Nail art trends:
3-D manicures: If you want to be a part of the more out-there upcoming fall trends, then 3-D manicures are where it’s at. Everything from jewels to studs to feather appliqués are in style for the fall season. It’s a step above some of the exciting new textures that have been appearing on the market, and this bold look will make your manicure the talk of the office.
Textures: Since OPI’s launch of its Texture Coats and Liquid Sand finishes, the popularity of textured nails has continued to grow. Glitter nails will still be a trend this fall, and exciting new combinations and finishes will take your manicure from typical to amazing.
Reverse French manicure: If you like the look of the classic French manicure but want to try something a little different, test out the reverse French manicure. It’s still a classic look that can work for the office and evenings, but with a fun twist. Instead of painting your nail tips a different colour as you would with the classic version, paint a half moon near your cuticles, and there’s your reverse manicure.
Metallic: From silver to gold, metallic nail colours and finishes will be seen all over the office this fall. A coat or two of metallic polish makes just enough statement for nails to get noticed, without being too in your face. What to try? China Glaze Awaken
Bright orange tones: Work with the colours of the season, and rock a stunning bright orange manicure. You can incorporate all earth tones and look to the changing leaves for inspiration. The weather turning drab doesn’t mean boring tans and browns on your nails. What to try? Essie Orange, It’s Obvious
Eggplant: This deep purple shade is a great alternative to black, and it fits in perfectly with the new fall trends. This colour works with all nail shapes and skin tones and can complement any outfit. What to try? OPI Vant to Bite My Neck?
