Although we consider ourselves adventurous when it comes to things like the style choices and new foods, there are certain times when we play it safe. Like nail polish, for example. We tend to opt for the safe route and stick to shades of reds and nudes to save us from the potential hardship of a rushed polish change for a shade that better goes with an OOTD.

But as the inspirational quotes on our Instagram feed inform us, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” So it’s time to accept the fact that your polish might not always go with what you’re wearing, and that’s okay. In fact, the right shade can lend an unexpected element to your otherwise basic look.

And so, we’re highlighting five new designer nail polish shades that are cool, chic and seriously different from any other colour you’ve ever worn. Give them a whirl, because after all, “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all”.
