The IT List: Fall Nail Trends 2012

Usually, the arrival of autumn means deep burgundies, stormy navies, and rich eggplants in the nail polish department. While this rings true for Fall 2012, there will also a few other trends gracing the nails of fashionistas everywhere. Keep reading to see which polish shades and trends we’re most excited about.

Sticking with classic autumn shades is a sure way to be on trend this season and the rich colors look great on both short and long nails. Opting for a deeper jewel tone, rather than just black, is an easier way to sport the darker trend. A rich forest green or an opaque grape are both excellent choices.

Why have a traditional French manicure when you can put a little twist on it? Feel free to play with colors and textures on your quest for the perfect French. One look we love combines a matte polish with its shiny counterpart as the tip. Sephora by OPI sells a top coat that can turn any polish into a matte version that makes it easy to switch it up at any time!

The last nail look that is going to make a splash this fall is what we like to call the “Muted Mani.” Rather than bold neons or deep hues, it uses soft shades of grays, taupes, and nudes. If that seems too tame for you, add a sparkly top coat for an ethereal glisten.

What nail polishes will you be scooping up this fall? Head to your campus bookstore for all of the hottest Nicole by OPI shades this fall. Keep an eye out for our Pinterest board featuring tons of nail ideas, colors, and tutorials – coming soon!
