Butter London Ultra Violet

Butter London is known for creating rich shades inspired by Pantone's Color of the Year. For 2018, that color is ultra violet, and we are obsessed with their entire chip resistant collection—especially this lacquer named after the spotlight shade itself! Sport it on its own for a bold statement or pair it with the line's other polishes for an edgy monochromatic vibe. ($10; ulta.com)

Essie Less-is-Aura

Inspired by the sunset of the desert, Essie's Less-is-Aura warms up any manicure. The shimmery shade easily glides on and lasts throughout the day. This must-have terracotta beige is just one of the six horizon shades in the Desert Mirage Collection, but we specifically love this shade because it's a stunning neutral any nail guru needs in her polish selection.

Londontown Aces High

When you're in the mood for a more subdued design, swipe on Aces High by Londontown. This soft mint green hue screams spring, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until then to rock it. With the glossy cream finish it makes an excellent base so you can ace trendy designs like thin, geometric lines or layer it with white and black to create a stylish color block mani.
