A change in season calls for a fresh look―and this fall, classic colours and modern art elements are trending in the world of nails. Decadent reds and knockout neutrals create the perfect canvas for the latest nail art designs, like metallic dots and ombré―two looks that rocked the runway during Toronto Fashion Week.

Rock On

A look from Hendrixroe’s fall 2017 collection

Hendrixroe’s fall collection says I’m-with-the-band, so nails have the same rock and roll vibe. A dark neutral shade, like essie’s smokin’ hot, is a headlining act on its own, but metallic nail art really cranks up the volume. Using a dotting tool (or the top of a ball head pin) create two lines of small dots with essie’s no place like chrome, starting at the base of your nails.

Seeing Red

essie’s too too hot; essie’s wicked

There’s something sexy yet sophisticated about wearing red, especially in the fall when darker hues reign supreme. At KQK, the ombré nails add an unexpected twist to its latest collection. Using two shades in the same colour family, like essie’s too too hot and wicked, apply two coats of the lighter polish and wait several minutes for it to dry. Then, paint both colours, side by side, onto a cosmetic wedge and dab on nails, blending it so the darker colour is at the tip.

Street Chic

Tailored looks with serious street style, like KQK’s two-toned minimalist dresses and jackets, pair perfectly with this season’s deep, rich nail colours. Swipe on a glossy top coat like essie’s gel setter and you’re ready for the runway.
