Colour Me Gorgeous
This month I'm going to look at nail colour trends for Autumn/Winter 2018/19:
Length - before we leap into colours, just a tiny bit about length. The trend seems to have moved to either shorter squarer or medium length oval shaped. So no agonising if you can't grow your nails super long!
Finish - whilst matte is still around, gloss and high gloss is very on trend. There has also been some semi matte finishes released - a kind of half way house, more like a satin finish.
So, onto colours...
Deep reds - this is the biggie for this Autumn/Winter. Burgundy, wine, berry, plum, chocolate red (yes, that really is a thing!). Just gorgeous, and one of my personal favourites.
Nudes - never out of fashion, but more choice than you might think - beige, taupe, pale pinks, gold or silver. So classy...
Earthy tones - a nude extension, but super easy as these are so neutral. Think warm terracotta, paprika and chocolate shades. Oh, and a little green, if you're daring...
Blue - another "in" colour. All shades of blue, but seeing quite a bit of navy. Nice for a change, and still rather sophisticated, particularly the navy.
Black - perhaps a little more "out there", but rather fun to try. Awesome for Halloween parties too!
Grey/lavender - these are quite tricky colours, and don't suit everyone. If you have a very warm skin tone (more yellow spectrum than blue), you might struggle with these shades. But, by all means, give it a go.
Metallics - always popular, especially in the run up to Christmas (gasp, did I say that already?). But beyond just gold, silver, bronze and copper. Think purples and greens too - these are very vibrant and not for the faint hearted!
Glitter - either colours that have a high glitter content, or you can add a clear top coat with glitter to add some sparkle to your favourite colour. Glitter polishes are notoriously difficult to remove, so be sure to hold a cotton pad soaked in remover on each nail for a few seconds. And be prepared to get through several pads!
Rather somebody else painted your nails? No problem - give me a call and book an appointment.
