Why: With fall right around the corner, it’s time to start changing your beauty routine for the upcoming months. One of the easiest ways to gradually change your look for the cooler days is by starting with nail polish — not only is it cheap, but if you really hate the color, it’s a lot easier than trying to return a worn dress to the department store. Last fall and winter it was all about black, and it was discussed ad nauseam (when ten year old girls are sporting the look, you know it’s time to move on).
This season there’s a new crop of dark colors on the brink, only this time more sophisticated than black though equally as daring and statement making. For an alternative to the tried and true dark red, why not use a deep, rich berry color? A color I found that works well on everyone is M.A.C.’s Nail Lacquer in Dark Angel (below left). It’s romantic and mysterious, but safe enough to wear to work.
As we all know, gray is slated to be fall’s number one hue, and we bet this is one runway trend that will carry over into beauty. Ugh, but won’t gray make you look sallow and dull skinned? Fear not the dusting of silver shimmer, ladies; M.A.C.’s Nightfall (below right) is an eye-catching color that’s perfect for the weekends and lends a touch of the trend without going overboard.
