With Autumn just around the corner it’s almost time to get ready for the Fall and Winter fashion season and what better versatile accessory is there than nail polish? With just a half an hour or less to apply plus the occasional touch-ups, painting one’s nails is a fantastic low-key way to apply color to your outfit. From berry tones to jewel tones, there is a great swath of color to be had in the upcoming months and here are some great nail polishes to complete the look for this season.
Red is always the go to color for nail polish, regardless of season. It can be bold or subtle, playful or demure, all depending on the shade. A great shade to start with would be Blood Orange (gnp4) by Barry M. Cosmetics which is part of the Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint line; it dries super quickly and with a nice shine as well. Another amazing shade by Barry M. Cosmetics is Raspberry (273) which has a more magenta hue; it’s definitely a must have shade that works with almost any outfit. In fact, both colors can become the perfect compliment to a number of gorgeous outfits during the Autumn months.
One more glamorous red shade to try out would be Ruby Red Slippers by Deborah Lippmann. It’s a glitter nail polish inspired by the iconic Dorothy’s shoes and is perfect for any party during the holiday season from Christmas to New Years.
One of the fun things one can do during the Fall and Winter months is to match the weather outside with your nail polish. Two great whites that are sure to remind you of fluffy snow are Models Own Snow White and Barry M. Cosmetics’ Lychee (gnp10). Snow White is a very stark color that is perfect for those crisp winter days while Lychee, another polish that is part of the Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint line, is a bit more elegant and perfect to pair with your darker toned outfits as a great contrast.
Three more shades that can compliment any outfit, especially since they all have a touch of neutrality to them, are Models Own Becca’s Brown, Kiko’s Grey Green (394), and Barry M. Cosmetics Grey (293). The Becca’s Brown shade is the perfect shade of brown to stay on point with, especially for the trendy set, and easily reminds one of chocolate. The Grey Green (394) is a grey that has a touch of green to it, which gives it a mossy effect and is perfect for the transition that is Autumn. And then there is the Grey (293) which is great for any outfit that would work well with black but not going quite as heavy; it’s a nice mid-tone grey.
Finding these lovely colors or ones that are similar in shade will surely be a great compliment to one’s own nail polish collection and a great addition to the upcoming Fall and Winter fashion season.
