We're creatures of habit; whether you're a strictly neutral Ballet Slippers fan or you have a soft spot for deep burgundy shades, we all tend to stick to the same spectrum of nail colours. It not only reduces the time spent staring into the abyss of shades on the wall of the nail salon, but it also guarantees that you don't leave your appointment with post-mani regret.
