No nail polish wardrobe is complete without a striking, pillar-box red. Classic, yet so iconic that it’ll never go out of fashion, a red nail is bold, brave and makes a statement no matter what the rest of your look is saying. A statement piece in itself, this suggestively-named Mistress shade from nail aficionado Ciaté could just be The One.

Wrapped in its elegant black bow, the vibrant red is just bright enough to make it work for the summer sandal months, yet chic enough to be an all-rounder that you reach for come Christmas, rain or shine. Highly pigmented, one coat is just enough but two provides the wow-factor, and the ‘stiletto’ cap makes application flawless. A shade for all seasons, and with the brand’s expertly shaped flat brush and long lasting, high gloss finish, it’s the home manicure must-have.
