What nail color are you most excited to try this coming fall? When I was looking at the polish colors used on the NYFW Fall 2015 runway I noticed a ton of nudes, sci-fi shades in blues, purples, and greens, expected but still beautiful burgundies and autumnal choices, and my favorite for the season metallics. I love a good gold or silver nail in any season but this fall’s color palette is quite complementary to metallics. Silver and gold nails should be considered neutral tones. Just like pairing gold or silver jewelry with your outfit, metallic nails are easy to pair, yet make a much bolder statement. They can be soft and romantic or full on edgy. Instead of reaching for your trusty dark red shade this year, it’s time to get metal.

Creatures of the Wind Fall 2015 | PopSugar – Now for a little silver, which kinda looks more platinum to me but still, we’re going the cooler route in the nail polish spectrum. You’d think it would be difficult to pair color wise but this silver/platinum color goes with everything and really pops.
Luv Aj’s New Luxe Leather Collection | WHO WHAT WEAR – An oldie but a goodie. I saw this pic on tumblr and immediately loved the styling. I mean black and white and metallic, that’s timeless style right there. The nails are a little on the edgy side and this kind of high shine requires expert application but the end result is stunning.
