50 Shades of Grey is so last season. This fall, it’s all about cloudy blue-grey hues that offer just the right amount of color for a manicure that’s fun and work appropriate.
Manicurists backstage at Nicole Miller use Butter London nail lacquers to recreate a marbled nail meets paint splatter. Have fun with your nail art and use contrasting paints for nails that make an impact.
The perfect compliment to brown skin is a regal-hued mani. Copy the models from Monique L’huiller Fall ’15 show and think:deep purple, violets and plums. Apply two coats to oval-shaped nails and finish with a high shine top coat.
Tap into your artistic side by adding painterly brush strokes over a clear mani like the models at Tadashi Shoji.
Mani’s this season are all about the little details. We love the zipper detail and hint of sparkle on this black mani from Tanya Taylor AW ’15.
If black nail polish is a little too goth for you, lighten the mood with a dark matte polish with a subtle shimmer. It’s polished and a little mysterious. For an added touch of fun, add a dark strip from the side of each nail.
Upgrade a basic manicure with something fresh like chevron.
Not a fan of extreme nail art? Keep is simple and add a metallic appliqué to your ring finger for an added touch of sass.
Cream polish is evergreen. Apply to oval shaped nails and finish with a shiny top coat. Instant classic.
Can’t decide on one color? Don’t sweat it— choose them all! Though, you may need to ask your manicurist to do this for you. Unless you just have all of the skills; if that’s the case, you go, girl!
Cinema buffs, why not have your manicurist recreat a reel on your nails? Opt for black and white or go neon for a cool twist.
Racer stripes add a cool girl vibe to a any mani. Using a thin bristled brush paint stripes own the side of your nails.
Negative Space lost it’s negative to the rainbow. Break up a color-block mani with horizontal rainbow stripes.
