Six nail trends to fall in love with
Fashion forward nail tints and styles this season .
It’s time to give nail art a much deserved break and return to basics. It’s time to bring back the deeper, richer shades that signify cooler months. The latest nail update from international Fall/Winter catwalks: Super-groomed, painted and textured nails are back! Whether you’re preparing for a fun girls’ night out or a formal do, pretty up your pinkies and marry nails with accessories and makeup. Matching is the name of the game. Here’s a rundown on the hottest shades to own right now.
Ra ra red
Call it crimson, scarlet or cherry, but nothing spells glamor and mystery like ruby nails. There’s a subtlety and sexiness about burgundy that makes it a timeless style statement. Pair it with any colored outfit and always stay in fashion. Combine it with a crimson pout and understated eyes for an unmissable style statement.

Black as night
Bring forth your inner Goth in shades that go from the darkest greens to deepest navy and black coffee. You can paint dark shades on short nails but they tend to look scruffy and unladylike. Instead keep your duskier shades for nails that are just past the fingertip and filed to an oval shape so that it elongates the fingers. If black is too dark for you, rev things up with a play on a reverse French manicure or glossy French tips.

Luscious Very Berry .
Think cherries, plums, mistletoe and everything in between. The newest nail polish obsession is berry. Go from dark to bright with a hint of red. You could jazz up the look even further by adding a layer of transparent polish with silver or gold glitter. In fact, berry shades and wine stains are popular for lips as well.

Chocolate with a hint of cherry .
Think Buffy the Vampire slayer. It’s a vampy hue, luscious with a hint of decadence. It’s a shade that combines scrumptious dark chocolate brown with racy red. It’s a shade that Angelina Jolie or Chitrangada Singh could carry off with élan, sexy with a hint of sophistication. Wow your special someone by pairing it with a heart stopping lippie in the same shade.
Get it: L’Oreal Paris Resist and Shine Nail Color (Shades Merlot Red, Royal Plum), and Deborah Shine Tech Nail Enamel (Shades 14 and 29).
Combine with a matching lipstick. Try L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Intense Lipstick (Shade Intense Ruby) and L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipsticks made for Me (Shade Cinnamon Toast).
A shade that’s not quite purple or washed out lilac. It’s a wonderful smoky shade of mauve with hints of slate gray and metal undertones. Such a wonderful transformation of a girly color into a chic, woman-about-town tint.
Get it: Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus Nail Color (Shades Honor, Calming Cocoa), NYX Nail Polish Salon Formula (Shade Nude Taupe) and L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Vernis (Shades Beige Countess and Boudoir Rose).
Textures textures everywhere
Forget elaborate nail art and fidgety 3-D artistry. Textured nails are having a serious moment with every possible finish from sand, sugar candy, speckles and sea salt to contrasting glitter, feathers, smash and holographic effects. The name of the game is obviously to look as though you’ve slaved to get the nail arty look (without actually doing much). Texture is all about minimal effort for maximum impact.
