Come September, the chance to paint on dark nails feels like a relief. After months of bright pinks, florescent neons or sea-inspired blues, wearing deeper shades on my nails make me feel a bit moody and mysterious and…dare I say cool?
Burgundy has always been a go-to (along with black) for fall and winter months—I love the sophisticated, wine-inspired hue—but this year I’m craving a little something different for my nails. A little more of a unique, off-beat fall color. Here, seven shades I’ll be painting on these next few months.
one: chinchilly, by essie | two: russian navy, by opi | three: power clutch, by essie | four: jade is the new black, by opi | five: toast, by RBG | six: crossroads by phillip lim for NARS | seven: fighter, by RBG
This season, I’m loving soft, feminine grays, like Essie’s Chinchilly, sophisticated navy shades like Russian Navy by OPI and barely-there nudes like Toast (what a great name!) by RBG. I’ll be rotating these all throughout fall (that is, when I actually manage to get a chance to paint my nails!)—what are you wearing?
