Amidst all the readings that you need to catch up on and papers you need to finish writing before midterms come along, for some girls, painting their nails is a great way to escape the college stress even for just an hour.

"Should I go for a flashy, yellow color for the summer?" or "Should I stick to a classic red?," the possibilities are endless! So to make sure that painting your nails will always be therapeutic even with the college stress and that your nail game is always on-point, we're sharing with you that nail polish colors that are universally flattering whether you have a fair skin tone or a dazzling tan.

Although the color white screams fresh, white nails aren't for everyone. Instead, opt for pastel pink nails as an alternative. It looks just as soft and dainty as the color white, but it gives an illusion of bigger nail beds, too!

Whether you're a girly girl or not, you have to admit that the rose gold hue is too pretty for words. Plus, not only does it look pretty and trendy, this shade is perfect for any skin tone as well. So when in doubt, you know rose gold nails will do the trick.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
