Red color always looks better on nails that are well shaped. If your nails are wide, taper the side edge and give it a round look. File long nails straight across and round the edges.
Red is going to be a big accessory colour for Autumn/Winter so make sure you have a red nail polish in your make up kit.
If you are feeling especially creative you may be able to create a dip dyed look with 2 or three shades of colour. E.g. a shocking through to baby pink, or navy through to sky blue. Start by painting the bottom of your nails in the darkest colour, then before they are dry, paint with the next, letting the colours run into each other.
