The Unexpected Fall Nail Color You Should Be Wearing

When faced with the difficult task of choosing a nail polish color at the salon, our eyes are immediately drawn to red, burgundy or navy. These shades just scream fall and they pair well with our favorite flannel shirts and sweaters.

But after being inspired by the manicures we saw at Karen Walker's Spring 2015 show, we decided to do the unexpected and go green.

The lush nail color looks stunning on both light and dark complexions. It also has a dazzling effect similar to emerald jewelry when accentuated with a shiny top coat.

We recommend keeping your nail length between short and medium to avoid looking cartoonish, and maintaining a shape that is in proportion with your nail bed for a groomed and gorgeous finish.
