We're All About No-Fuss Nail Polishes—These Are Our Faves

As much as we love over-the-top statement-making moments, sometimes simple is best. And the best thing about going with something a little bit more subtle and subdued? It goes with just about anything—from outfits to occasions. One way we love to go the simple route is with our nail polishes.

Sure, it's fun to try some unique colors and eye-catching nail art, but for everyday moments or when you have an amazing outfit that you don't want to distract from, a simple, uncomplicated nail polish works best. It can be classic, elegant, chic, and effortless all at once. And the cool thing about going with a simple look is, most of these colors will never go out of style. So, you can potentially find your signature, to-to polish when you try out these hues.

Need some inspiration? See some of our favorite colors below.

This creamy neutral works with all skin tones. It's bound to be a mainstay in your nail polish collection.

This pinkish-nude can almost blend into certain skin tones. The formula is enriched with bioceramics and ceramides to strengthen and nourish the nails.

Another creamy nude, this one has brown and taupe tones.

Revlon's Romantique is like a mix between nude, brown, and pink. The formula is chip- and fade-resistant.

A light almond color, this polish is almost like getting a gel manicure at the salon. It delivers a high-shine finish and has ingredients to promote healthy nails.

If you don't want to go the nude route, a light, sheer pink is a pretty and simple hue, too. This high-gloss polish provides up to 11 days of wear.

It doesn't get more classic and elegant as Essie's Ballet Slippers. I mean, if the Queen of England is a fan, you know it's classy.

A peachy pink, Jinsoon's Nostalgia polish is almost like a step above a neutral.

Both creamy and sheer, this polish is delicate, pretty, and works with any skin tone.

Àuda.B's pretty pink nail polish is a vegan formula that's almost gel-like.

Grays are also a great neutral option that is still very subtle. This medium-dark, taupe gray is so versatile and works for just about any season.

Almost like a dove gray, this polish is another gel-like formula that has staying power. It lasts up to eight days.

Olive and June's AW is a cross between a gray and a brown, so it's a good option if you want a warmer-toned polish.

A light, cloudy gray, this polish from OPI is both creamy and warm. The formula is naturally sourced and provides up to seven days of wear.

Essie's Chinchilly is another classic and beloved polish. It's the perfect "greige."

A "simple" nail polish doesn't mean it has to be a lighter shade. You can go for a sophisticated dark hue, too. This cinnamon brown polish from Olive and June has just the right amount of intrigue without being too flashy.

A deep and dark red is a classic, too. It's not as in-your-face as a vampy red, but it's still got that saturated color.

This inky, navy blue is a nice change if you are tired of black polishes.

A dark gray-blue, OPI's nail polish is like an upgraded neutral.

Black goes with just about everything right? Sally Hansen's polish delivers a gel-like, long-lasting finish. Next: Celeb Manicurists Say These Are the Best Nude Nail Colors for Every Skin Tone

Self-care is the key to success.

I'm a Busy Mom—These Skincare Products Help Me Prioritize Myself

Whenever I scroll through social media, I often wonder how people manage to do it all. How are they able to make their lives appear so effortless, even with a million things on their plates? Sometimes I'm in awe. Some days I feel jealous. And I occasionally compare myself to them (which just makes me feel like I'm not doing enough). So it's refreshing when someone I admire hits me with some honesty. Take Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton, the founder of self-care brand and modern-day spa Chillhouse, for example. "I get a lot of help. It takes an army," she tells me. Despite the help, I'm still impressed by how much she does on her own. Not only does she have a business to run, but she's a new mom to a ridiculously cute little boy, Heni. So I decided to dig deeper and find out how the founder of Chillhouse actually chills out.

"Self-care is survival. Rather than getting to that point of burnout, it's better to get into a lifestyle where self-care is a part of your routine," explains Ramirez-Fulton. "Whether it's going to yoga or indulging in skincare, you need to take that moment for yourself daily so that you can show up for others in a positive way." What's her latest obsession? Treating herself to everyone's favorite French skincare brand, Clarins. "I'm big into facial massages, and Clarins has such elevated products. After application, I see an instant shift," she tells me. What else does she do to power through the day? Keep scrolling for a peek into a typical day in the life of one woman who's juggling it all.

As soon as Ramirez-Fulton wakes up (and before her baby does), she does her skincare routine for the day. Having just returned from Paris, she's been on a French kick, so her love for Clarins has only intensified. "The scent, the texture, it's all so satisfying," Ramirez-Fulton tells me. "In a world full of trends and gimmicks, it's so nice to see a brand keep to their tried and true application methods while still being able to focus on product innovation in efficacious ways." She currently has three Clarins products on rotation: Total Eye Lift ($89) and Double Serum ($127) are her go-to products every morning and night, and she uses Extra-Firming Energy ($88), as the last step in her morning routine to give her complexion a lifted look. Today, we're focusing on Total Eye Lift. "The secret is in how the lightweight balm melts into the skin and the careful application," says Ramirez-Fulton. To reap all of this cream's benefits, warm it between your fingers for a few seconds, then use three fingertips to gently press under the eyes, over the eyelids, and onto lashes, starting from the inner corners of your eyes to the temples. Then finish by gently pressing between your eyebrows to stimulate lymphatic drainage. The formula is made with a new blend of organic harungana extract and cassie flower wax, which, in combination with Clarins' unique application method, helps the product fully absorb into the skin and gives the look of a visible eye lift in 60 seconds. According to Ramirez-Fulton, "It really does target wrinkles, crow's feet, dark circles, and all the puffiness."

After Ramirez-Fulton is finished with her morning skincare routine, she wakes up her son, Heni. "Kissing my baby in the morning is the ultimate self-care moment," she gushes. Next, she moves on to playtime and breakfast. "I go pretty light—either a banana or some of Heni's leftover eggs and avocado with a matcha latte or an iced coffee. Basically, I'll go for anything that doesn't weigh me down," she says. Afterward, she'll check her email and put out any small fires before heading to the gym.

One of the most important parts of Ramirez-Fulton's day is her workout. "I enjoy the simplicity of a gym these days. There's something very grounding about going back to a very traditional way of working out, and it's really keeping me motivated. I've been working out three to four times a week. I'm trying to start running a bit, so my workouts generally include some treadmill work followed by weight training and mat work. If I'm not working out regularly, I immediately notice my anxiety levels increase. I care less about what I consume, I'm less inclined to make good food decisions, and I'm more inclined to drink heavily. It's imperative that I keep up with my routine to stay sharp and focused," she explains.

After her sweat sesh, Ramirez-Fulton quickly freshens up and gets to work. "I usually touch base with my team then get into emails with a quick lunch squeezed in. I'll eat anything that gives me energy, like a salad or a protein dish with veggies. It's so important that I stay sharp and energized to get through the day, and my meals are a huge part of that equation," she says. "I tend to schedule the more administrative brain work on the earlier side of the day and the lighter creative tasks like photoshoots later in the afternoon. It's a fun way to end the workday."

"My whole life motto is to live a balanced life. There's no point in working yourself to a point of burnout if you can't reap the rewards of it," says Ramirez-Fulton. This is exactly why she tries to get out of the house for happy hour or date night with her husband at the end of a long day. And of course, she ends the night by unwinding with Clarins.
