Fall lipstick trends go perfectly with Cabana Life clothing, but what about nail color? This is the perfect time of year to get a manicure. The sun, sand and waves won’t ruin it as quickly, so you can show it off next to our pretty prints. Here are our 5 top fall 2016 nail color picks.
All nudes are not created equal. Allure Magazine explains which nude nail polishes are the most flattering for every skin tone. Essie Mamba is a step up from a creamy blush nude. It provides a deeper, richer tone with more brown and beige. This is a great way to wear pumpkin spice when you just can’t take any more of it in your breakfast, lunch and dinner. It will subtly brighten medium and dark skin tones, and it will give the right amount of autumn warmth to lighter skin tones.
Essie Ballet Slippers
To me, ballet slippers are the essence of delicate femininity. Essie Ballet Slippers nail polish lives up to that ideal. It’s very sheer, so you might need to apply at least three coats for a more opaque look. The pinky-beige nude looks wonderful on every skin tone. It will offset some of the darker colors of autumn, and it transitions beautifully to your next tropical vacation.
Essie With The Band
This one has a burnt red tone that is reminiscent of caramel apples, brick fireplaces and autumn leaves. It sheds the pinks of the spring and brings in a deep russet glow, yet it’s not as bright and punchy as a holiday red. If you usually go for darker nail colors with brown undertones, take it up a notch with this fall standout.
Essie Power Clutch
This is the new fall neutral. The grey tone goes on flawlessly, and two coats cover completely but still have depth to them. The dark grey tone is warm, so it’s perfect for people who tend to turn to browns. It’s a nice cozy color for fall. Because it's finally #sweaterweather.
Essie Beyond Cozy
Speaking of cozy, go glam this season with a sparkly glitter polish. It pulls in the golden shades of the changing leaves while reflecting the sunlight that still beckons you to get outdoors and enjoy the cooler weather. If you just can’t bring yourself to bling this boldly, consider using the sparkle for an accent nail, or paint the bottom half of your nail nude and the top half with the glitter. Just remember: when you’re using glitter polish, you’re committing to the gleam. This stuff is tough to remove without getting sparkles everywhere. But then again, what’s so bad about a little SPARKLIN’?
Now you know what to do for your next date night or girl's night out. Just slip on a Cabana Life dress, glide on the perfect nail color and head out the door.
