Not only is this metallic shade from butter LONDON free of the nasty three (no formaldehyde, no toluene, no DBP — so it’s safe to use while pregnant!), its stylish shade is perfect for pairing with neutrals and chic black. A touch of olive comes through at night while the shiny gold shimmers in the daytime. You can’t go wrong with Wallis when you want a darker champagne manicure.

Brilliant brights are one of this season’s biggest trends. From juicy citrus hues to bold berries, you can’t go wrong with a splash of color at prom.
- We love the eye-catching neon coral shade of this Morgan & Co. H-Back dress. Play up the sparkle on the straps and waist by adding some crystal chandelier earrings.
- Accessorizing is made easy with the necklace-illusion halter on this Hailey Logan chiffon dress. Add a statement bangle to complete the look.
- Take your look from elegant to party-ready with a convertible dress. When it’s time to bust a move, just remove the added skirt layers on this Morgan & Co. tiered dress for dance floor worthy styling.
Going with a neutral dress? You can still add a touch of the trend to your look through your manicure.
- A classic hot pink hue, like Steamy from MAC, looks great against black or prints. When pairing with other brights look to a complimentary color like lime green to make it pop.
- Whether you are going for a sunny dress or keeping it classic in ivory or neutral, a jewel toned mani in Purple Passion from Estee Lauder will keep your fingertips on-trend.
- If you can’t wait to put on your sky-blue gown, or you chose a striking silver shade, then Orange You Glad You Came from Michael Marcus is the lacquer for you.
