There's a lot to consider when selecting the right nail polish. Does it complement your skin tone? Is it versatile enough to wear with your favourite clothes? Does it look cheap? While it's typically pretty simple to answer all these questions ourselves, there's also a very stylish crew we can look to for nail inspiration: the fashion set.

This flock of street style models, bloggers, and cool girls are not only clued in to the most of-the-moment sartorial selections, but they've also got a finger on the pulse of the prettiest and often most unexpected nail colours out there. They've got eyes for aesthetics, after all, so it makes perfect sense that such good taste would extend to the tips of their fingers.

Consider this your go-to guide of polishes you've been overlooking, and check out the 16 pretty nail colours we see fashion girls wearing all the time. Don't forget to screenshot your favourites and shop the polishes to try them out for yourself.
