Earth tones and neutrals are in this season. Gravitate towards emerald green, eggplant, navy blue, chocolate brown and oxblood. If you crave something with a bit more pizazz, reach for your favorite shade in a chrome finish.
The most popular—and functional—nail trend of the season is a simple short and straight cut. For longer cuts, ask your stylist to create an almond shape—the stiletto nail’s slightly more sophisticated sister.
Gone are the days of quirky nail art. This season embraces minimalist designs such as a single stripe or a subtle half-moon in a complementary color.
