Get Polished: Nail Trends for Fall 2014
Without saying a word, your fingers can make a huge fashion statement. That is, if you know the polish trends of the season. This fall, the trends are a mix of subtle elegance and outrageously bold colors, along with matte tints and glittery party styles.
Avoid hemming and hawing for 20 minutes in front of the color racks at your next mani/pedi. Check out these nail polish trends for this fall:
Neat-o Neon: Summer may have slipped away, but you can keep the colors bright and sharp with neon nail polish. Take your pick – pink, green, yellow or orange. Whatever catches your eye in neon is hot this fall.
Okie-Dokie Smoky: You’ve heard of smoky eyes but why not smoky nails? It’s sexy and mysterious, a perfect way to enter a new season. To achieve the smoky trend, select your favorite nail color and add a hazy dark overcoat that will create a shadowy look. These lacquers are now available from some of your favorite brands.
We’re Talkin’ Teal: It’s not blue, it’s not green, it’s teal. This flirty color looks great with almost any outfit and will stand out among the traditional pinks and reds.
Heavy Metal: The heavy metal trend is about texture as much as it is about color. Metallic gold and sequin bronze are on point. These fun shiny colors with flakes of texture will make a bold statement day or night. Be sure to put on a clear top coat to keep your nails feeling smooth but looking vibrant.
Classy, Sassy Navy: Dark nail colors have gone from goth to glam in the past few years. This fall, a glossy classic navy is on trend. Fashion warning: if you’re going to select navy at your next mani, plan your wardrobe accordingly. That means no all-black outfits for a week. Instead go for bright colors to contrast your dark nail choice.
Naturally Neutral: Tan, cream or dusty pink are terrific choices as the weather cools. Select matte versions of these colors for subtle perfection.
Glitz and Glam Purple: When you’re in a party mood, go for a sparkly, glittery deep purple tint. This royal jeweled tone says, “I’m ready to rock and I’m doing it in style.”
This fall, let your fingers do the talking with these hot nail trends!
