Beauty Trend: Neutral Nail Polish

Dark nails are always a favorite, but the neutral trend for nail polish is taking a strong lead for Fall 2010. Nail polish trends take their cues from designer fashions, and it seems like this season we will be dressed in neutral from head to toe. From soft greys to pale nudes, and light browns to deeper chocolates, these nail colors are sure to hit your local salon soon. Depending on your skin tone, these nude shades will often blend in and elongate your fingers. With so many shades available, you’ll be sure to find your perfect match. If you are too apprehensive to go without color, then grayish blue and purple shades might be the perfect compromise.

It’s all about texture! Grey, cream, and nude clothes are perfectly complimented by a textured clutch and soft brown nail polish at Marc Jacobs (left). Bronze, smoky eyes and tan skin are gorgeous with shiny, grey polish at L’Wren Scott (right).

Offered in both matte and sparkly finishes, neutral shades are in abundance as a fresh option to rival fall’s traditional darker shades.
