Best color optionsThe winner: OPI Nail Lacquer, $6.99
Why we picked it: "I believe OPI makes every color in the world," Alexis says. Adds Stephanie: "OPI collaborates with popular artists (like Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj), as well as feature films (like 'Muppets' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean'), and has excellent seasonal collections, so they're constantly coming out with new shades. From unique colors to neutrals, OPI has it all."
Honorable mentions go to: Essie Nail Polish, $8, Butter London 3 Free Lacquers, $14, Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer, $5, and CND Nail Lacquer, $9, for their wide range of beautiful shades.
