I’ll readily admit that I’m the kind of girl who obsesses over her nails: at least twice a month I’m at the salon touching up my manicure and treating myself to a spa pedicure, so it's no surprise that, even though it's still summer, I'm looking for fab fall polish shades. Call me an obsessive perfectionist, but I live by the creed that if I don’t look good from head to toe I’m doing fashion a true disservice. Of course, I trade in my stilettos for sweatpants every once in a while, but regardless of the outfit my cuticles are always well kept and my nails neatly filed. For many of us, lavishing attention on our nails requires an inevitable challenge. You walk into the salon, ready for an hour or so of pampering, and the first command you receive is to, “Pick your color.” Hold up. Choose my color? Again? I just chose a color two weeks ago. If you’re anything like me, twenty minutes of hemming and hawing ensues as you try to select a shade that a.) fits your personality b.) fits your wardrobe and c.) will fit your mood for the next two weeks. It’s quite a commitment. Thankfully, just as trends dictate clothing, they can be used to eliminate this anxiety-inducing ritual. As your next mani/pedi creeps closer, keep these seven fab fall polish shades in mind.
