:: polish for the pale ::

I always feel just a little undone without a good manicure. I love the way a French manicure looks, but because even the smallest of chips destroys disappoints me, I hardly ever go that route.

And as I've mentioned before, my skin is very fair. In the fall and winter, I'm STILL a fan of all the OPI Black Onyx/Lincoln Park polishes that complement my tone without looking too goth. But in the summer, it's more of a challenge. I can't wear all the corals and oranges and taupes, and often the opaques make me look like I have no fingernails at all. Instead, I've compiled a few shades here that work really well for those of us who are pigment-challenged and still scream SUMMER.

**Zoya polish isn't pictured here, but it's my new favorite. Maybe a full post on this line soon!
