Red nails are such a classic look, but if you're bored with the classics there are so many different shades of red. From orangey red, pinky red, and dark blood red, there's a shade of red for every skin color, taste or outfit. So if you want to nail the red polish look this summer, bag yourself one of these gorgeous shades …

1. Olivia Palermo for Ciaté - Hutch

Olivia Palermo for Ciaté - Hutch

If you're a fan of Olivia Palermo's style, you'll be pleased to learn that she's now creative director for cosmetic company Ciaté London. Among her creations is this lovely nail polish, in a slightly softer shade of red (if red can be soft!). It's a limited edition, so grab it while you can!

2. Christian Louboutin - Rouge Louboutin

Christian Louboutin - Rouge Louboutin

Since the famous red sole on Louboutins was inspired by nail polish, it seems only fitting that the brand has now produced a nail color. With a $50 price tag, it's definitely a luxury purchase, but the design of the bottle is absolutely beautiful. So fashionistas with plenty of spare cash should treat themselves to this luxury red polish.

3. Nails Inc - Fahrenheit

Nails Inc - Fahrenheit

If you don't quite fancy paying $50 for a tiny bottle of nail polish, this brand is more budget friendly. For a fraction of the price of the Louboutin bottle, you can choose from several reds by Nails Inc. My favorite is Fahrenheit, a darker red, but there are also sparkly, pinky and orangey reds.

4. Julep - Marsala

Julep - Marsala

If bright red is too bright for you, opt for a very dark red like this polish from Julep. It's a brownish red named after marsala wine. Darker reds are ideal for when you want your nails to look classic. For a brighter, more fun red, choose the shade 'Myrtle'. There's also an orangey red (Sydney) that would look great on the beach.

For something really special, bring some love into your life with this limited-edition nail polish courtesy of model/presenter Alexa Chung. It's a clear polish with tiny red hearts that are sure to get attention. You can use it as a top coat for another polish for an extra-special effect.

6. The New Black Glimmer Twins - King Crimson

The New Black Glimmer Twins - King Crimson

If you enjoy creative nails then opt for this twin set of glittery polishes. The tow shades are complimentary, so you can play around with different combinations. Try one as a base coat and the other as a top coat, or use one on your toes and the other on your nails. You could even apply them in alternating stripes for a subtle effect. Play around with them and have fun!

7. Butter London - Pillow Box Red

Butter London - Pillow Box Red

Here's a true pillar box red for that classic nail look. If you've been to London, it'll remind you not only of the pillar boxes, but also the classic London buses. So here's the shade if you're feeling nostalgic! There's also a striking metallic red called Knees Up, a pinky red called Blowing Raspberries, and a lovely darker red called Saucy Jack. So there's a red polish for every taste!
