I know you all love nails, now let us all have a look at the hottest nail trends for fall, courtesy of CND.
CND Introduces Fall's Limited Edition Colour and Effect
"Texture adds to the strength of the look - and autumn is all about dimensional manicures," says CND Co-founder Jan Arnold. Nails take their cue from striking blue-greens, effervescent reds, and offbeat beige, camels and grays this season.
Extravagant midnight manicures and tonal shades of heathered mushroom and gray nails complement this Fall's masculine palette of mossy greens, black leather and textured fabrics. To achieve Ruffian's "Lunar Eclipse" manicure, pair deep blue Inkwell with Gold Chrome around the cuticle edge for a metropolitan look. For greige nails like those that complemented Marc Jacobs' refined menswear-inspired collection, or Rag & Bone's chic boyish styles, use dark, concrete gray Asphalt. To get a denim manicure, try CND's limited edition Urban Oasis Colour, a spruce crème, or layer it with limited edition Teal Sparkle Effect for a greenish-blue glimmer.
Classic red nails make way for rich, darkly modern reds with a fiery, defiant attitude. Oxblood red Dark Ruby was topped with Super Shiney™ Top Coat for a provocative, 1930's liquid finish to accessorize the urban street ensembles seen at L.A.M.B. Porcelain doll perfection was achieved with Monique Lhuillier's ultra-shiny, molten manicure in Rouge Red. To reach ultimate glam status, sweep Crimson Sparkle over Scarlet Letter as seen at The Blonds for an electro-luxe manicure.
Glazed neutrals balance feminine tailoring and ethereal designs seen on the catwalk. To get the cashmere manicure from Behnaz Sarafpour, layer opaque, nude Desert Suede topped with Super Matte Top Coat for a touchably soft finish. For pristine, mattefied, limestone nails as seen at Jason Wu, layer Silver Chrome with Putty and Super Matte Top Coat.
