Certain shades of nail polish are seasonal. They don’t have to be (after all, there are no rules when it comes to beauty; it’s all personal), but some shades are traditionally associated with specific times of the year. Take wine-colored nail polish, for instance. Whether you call it grape, burgundy, or merlot, it’s usually associated with winter. Bright pink, on the other hand, is usually associated with summer. Pastel shades? Spring. Burnt orange, muted gray, and espresso brown? Autumn. See what we mean?
Other colors are more universal. Classic red nail polish is a good example, as it fits pretty much every season and situation. Blue nail polish is another one. No matter if it’s navy, marine, robin’s egg, cornflower, turquoise, or some other shade, it can fit any style and aesthetic. Need proof? We got you.
