After years of languishing in the land of basic red, clear polish and the classic French manicure, nail polish and nail art is taking a front seat. From colourful French manicures with a twist at Jason Wu to Minx-ified manis at Amanda Lew Kee and half-moon nail designs at Dior, colourful digits are the new must-have accessories. For Fall 2011 anything (but bare) goes.
While pop art nail colours ruled the Spring 2011 runways (and are dominating the Spring 2012 catwalks as well) the cooler weather calls for a darker colour palette. Opt for polishes in bordeaux, military green and deep blue shades for the fall and winter months to come.
