    Default Which colour polish?

    So... I work at a day spa and we're starting to change our colours for manis/pedis from Essie to OPI... which means buying new colours.

    The girl currently in charge of that stuff is leaving, and she seems to choose anything that "almost black." So really dark colours with a slight hint of something in it. She thinks these are "popular," colours, but so far I haven't use a single one on a client.

    Anyway, when she leaves we'll be in charge of choosing colours, so am curious... which colours would you love to see?

    Obviously we have pinks, reds, blah blah... but could you pick 3 colours you'd love to wear yourself?

    If you're an OPI fan, even the actual name of the colour would be awesome! Or just tell me the types of colours you want.

    Perhaps you'd like a colour that's light a light aqua, or a gold glitter, or a metallic pink. Be specific if you can - that would be marvellous!

    Here's some inspiration courtesy of Google Images: https://www.google.com.au/search?hl=...HY6aiAf__4DoAw

    Link me if you see a colour you'd love!

    Thanks!

    Neon colours are in at the moment as well. Bright oranges, greens etc. Same as pastel colours.

    Would you choose to have these on you if you went and had a mani/pedi though?

    Our clients aren't teenage girls who want to be trendy... so current trends aren't really what we're looking for. More what actual grown women would want to wear...

    I get OPI gel polish every fortnight... I have 'pedal faster suzi' on at the moment and love it! Usually I have 'Pompeii purple'. I tend to stick to pink shades.
    My MIL came with me this week and got a beautiful red/orange, not sure of the name.

    We have Pedal Faster Suzi in gels!

    A lot of people like the red/orange colours - the three we get used a lot are Cajun Shrimp and My Chihuahua and I Eat Mainely Lobster. I don't know why we need so many red/orange colours that are almost practically the same, but people tend to like them. lol.

    I just had a pedi with opi a good mandarin is hard to find, I really like it, but it is a bit more red than I thought, I was hoping it was more orange.

    I am not liking anything that has glittery or opal like qualities.

    I am thinking of getting a dark navy blue colour pedi next time.

    I like the natural pinks, I also like the clear sparkly ones which can go on top of any colour.
