The color palette for fall 2008 features some lovely mauves and cocoas for eyes and lips. Remember the piece we did in July about Bobbi Brown's Fall 2008 Mauve Collection? Just stunning, soft, yet rich colors of autumn.
And now, you're wondering about your nails. To tie the whole look together, aim for the hot new, dark, rich nail colors for fall. Just remember to keep your nails short and groomed, to avoid that goth look, and you know what we mean. And be mindful of nail chips. Chipped dark nails are never pretty on anyone.
Here are 3 dark rich nail lacquers everybody is going gaga over:
Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer in The Good Earth from the Autumn in the City Collection ($6, drugstores). A silky, dark chocolate brown with subtle gold flecks.
OPI Nail Lacquer in Louvre Me Louvre Me Not from the La Collection de France Fall 2008 ($8.50, drugstores). A smoky violet shade of gorgeous.
Dior Vernis Nail Polish in Poison Blue ($19, http://www.sephora.com/, fine dept. stores). A mysterious, deep midnight blue shade.
