If chosen wisely, the right nail polish can be the perfect sexy punctuation mark to a va-va-voom look. Think Marilyn Monroe’s fire-engine-red toenail polish in The Seven-Year Itch. Plus, checking out the crazy color names is half the fun of getting a mani.
That got me thinking: What’s the sexiest nail polish color ever? And what’s the sexiest nail polish color name ever? For this Very Important Project, I had to call in some experts. I tapped three popular nail polish bloggers to give me their juiciest varnish picks (mine are at the very end!):
1. Siobhan, The Nailphile
Sexiest Color: Isla (Zoya)
Siobhan says: “I think shimmery blackened reds are the sexiest nail polish.” Two more sexy suggestions: I’m With Brad (Sephora by OPI) and Torrid Red (Nubar)
Sexiest Name: Tickle My Triangle (China Glaze)
Siobhan says: “There are a lot of overtly sexual nail polish names (from NARS and Orgasm Cosmetics, especially), but I think this one is the most well done.”
