Confession: if forced to choose just one color polish to wear for the rest of our lives (oh, the horror), we'd likely pick red. Why? The shade is simply unrivaled in what it offers wearers—it is sexy, yet classic; vibrant, yet appropriate to wear just about anywhere; cheery, yet smart. In summer, a fiery red accents warm weather wardrobes, and in winter the color punctuates darker ensembles and brightens up even the darkest of days. There is no wrong way to wear red and no matter your style or skin tone, there is sure to be a shade to flatter. Our go-to reds? Chanel Dragon and Zoya Sooki.
