One of the easiest (not to mention most affordable) ways to update your look for fall? A fresh mani in one of the season’s hottest hues. Move the cheerful coral colors and lovely lavender lacquers to the back of your medicine cabinet and make room for these five moody, hot-right-now shades.
The Trend: Black Cherry
Ultra-dark jewel tones are a big trend this season including rich burgundy shades that’ll add glamour to your look for day or night.
The Trend: Oil SlickThis iridescent silver-grey shade represents a totally fresh take on the metallic mani—it’s a little bit edgy, a little bit futuristic, and it looks maj with red lipstick.
The Trend: Loden GreenReplace your go-to pale pink lacquer with cool loden green, one of the hottest colors on the fall 2013 runways.
The Trend: Blue SparkleNails are more subdued and moody for fall but there’s still a place for sparkle – dark blue and navy glitter polish feels right on point.
The Trend: Smoky Purple
We’re obsessed with dusky beige and purple shades finished with high-shine topcoat – the look is sophisticated but still interesting.
