Whatever your plans this fall—whether you are interviewing for a new job, attending an industry event, heading to a dinner party, or planning a girls’ night out—chances are you will need a fab beauty look to go with your chosen outfit. The only problem is figuring out where to begin, which brings us to today’s Beauty Queen story. We love starting our beauty look off with a great manicure—there are so many glam nail polish colors available right now—so we have rounded up a slew of ideas and inspiration to get you started! Ready? Read on for all the details on our favorite fall polishes!
Now, in the past few years, we have seen just about every color become an insta-craze—from mint green through to mushroom grey. This fall, however, there isn’t any one shade that is stealing the spotlight, which is perfect for the girl who can’t make up her mind! So, where to begin? If you want a color that feels bold, but isn’t over the top, we suggest you take notes from Elizabeth Olsen, who recently painted her nails in a pretty blue hue. This is a color that will stand out, especially when you pair it with black and white pieces, as Elizabeth has done, but it stills has an air of sophistication about it. Our favorite blue polishes this season include Nubar’s Nail Polish in Boyfriend Jeans ($19.99) and Chanel’s Le Vernis in Coco Blue ($29). If, on the other hand, you want a classic and timeless hue, you can never go wrong with a deep burgundy red, as spotted on Rachel Zoe. The look is ultra-chic and will look amazing when paired with a similar shade of lipstick. To try a pretty red polish this fall, we suggest you check out China Glaze’s Nail Lacquer in Loft-y Ambitions ($3.99) and MAC’s Nail Lacquer in Get Noticed ($16).
Of course, as fashion fans, you probably paid close attention to the fall shows, which means you know that jewel tones were a major theme on the catwalks. On that note, why not let that theme transition itself into your beauty kit, the way Evan Rachel Wood has done. Yes, Evan was recently spotted wearing a pretty shade of emerald polish that we just die for! Why do we love it? We love that at certain angles it looks like a classy dark polish, but when it hits the right light, you see that it is really a shimmering green. You can make this look your own by checking out polishes like Butter London’s Nail Lacquer in Thames ($14) and NARS Cosmetics’ Nail Polish in Night Porter ($17). Of course, some of you may want an equally stylish look without the hint of color. If that is the case, do as Nicole Richie has done and opt for a dark polish. Naturally, a black polish will go with just about everything you wear, but we are also particularly partial to chocolate brown and steely grey. Our favorites? We love NARS Cosmetics’ Nail Polish in Galion ($17), OPI’s Nail Lacquer in Get In The Expresso Lane ($8.50), and Deborah Lippmann’s Nail Lacquer in Stormy Weather ($16).
