Note from Audra:
These colors are so much fun I’ve decided to give away a bottle of each!!! Just leave a comment with the color you like the most and I’ll pick a winner for every color next Friday. Hopefully all the bottles will have been delivered to me by then! I already have Less is Norse on my toes…it’s a great Wildcat Blue and Auburn Tiger Blue 🙂
Nail Colors For Fall
By The Anonymous Aha! Style Editor
Today is the last official day of summer, so here is a preview of what I think the fall nail polish scene has in store for us! For the last several seasons I have felt that Essie did a better job with color that OPI. However the OPI Iceland Collection has really done a fantastic job with this fall line. I like so many of the colors that I am going to a do synopsis of the ones I love most from the collection.
Less is Norse Definitely my runaway favorite. It is a dusty navy blue that is very transitional for right this minute. I have tried navy in a few different brands because all the stylists are predicting this is the hot color of fall. Less is Norse is a tad more subdued than others resulting in a look that is more refined and elegant. I have been sporting it for a few weeks now and have gotten many compliments from women of all ages.
Rebel Without a Moss This is worth trying. It is a hunter green, which might appear intimidating in the bottle. Once on the nails it is a great color that will go with all skin tones and gives an edgy look. It is interesting because it becomes a neutral when you pair it with different clothing and lip colors. Try it with hot pink for a transitional outfit, or red for some drama.
Krona-logical Order While it’s primarily a deeply pigmented expresso color, and has hints of purple every so often. It is a little warmer and softer than you might think looking at the bottle, and it works especially well with fair skin tones.
Strong Coal-ition The perfect charcoal gray for winter. Once applied it gives off a very creamy appearance making the gray a little softer. All of the colors in the collection are very creamy and I think that is why the colors are so outstanding.
One Heckla of a Color This dusty purple lavender is unlike any color I have seen. It is rich enough to be very “fallish,” yet still a pastel. It looks great on dark skin tones.
You better get out there and try these, however, they are hard to find in stores. I hope ULTA is restocking soon, because they have been out of most shades at most locations for two weeks, but I am told new shipments are arriving Thursday.
Happy Fall Y’all! Ready, Set, and Go get your nails done!
