This past September, major cities worldwide debuted the cream of the fashion crop during Fashion Week 2011. And as you know, every element and accessory is important, down to your fingertips. Now in October, it’s time to put to work what we learned during FW2011.
Aija Vilemsonne, creative director of Pretty Women USA has some great insight on how to really polish your look. First of all, experiment. “The most important thing to remember about nails is to have fun with it. Make mistakes, test out new colors, and see what you think works best for you,” says Aija. Here are three trends to try out…
Be blue. This Winter, break out the icy blues and show off your blue crush. Aija says the blue trend is perfect for fairer skinned females so opt for pale, pastel blues.
Sparkle and shine. Metallic is the “colorless” trend of the season. “You can customize the trend to work for you,” says Aija.
Go in the buff. Nude nails rounds out the top three nail trends. Once applied, a dried, nude color can clash with your skin tone so choose a shade that matches the undertones. Camel and peachy colors for those with creamy ivory and golden brown skin tones, peach skin tones should go with a beige shade, and rosy nudes for “Summer” skin tones that will match rosy cheeks.
