One of my favorite parts about entering a new season is how the shift in weather brings about a shift in our moods, and how that mood shift then translates to a change in colors in our wardrobe, hair, and makeup. While summer is usually about keeping things light and bright, fall always tends to be deeper, darker, and richer. I asked our lovely in-house makeup artist April for her favorite nail trends for Fall 2013.
Metallics are certainly hot this season, in all different hues. April recommends Essie’s Nothing Else Metals, which has a beautiful purplish undertone. Keeping it metallically basic, we also love Essie’s No Place Like Chrome, pictured below.
We’re obsessed with black nails for fall, and this year we like adding a little bit of added excitement. Here we used Maybelline’s Color Show Nail Lacquer in Onyx Rush as a base and then created a half moon shape at the tip of the nail with Free People polish in gold.
Red is always a staple when it comes to fall nails, and this season we’re going deep and moody. April recommends Chanel’s La Vernis Nail Colour in Rouge Noir as a go-to for this season.
Which trend will make its way onto your nails this fall?
