Pretty Peek: Best Fall Nail Polishes, Blue-Purple Edition Thursday 15 August, 2013
The best color group to bow for fall nail polishes—creamy blue-purples—are certain to strike your manicure fancy.
Today is the first day in months that the weather has let up—that oppressive heated humidity has lifted, even if only momentarily. So it’s easier to picture autumn; I can think about wearing jeans and boots without having the thought shrouded in sweat.
And I can think about fall polishes, and their moody hues, too. Of all the ones I’ve seen coming into the office, I grew an attachment to a color group that I truthfully haven’t seen before: creamy blue-purples. I told oribe.com these are the hues to get excited about for autumn; they really are very unique.
Here are the three that have my 10 tiny canvases clamoring to wear them—and I’m certain one or all of them will elicit the same feeling from you, too!
Butter London Giddy Kipper: I’m not going to lie to you—I’ve been very anti-iridescence for the last few seasons. Unless it’s full-on glitter and holographics, I just can’t force myself to wear anything pearlescent. Well, that’s about to change: Giddy Kipper has a slight swirl of silver running through it, and it’s the most beautifully radiant blue-purple that has this underlying depth and richness. It is my favorite color of the season, hands down.
China Glaze Queen B: Not as blue as the others, this creamy opaque is extremely moody. I think it would pair beautifully with a soft sky blue or even a bright turquoise.
Zoya Sailor: This color feels nautical, but only slightly so; obviously the name, Sailor, has you thinking of coasting over the ocean blue. But, again, this is purple-y at its core—a beautiful hue that deserves plenty of play on your tips this fall and beyond.
SpaRitual Midnight Stroll: You know when the nighttime sky reads more purple than blue? It’s a point when nightfall is happening; it’s dark, but wisps of the sun are left over. This is a gorgeous hue that captures that shade.
These beautiful fall shades will be out soon; keep an eye out for them!
I’ll be adding more “editions” to the “Best Fall Nail Polishes” blog series. Keep an eye out for that, too!
Which is your favorite blue-purple of this bunch? Sound off in the comments!
