NYFW Inspired Fall Nails

Fall is almost here and we are so ready for the cooler weather and what each season brings – new nail polish colors and new trends to play with! This year, we are loving some of the trends from NYFW and there are so many new polishes to recreate these looks on your nails. So, read on to be inspired by the next big colors and trends for Fall:

A lot of NYFW shows had quite elaborate nail art, think bejeweled 3D accents, fringing and elaborate stamping. While these looks are fun for a fashion show, they’re not all that practical for day to day life. We loved some of the simpler trends like mixing up the classic French manicure as well as using neutrals to create negative space manicures.

Spring and Summer are made for cute nail art, but I tend to tone it down a bit during the Fall and Winter months. Essie manicurist Julie Kandalec created three gorgeous looks using various Essie shades for the Tanya Taylor show, all of which use negative space to create a play on the classic French manicure. This trend that made the rounds during NYFW is perfect because it adds some flair without being too over the top. The Jenny Packham show featured negative space manicures with a gorgeous and subtle brown shade which we just love.

To recreate these looks you’re going to need some gorgeous new polishes (at least that’s our excuse for shopping), so we’ve rounded up our favorite new polishes that we think will look just perfect with these looks. A dark red is a must every Fall/Winter, it’s a forever color that will never go out of style. Each year, nail polish brands bring out gorgeous new versions and formulas of this classic color, but our must-have this year is Chanel Le Vernis ‘Emblematique’.

The classic darks for Fall are pretty much the same each year, but we have found some amazing twists on our most worn shades of purple, navy and dark brown for you to try. If you’re in the mood for a gorgeous vampy purple, try Deborah Lippmann ‘Love Hangover’. It’s a deep plum/mauve crème formula. It wouldn’t be right for us to not mention a glitter, so Essie ‘Dressed to the Nineties’ is our favorite color from the Essie Fall line. It is most amazing dark purple with blue/green shimmer through it creating an iridescent dream on your fingernails. The Tom Ford ‘Bitter Bitch’ is a coffee brown shade with an ode to the nineties and is so on-trend right now! It’s perfect for recreating the negative space manicure.
