Oxblood: Deep blood-red polishes that contain hints of purple and brown will be huge for Fall 2013. This is a sophisticated polish that will look great with all of your everyday outfits!
Funky & Fresh Black Designs: Jazz up your nails with fun twists on black! Choose black tips against a white background, a black and white ying-yang design, a sideways French mani featuring a vertical black stripe against a nude background, or paint all your nails black with white half-moons at the base of each nail!
Metallic Polishes: Shiny gold and silver polishes were huge last year, and this trend is back and bigger than ever! For Fall 2013, choose metallic graphite, bronze, olive-gold, or chrome polishes to stand out and turn heads wherever you go!
Midnight Blue: Polishes in dark navy or midnight blue are the breakout trend of Fall 2013, as they celebrate autumn’s starry dark blue skies and crisp air. These hues will look stunning with all of your fave dark skinny jeans and cozy sweaters!
Amethyst: Enchant everyone with a dark purple, moody mani. This look is perfect for both everyday wear and a night on the town with all the girls!
Chocolate Brown: Who doesn’t love an indulgent hot mocha on a breezy fall day? Celebrate this wonderful autumn indulgence by adorning your nails with chocolate brown, espresso, or hazelnut polish.
Burnt Orange: In the fall, the leaves change color and turn a beautiful fiery orange. This burnt orange color will also look fabulous on your nails for Fall 2013! This hue is sure to garner plenty of attention at all of your seasonal soirees!
Squiggly 2-Faced Mani: This Fall 2013, paint half of your nails one color and choose a contrasting hue for the other half. Use a toothpick to add vibrant multi-colored squiggles on the darker half of each nail. This manicure is the perfect way to add a pop of fun color to all of your autumn outfits!
Solid Black Mani: In addition to funky black designs, manicures in solid black will also be huge for Fall 2013. For this look, choose a glossy black or go with a matte black polish.
