The top ten nail polish colors for 2018

These days, fashion changes really fast. Things that were new and fresh become common after just a few days. I really don't like to wear anything common. It looks really weird when you go to the market or some get-together and someone else is dressed the same as you.

Nail color styles change often too. I always want to keep my nails trendy with new art and colors, and I am sure that most of the girls want the same thing. I did some research and found some hot nail polish colors and trends for 2018. I am sharing them here!

1. "On The Edge"

There is nothing more chic than bright royal-blue nails. You can pair this shade with a same color dress. Add some water slide decals on your nails for a crisp look. Whether you go for classic cobalt or bright cerulean, blue will be popular in 2018. You will feel that you have been transported to the seaside with bright blue shade.

Orly released its Adrenaline Rush Summer Collection 2017. All colors in this collection are bright including the bright royal blue shade, "On the Edge."

2. "Chic From Ears To Tail"

Pink color is always in style, with so many dark and light hues to choose from. This sober and sweet pink color is the best choice when you want to give your nails a simple look.

3. "Treble Maker"

Here is a fluorescent mint-green color from the China Glaze Electric Nights collection 2016. There are lots of bright and glitter shades in this collection, but I never saw such beautiful and bright minty shade before by any nail polish brand. Apply two coats of this polish to get perfect finish.

4. "That's Shore Bright"

Shades of orchid are the colors of 2018. This one, "It's Shore Bright," is a beautiful, bright purple shade by China Glaze. This year, bright candy colors are going to be a hit. If you are going to buy some purple nail polish, then don't miss this shade by China Glaze.

5. "On Pinks and Needles"

"On Pinks and Needles" is a hot pink top coat with hexagon-shaped glitter. The glitter is of several different sizes and they look simply amazing when applied on a contrast color base. This polish gives full coverage and applies smoothly. The formula is good enough that one coat gives a perfect look. This shade is part of OPI's 2017 Brights collection.

6. "I Just Can't Cope-Acabana"

This is a really yellow cream shade. I like this shade because it goes perfectly with sunny summer days. It is a bright yellow color with a pastel finish. The formula is great, but I have seen a few lines in the first coat. It looks perfect after two coats.

7. I Stop for Red by OPI

The most popular red hue polish for 2017 is OPI's "I Stop for Red." Like pink, red is a color that always stays on trend, whether it is hot summer or chilly winter. This red will always add charm to your look. "I Stop for Red" is a cream shade that spreads quickly without streaks. It has an undertone of orange, but it looks red most of the time.

8. Essie "Perennial Chic"

Any nail polish collection is incomplete without a beige or cream color. From the long list of beige hues, I have selected "Perennial Chic" from the 2016 spring collection by Essie. It is a nude shade with a brown undertone. You can reach the full opacity with two coats because the formula is nicely pigmented. This is also a perfect shade for nail stamping.

9. "My Way or the Highway"

China Glaze released a bright teal shade in their Road Trip Spring Collection in 2016. It is brighter and even more green than previous shades, namely "Aqua Baby" and "Wait N’ Sea." There was a similar color in a previous collection, but that one is glossy. "My Way or the Highway" has a jelly formula that gives full coverage with a second coat. This cream polish is my favorite teal shade.

10. "Is Mai Tai Crooked?"

"Is Mai Tai Crooked?" is a gorgeous creamy light orange shade from OPI's Hawaii Collection 2016. I have seen several orange colors, but this one is amazing and has no match. It has really good opacity that will flatter most skin tones. Two coats are enough for a perfect look. It is my favorite color from the Hawaii Collection.

        I love polishing my own nails ---The majority seems to go get manicures at salons... Which is fine sometimes for me also---but the ones who never do them themselves anymore Are missing out I think---Little primping of myself things since I was a kid was always a fun little thing to do
