Hello, lovely! Lauren here from Vandi Fair. Believe it or not, fall is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, that means you’re already thinking about fall fashion. One fun way to start getting in the mindset for the seasonal change is through nail color. Trends for nail polish hues are often in alignment with the trends of the season. Thankfully, fall 2015 offers color options for every palette, from subdued nudes to bold midnight blue, and you can get them all at Sally Beauty. Today I’ve put together four easy manicures that can kick-start your fall/winter style.
IN THE BUFF
Nude is one of fall’s biggest colors. From blush pink to beige, the soft hue was all over the runways, and it looks amazing in a shiny polish. What I love the most about this minimalist manicure is that it will go with anything you wear! The key when looking for a nude polish is to match your skin tone. I have a medium-olive complexion, so OPI’s “Dulce De Leche” blended flawlessly with my skin.
While nails lacquered in black were seen at the fall/winter shows, I prefer the midnight blue hues to get the bold look, like with this shade called “Up All Night” by China Glaze. I love the dark, rich color and what’s even better – I only had to apply one coat. To play up the midnight vibes, I painted little gold half moons at the bottom of my nails using Stripe Rite Paint Metals in Gold. This polish comes with a long, tiny brush that makes nail art for non-professionals like myself a cinch.
SILVER IS THE NEW GOLD
One of the things I love most about the fall/winter season is the sparkle that comes with it, and that can definitely be incorporated into your manicure. Although gold is always glamorous, silver was the go-to metallic offering in the fall 2015 runways, and it looks just as fabulous on your nails. I opted for all-over silver sparkle for this mani, and Orly’s “Ablaze Mirrorball” polish certainly provided. When the light hits, a rainbow of hues sparkles. I only had to apply two coats to get this sumptuous, sparkly manicure.
LADY IN RED
I always love a variation of red for fall/winter and this season’s beautiful oxblood trend is the perfect place to start for a manicure. I loved the gorgeous shine and radiant hue of this polish called “Sexy Silhouette” by China Glaze. To add a little bit of extra sparkle, I brushed the top of my nails with the Stripe Rite Paint Metals in Gold. This is the perfect mani for a fall or winter soiree.
