12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors from Jamie and Katie: Zoya Kelly & OPI Jade Is The New Black

Some people's beauty obsessions are obvious early in life. For my best friend, Katie Reed, and me, it was definitely nail polish. We've been in love with cool, bold colors since the early 90's -- we used to trade them back and forth while sitting in our high school hallways before class. For the next 12 days, we'll be bringing you some of our favorites in what we're calling 12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors.

Jamie: If I could only wear one grey nail polish for the rest of my life, Zoya Kelly would be it. This polish is just the perfect shade of dark, creamy charcoal with just the tiniest hint of purple undertone. It applies so easily and perfectly in two coats. Plus, it looks amazing on every skin tone! At a nail salon once, five of us in a row all had our nails done with this color -- all with very different skin tones, and it looked fantastic on every single one of us. It's just so chic and sophisticated, and I wear it every chance I get.

Katie: When I got a pedi with OPI Jade Is The New Black, I literally sat pulling my foot up to my face under a light so that I could check out this fabulous color up close. I couldn't stand it being so far away, so the next day I ran out and bought it so I could get it on my fingers and really enjoy it. This creamy jade green is in my top 5, and I find myself coming back to it over and over again. There is something about the shade that looks to me like green with some creamer in it. The formula on this one is a dream with two coats. I know I'm not the only one who loves this polish, and I highly recommend getting your hands on a bottle!
Note: If you can find it, OPI Jade Is The New Black retails for about $8.
