Autumn is hands down (pun intended) the best time to explore the latest in nail trends. So we set up shop at color mecca Nail Bar to test drive the latest in nail art and fall colors. With so many tones, textures, and designs to choose from, we edited our must haves to fit on one hand—literally! Here are our top five picks for the hot colors and nail art trends you must try this fall.
Give Teal A Twirl
Trophy Wife by Essie
Arin of Heart of Chic demonstrated our personal favorite of the bunch! A perfect deep shade of teal pearl, it looks smart on both manicures and pedicures and pairs back well with almost any outfit. It’s also DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free.
Dipped in Chocolate
Lady Godiva by Essie
Jill of Hot Pink Style has on the sinful chocolate color we searched high and low for—it’s a molten manicure of chocolate brown goodness, minus the guilt. It’s also DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free.
Jet Set in Jelly Plum
First Class Desires by OPI
On Jill’s nails of Jess and Jill, this gorgeous mélange of gold and eggplant shimmer truly radiates in the sun. So whether your travels take you to a little park nook with a book, or on a flight of fancy—you’ll feel regal with this deep plum packed with shimmer on your nails. It’s formaldehyde free.
Be a Color Chameleon
Kermit Me To Speak by OPI
Here, Keisha demonstrates a mesmerizing green and purple chameleon color. It reads dusty purple outside, then the perfect blend of purple and golden green indoors. This is a style statement winner for us—working as the perfect color match to any outfit, without matching exactly. Not Like The Movies is a comparable choice should KMTS (limited addition color) be hard to find. It’s also formaldehyde free.
Rock The French Chevron
Don’t Bossanova Me Around by OPI, Cashmere Bathrobe by Essie and Fine Gold Glitter by Color Club (The French Chevron)
Here, Willow wore Nail Bar’s secret to the super popular Chevron French. Both wearable and worth making a statement, we decided to give this design a whirl because we’re fans of all three color palettes. Don’t Bossanova Me Around (the base coat) reads as a pink-grey-nude (perfect for the office), Cashmere Bathrobe (the triangle color) is a true flannel grey you’ll always want to wear, and Fine Gold Glitter (the chevron) ties the look together.
