If there is one beauty obsession I am guilty of it is nail polish. I am constantly fussing over nail polish, painting my nails, and finding the best spas for my manicure/pedicures. The right shade is essential, and the folks at New York Magazine seem to recognize that and did some of the leg work for us. They have painstakingly put together a list of 110 best nail colors found in NYC— covering drugstore, salon, & department store favorites. In edition to the polish details, they have posted swatches, so decisions can be made at your desk. My favorite hues from their selections are posted below:
