Guess what Guys!!
My nails are finally healthy and back in order. It only took all of 3 months! My nail bed ridges are gone and I can finally scratch my head without my nails bending and breaking off. I allowed my nails to be free of all chemicals majority of the summer and I nursed them back to health by following my plan outlined in my Nail Rehab post. You better believe, I walked into the nail salon with much confidence a few weeks ago. I went there to get my gel manicure and realized that summer is over and it was time to pick fall colors. As I stood there trying to make one of the most difficult decisions of a woman’s life, it dawned on me that I should start researching hot nail colors and nail trends for fall 2018/winter 2019.
The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends are full of bold patterns and creative features that will elevate any look.
Here’s what I found:
Fall/ Winter 2018-2019 Nail Shape Trends
1. Short and Natural
Many of the fall 2018 nail polish and manicure trends were featured on nails that were short enough to be a practicality, another facet of wearable fashion that is often overlooked.
Long or short, oval nails are always going to be a winner. This shape is considered flattering as the curved edge almost mirrors the curve of the cuticle, which (in theory) is the ideal nail style for everyone.
3. Low Square Tips
The low square tip is a classic shape with a good, clean look that is easy to appreciate.
Fall/ Winter 2018-2019 Nail Polish Trends
1. Jewel Tones
The fall 2018 nail trends make sure you have enough bewitching jewel nail colors to choose from for the upcoming holiday season and beyond. Rich, refined and kind of mystique, jewel-toned manicure can elevate your looks to impressive heights.
2. Metallic Olive
Adding a metallic element to any jewel-toned shade gives the fall staple a whole new look. This would be the case for metallic olive.
3. Moody Tones
Naturally with the arrival of the colder months, colors get darker and gloomier both in terms of fashion and beauty. The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends embraced fall’s authentic side by offering up a series of darker fall nail polish colors you could wear with basically any outfit.
4. Rich Reds
Red is a classic nail color. Point blank period. My only suggestion is to research the various shades of red for the right fit (this would make a great blog post later down the line).
5. Matte Polish
In the world of nails, glossy finishes have always been the standard. Matte nails won us all over for awhile, then the trend fizzled out. I’m excited that matte is back all fall/winter 2018-19.
6. Glossy High Shine
Glossy-finished nails are always stunning and are a welcomed renewed fall 2018 nail trend. Polish so clear and bright, that it accents the range of colors showcased beneath making the polish appear to still be wet.
The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends proudly state that glitter nails are in, and since we love all things sparkling and mesmerizing, this is my favorite nail polish option to try!
