- Blue, blue and more blue
Blue polish is back! The hottest color in the nail polish world this season seems to be this gem (and my favorite color also). Every company has released at least one blue polish in this fall’s collection. And the craze that Chanel created with their Les Jeans collection, followed by Nubar Jeans collection brings a new shade to the show: the denim inspired blues. The possibilities are endless. Just pick your favorite!
- The funky French
Classic French manicures are so outdated. Instead try adding color to your tips. You can use tape for crisp lines like I did here. Or you can try “the new French” with almond shaped nails (youtube tutorial here). You can also do a reverse French by adding a different color near the cuticle line. We’ve already seen the half moon manicure all over the catwalks in the last years. There’s also a new addition with the Ruffian. You can read more about these here.
- Matte nails
Matte polish has become popular over the last few years and is particularly great for the fall. Several brands carry matte shades that you can choose from, or you can get a matte top coat that can turn any of your colors into a matte one.
- Army greens
- Gold and mustard
I must admit this is not for everyone. These colors are those “ugly but pretty colors” that are not enjoyed by everybody. First we have Chanel Peridot, a multi-chrome polish that can easily be described as green or gold because of its many reflections. There are already some similar shades out on the market and I’m sure new ones are going to come out soon. In the similar range we have the mustard colored China Glaze Trendsetter (and other similar shades) that is definitely a love or hate polish.
- Magnetic polish
- Jewel tones
We’ve seen these on the catwalk and in the fashion stores, but also on the nails. If you’re not bold enough to wear them in your outfit, you can still make a great fashion statement with your polish. Also great for that pop of color added to the fall colored outfits.
