Fall Nail Colors

Once the season begins to shift and the weather becomes a bit cooler and fall wear is practically part of your daily ensemble; I love all the options for fall nail polish.  My motto is, as long as the nails are manicured (and not too long), bold nails are a fun and great way to add style. 

Some of my all time fall favorites....

Wicked by Essie is vampy, dark rich hue that is absolutely perfect for fall

Chinchilly by Essie is more neutral as it is a sleek and subtle gray 
 Fishnet Stockings by Essie is romantic and opulent

Check out these celebs 

Eva Mendes vamps it up

Lady Gaga shimmers in gold

Dita Von Teese always rocks the red

Charlize Theron sports her nails in black

Whatever your go-to color may be for fall...embrace it and have fun!

Cat-Eye Comeback

Cat-eye makeup has certainly been creeping back in to the mix.  Classics such as Sophia Loren and Bridget Bardot mastered the art of cat-eyes, however, many current celebs have been rocking the flirty and alluring eye.  Use your favorite liquid liner and thinly line the top line of your lashes with a liquid pen.  Flick ends up ever so slightly right after the edge of your eye.  Have makeup remover and Q-tips on hand to perfect the look. Be sure to keep the rest of your makeup subdued to offset the drama in your eyes.

The color gray has never been cooler.  It's monochromatic feel is understated, yet classic and goes with practically everything.  Whether adorned on tweed, a flared trouser, a slimming dress, or even a fitted jacket; gray will leave you feeling anything but dull.

Jewel Tones

This upcoming season I'm certainly looking forward to all the beautiful jewel tones that can be worn.  Sapphire, emerald, citrine and garnet are just some of the dramatic colors that are flattering and absolutely beautiful.  These gorgeous hues command attention and are the perfect go-to color for a night out on the town, as well as a great alternative to black.
