We are huge fans of rocking neutral nail polish for a myriad of reasons—mainly because the wear and tear is far more discrete than the obvious chipping you simply can’t hide with bright hues. If making your manicure last for a full week is important but you also have a strong desire to rock color (read: totally jealous of your colleague’s neon-coral pedicure), take heed: There is a middle ground. A new crop of opaque pastels have emerged on the scene, as eye-catching as they are wearable ranging from ever-so-slightly pink to muted violet. These 5 pretty colors may feel like a major departure from your go-to Ballet Slippers, but change is good (and baby steps are best).
