My mother-in-law is a creature of habit. When she finds a nail polish color that she likes, she’ll repeat the same manicure for weeks — sometimes months! — at a time. That’s not to say she prefers traditional hues. She’s currently sporting lilac nails and has previously gone through a greige phase.
On the other hand, I try to take full advantage of the nearly limitless selection of nail polish colors available to me, whether I’m getting a professional manicure or doing my nails while watching TV. I tend to gravitate towards seasonal colors — lighter and brighter in the summer, darker and richer in the winter — and keep a close watch on what’s popular online and in fashion magazines. You won’t see me wearing the same shade two manicures in a row!
I’m also the girl who stands in front of the wall of polish bottles at the salon sampling multiple colors on my bare nails. Sometimes I just can’t narrow down my choices!
If you can relate, here are five nail polish trends for fall that’ll help us both get in and out of the nail salon faster.
Unexpected light green: Revlon Entice, Essie First Timer, Top Shop Gone Fishing
Sexy and sultry burgundy: Nordstrom French Wine, Essie Carry On, Spa Ritual Solitude
Hip holographic shades: Urban Outfitters Pink Hologram, OPI Peace & Love & OPI, Tenoverten Wall Street
Military-inspired neutrals: Essie Armed & Ready, Marc Jacobs Dark Army Green, Sally Hansen Commander in Chic
Bright and bossy blue: Butter London Blagger, Nicole by OPI What’s the Mitch-uation?, Rococo City Slick,
Which fall nail polish trend are you most excited to try?
