The Highest Ranked Red Nail Polish Right Now

Just like a swipe of your favorite lipstick, nails can be the perfect finishing touch to an outfit whether it's a pop of peach or glossy gel. One shade we think everyone should own is a classic red. Since there are so many options to choose from, we thought we'd turn to our buddies at Rank & Style to give us the scoop on the best red nail polish we should cash out for.

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style named OPI's Big Apple Red the winner. It has received rave reviews online and is an editor favorite.

On Amazon, user Kat D wrote, "Amazing color! I was eating in a restaurant in Brooklyn when this woman sauntered in and sat down next to me with her perfectly manicured nails. I could not stop staring at the perfect shade of red on her fingers and had to stop her mid-bite to inquire about the polish. She said it was OPI Big Apple Red. I ran home. Ordered it. It arrived. I slathered it on my nails. I have now become the well-put together woman with amazing nails that strangers admire. Mission accomplished. This is a gorgeous color and the perfect shade of red. I hope OPI never ever stops making it."

The creamy shade pairs well with nearly any outfit and lasts for days without chips and the need for touchups. It's the perfect hue to add to your nail polish collection — we all need a timeless red in our arsenal.
