The hottest nail trends for Fall 2014

BEAUTY TREND REPORT: The hottest fall looks to try now

ON TREND

Nail trends are now divided into two categories: texture and colour. Whether you’re wearing colour or have bare nails, experiment with finish, be it matte, high shine or opalescent. The best colours to have a major bonding moment with? Oxblood, blackened reds and deep jewel tones. Sophisticated and edgy are not mutually exclusive. See: Paul Smith, Alexis Mabille, Max Mara, Julien Macdonald, Nanette Lepore and Cushnie et Ochs.

Nudes are the new classic. Manicurist Michelle Saunders, who created a “tomboy beige” manicure at Alexander Wang, says that nudes will always be in style. Calling it “a really severe manicure,” Saunders used a “bite” of feminine sheer-pink polish over a matte topcoat to give an industrial feel to nails. See: Roberto Cavalli, Alberta Ferretti, Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Theory, Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang and Donna Karan.
