Deep Brown Nail Color
Why You'll Love It: Deep browns, like vampy reds, look classic on nails, but their sophisticated, earthy character softens them, making brown, we think, almost as wearable as baby pink or beige. "Dark browns look best on rounded square nails that extend just past the tip of the finger," says Jan Arnold, cofounder of Creative Nail Design. If you have trouble maintaining a manicure, choose metallic shades, which tend to adhere to nails better and last longer than shimmerless ones.
