Fall Polish Preview

10 To-Die-For Shades

Natalie,

That is a fabulous approach to entering the new season! As someone who always pays close attention to details, I rely on well-polished nails to set the tone of my look throughout the year, too. A little manicure goes a long way! Right now, I am ready to stash summer’s brighter hues for fresh fall shades. My fashion instinct draws me to deeper tones, like vampy reds, midnight greens and feminine greys, along with pretty neutrals and cool metallics, though I usually wait for the holidays to paint on anything too sparkly. To get more specific, I selected ten of my top polish picks to reveal to you today, including the stunning shade that was used in Derek Lam’s fall show. Peruse the entire fab assortment, decide on a fave—it’s tough, I know!—then head to the nail salon ASAP to get a mah-jor mani! xoRZ
