It’s definitely unconventional to choose baby blue for a Fall nail color, but as we all know, there are no real fashion rules anymore. Just ask Jennifer Hudson or Nicki Minaj as they rock Baby Blue nails. To get this pop star look on your nails, try Nubar’s new “Jeans Collection” lacquer.

Much like the “little black dress”, a dark hue is always chic, except that black nails can give you a sense of mystery and sensuality as well. Take a look at mommy-to-be Hilary Duff along with Audrina Patridge, showing that black nails are great for almost any look. I’d recommend OPI Black Onyx shade. (For something truly pop star-inspired, check out the Katy Perry for OPI collection.)



Julia Roberts and Selma Blair natural nails


You can always just add a top coat for this simple look. However, there are tons of nail colors to give you the natural or nude look that we see here on Julia Roberts, Jaime King, and Selma Blair. Try for dozens of amazing hues to make your look as effortless as theirs.

Va Va Voom! Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and reality star-slash-designer Lauren Conrad sport this vibrant color, showing that reds can range from sexy to girly fun. Check out the new burgundy shade called “Carry On” by Essie or choose from their many other shades of red.
