Grays and Violets: Fall 2015 Nail Trends

Summer isn’t officially over until September 23, but people are already talking about fall trends! Today at the nail salon, I had NO IDEA what to do with my nails. After doing tons of research, I came up with the perfect nail plan to help you figure out what to do with your nails between now, and let’s say November.

Fall 2015’s hottest nail tones are gray, plum, and gold. If you mix a combination of the two, you. are. golden.

End of Summer “Transition” Nail Ideas for 2015: 

Since it’s still “summer” (even though I’ve already started to pumkpin-spice everything), your next few manicures should stay in the pastel range to maintain summery vibes while you can. As it gets closer to fall, start going bolder with deeper, glossier colors.

Beginning of Fall 2015 Nail Ideas: 

Start getting cozy with warmer tones like golds, and deeper, vibrant colors. You can add a matte topcoat to keep your look soft if you are still transitioning 🙂
