The blazing heat hasn’t prevented me from coating my toes in darker nail polish hues (I’m currently wearing OPI My Private Jet, $9) and getting excited for sweater season. I wish it would arrive already. I’m a cool-weather girl.
I’m also a big fan of adding at least two or three new shades of nail polish to my collection each season. The ones I highly recommend investing in after scoping the Fall 2014 runway shows, beauty editor friends’ nails and my favorite brands’ latest collections are:
Essie Nail Polish in Dress to Kilt, $8.50 — a stunning and ultra chic deep red shade. I just removed this from my nails and can’t wait to wear it again. A classic was born when this shade was created.
JINsoon Nail Polish in Nocturne, $18 — I first saw this deep metallic gunmetal hue backstage at the Tess Giberson show at New York Fashion Week in February. It was nameless at the time. I immediately fell in love.
Butter London Alabaster Glaze Nail Lacquer, $15 — A contradiction to typical fall nail colors, nude and lighter, sheer hues are also hitting a high note this season. When this particular shade was used at the Lela Rose show, it was swiped diagonally on half the nail. I think it’s a great hue to use to create low-key nail art.
Which nail color hue will you wear this season?
