If you were to own just three nail polish shades, what would they be? M.A.C's Amber D tells us hers.

"I'd say a light nude-y peachy pink, something to enhance your natural nail. A vampy purple black for a bit of drama, and a classic red."

Amber's top tip: "You should always have darker shades on your toes than your fingers - it's weird to have dark nails and bare or light toes. It's something I've been thinking about a lot lately!"

What are your three favourite nail polish colours?
