Nail your fall manicure
When it comes to the beauty world, the transition from summer to fall is pretty significant, as both
skincare and make-up require a total overhaul to match cooler temperatures and changing wardrobes. But a great way to make the shift a little easier is by changing up your manicure with one of the season’s flattering nail polish hues. Here are our top trends to try.
Now’s the time to step away from the pastels of summer and look to neutrals which will pop against you skintone and complement your everyday wardrobe. Sonia Hully, founder of Nailberry, says this season’s nude has creamy, fresh finish which oozes sophistication.
“A/W 2016 is all about nudes reimagined, muted dusted shades that look beautiful on all nails,” she told Cover Media, adding that nudes look best on one particular nail shape. “Rounded, natural-shaped nails are timelessly chic.” If you’re new to nude nails, Nailberry’s Au Naturel, a light beige with a hint of pink is a great option to experiment with.
If neutrals don’t tickle your fancy, look to smooth dusky rose shades for a fashion-forward alternative. Based on one of Pantone’s colour picks for the year, quartz pinks such as Nailberry’s Love Me Tender or Topshop’s Prim and Proper are both long-lasting and versatile, with the hue transitioning perfectly between summer’s hot pinks and winter’s berry reds. For a bit more edge, Butter London’s Toff Nail Lacquer is a darker, dustier pink with slight brown undertone.
There’s something so chic about a navy polish, dark enough to exude confidence but not quite as heavy as black or grey. Try this royal hue with Ciaté London’s Gelology Paint Pot in Midnight in Paris. This smooth polish is a rich blue with flecks of glistening silver to ensure your mani shines as bright as the stars. Or embrace the trend with Essie Midnight Cami nail polish, a twilight dark blue with chip resistant formula and whimsical feel.
