same can be said for the nail trends. From poppy reds to rich greens via pretty lilac hues, the shade you choose is totally down to you, but if we were to pick? Well, we're really into wearing mood-boosting sunny nail shades right now—if nothing else but to brighten up these grey skies.

Metallics were everywhere on nails at the autumn/winter shows, but so were personalised, individual manicures, like these quirky nail-art looks. Whatever nail polish you choose, make sure you wear it on neat nails with tidy, nourished cuticles—CND's SolarOil (£13) can help with that.
