Ask at any nail salon which shades are their most requested and they will very quick tell you - bold red and ballet slipper pink.
And it's easy to see why. Both shades are seriously classy, look gorgeous on all colourings and can be worn day or night. But are they adventurous? Hmm. Not really.
What is adventurous right now is nails painted green. That's right green!
And we're talking everything from Kelly green to lime, mint through to emerald. Green is the colour of the moment and we'll admit it - we're happy about that.
Sure, traditional hues are always lovely but nail polish is meant to be fun - a declaration of who you are and how you're feeling. A way of telling the world that not only are you on trend but you're up for adventure, should it come your way.
If you love the sound of that but you're not sure which green to go with, here's a selection of our current faves.
Are they lovely? Heck yes they are. We can confidently say there's one with your name on it. Damn - there may even be several.
Let's get started!

This nail enamel is the first step in Revlon's new 2-step system. Brush on this base + colour in one, and finish with the partner top coat for vivid colour, brilliant shine and life-resistant wear. And this shade sizzles!
If classic, chic is your think then this perfect olive egg green is for you.
It's green so definitely modern and edgy, but a subtle, sophisticated shade that is perfect for those who regard themselves as 'ladies'.
If you fancy green but you're a ballet slipper pink girl at heart, then this sweet shade is a terrific place to start.
It is green so there's no doubt you're bold girl! But at the same time it's super soft so you're a class act too. See - we've got you.
One of the beauties of green is that it comes in so many shades. You can go deep and dark and also light and frothy. And of course, you can turn teal.
This teal is one of the best hues you're ever likely to stumble across so note it down. It's flattering on fingers and just the right level of bright. And it goes on easy and lasts and lasts ... and lasts!
