With our ballots scanned, votes casted and proof shots all uploaded on social media, all that remains of the national elections are the long-awaited results and the ink on our voting fingers. At the risk of leaving them stained a dark blue or a faded post-wash brown, we round up a list of five nail polish colors that are a perfect match for the season, as well as the mess on our inked nails.
We covet: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Commander in Chic, available in Rustan’s Beauty Stores and Watsons branches
A dark neutral shade, this fence-sitter resides on the boundary of graphite and brown and is the perfect alternative to the classic nude.
We covet: Etude House Play Nail in shade #85, available in Etude House
One of the palest shades from Etude House’s Play Nail assortment, this shade breathes new life into the blue polish most safe players tend to avoid.
We covet: OPI Steel Waters Run Deep, available in Rustan’s The Beauty Source
While noticeably less intimidating than nails swathed in black polish, fingers painted a dark shade of graphite have the potential to exude just as much mystery.
We covet: OPI Relentless Ruby, available in Rustan’s The Beauty Source
The single nail polish classic that screams bolder is truly better.
We covet: The Face Shop Trendy Nails in shade WH002, available in The Face Shop
Paint those fingernails pristine again. As in fashion: white is clean, timeless and makes a perfect partner for almost anything.
