Fall 2012 Nail Polish Picks

2012 October 5

As I have mentioned, when it comes to my polish picks, I am decidedly classic. But this fall, I am thinking of coloring outside the usual bottle for once, and trying out some new nail trends. Here are the ones I have my eye on:

I have long been intrigued by navy nails and this pin has me inspired to finally give it a go. This deep blue shade from Zoya takes a color that could be a little punk rock to perfectly polished.

I have been staring at glittery nails all summer long thinking I was too old to embrace the look. Then I saw them on a work associate recently and they suddenly seemed more chic than childish, especially when paired with a simple outfit, clean make up and a no nonsense hair style (i.e. mine every single day). So for fall, I am going to go glitter and this Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance looks like the perfect place to start.

Grey is usually my idea of branching out when it comes to nail polish. But this new holographic hue from butter London takes it even one step further…without going too far. A nice, subtle shade that goes well with a fall wardrobe of black, navy, grey, and repeat.

I was obsessed with essie’s Bikini So Teeny blue this summer and this Blue Rhapsody metallic is the same light look with a shimmery shine. I will pair it with a dark outfit to make it stylish and seasonal.

Finally, with the holidays upon us and so many fun soirées sure to land on the calendar (I hope!), it’s time to give into gold and glam it up a little. MAC’s Marilyn Monroe Rich, Rich, Rich will amp up any outfit and if the name is any indication, make for a prosperous end to 2012! Now that’s a trend I can get into.

    See, now you’re just making me that much more determined to finally Do My Nails (it’s been literally months). Also, these would all look absolutely amazing with your coloring.
