Best Nail Polish Shades For Different Occasions
1. Best Nail Polish Shades For A First Date
First impression is the last impression! This is what a famous guy blogger, Abraham Lloyd, who blogs about dating says - "Nails are one of the first things that I notice on a date."
"Nails should complement appearance, not upstage or detract from it." He further adds. Taking a note from this statement that comes from a dating expert, ladies should ensure that they have well-manicured nails before their date! Paint your nails just a day before your date night so that the manicure can look fresh.
Go with a feminine colour like pink or scarlet red, both of these colours are very romantic! We recommend - DeBelle Gel Nail Lacquer Miss Bliss (baby pink with tiny glitters) and French Affair (scarlet red).
