The Little Mermaid

Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Marc Jacob’s Nail Glaze in Enamored is reminiscent of the colour palette in the Little Mermaid. Paint on a few coats of this and you’ll have the ocean at your fingertips.
Maroon is not only reserved for fall but also a sexy alternative to pastel or a bright blood red colour. I’d give Essie’s Lacy not Racy if you want to look like you belong in Twilight.
If you’re looking for something dark but not quite black, I would recommend going for a deep navy colour. Try OPI’s Russian Navy for an iridescent look à la Cara Delevingne.
Little Black Dress
Black is classic and an institution in the nail world. Just like the LBD, a few coats of black polish whether its matte, glossy, or glitter infused will give you a shot of confidence. Try China Glaze’s Liquid Leather and prepare to be transformed.
