Fall is “finally” here…hm maybe not quite. It was over 100 degrees in Southern California yesterday! For me, I’m ready for some Fall colors on my nails!
As Revlon’s Global Nail Stylist, I wanted to come up with some tips for how different your nails can look with just 4 colors. These designs all look completely different but use the same colors, and I think they’d look awesome incorporated together in their own mani!
- Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in Perfect Pair – a different take on a nude, has a bit more pink tones to it but I love how opaque it is. A nude polish is a definite staple in my Fall color kit!
- Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in High Roller – a deep plum with a subtle blue shimmer. Have I mentioned I love dark colors for Fall? At first glance on the nail it looks nearly black, and I love colors like this on short nails.
- Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in Double Down – a copper/rose gold metallic. Metallics are IN for Fall. As seen on nail #2, this color blends amazingly in a gradient.
- Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy in Ace of Spades – a dark grey? Count me in! Another dark shade for Fall that I love – a perfect neutral.
- Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat – these shades were meant to be paired with this amazing top coat. So glossy and I love that it doesn’t smear my nail art. The Gel Envy line is longwear, and this top coat does wonders for your mani!
THE NAIL ART
- Dry Brush – The easiest design of the bunch. I began with a base of Ace of Spades. Then, with the rest of the colors I wiped off 90% of the polish off the brush and lightly swiped on the nail in different directions. To blend them together , go back in with your base color. Great for Fall because the color options are endless.
- Sided Gradient – I’ve always been a fan of the gradient nail, so for this Fall I say we take it up a notch! Use a makeup sponge to blend the colors. Then using the brush straight out of the bottle I painted colors on each side.
- Geometric Negative Space – Negative space is always trending, so switch it up by adding some more geometric features. I did this by hand, but adding a stripe of tape in the center makes it so easy.
- Funky French – French nail art for Fall is classy and definitely office appropriate. By adding in some extra details it still is understated but fun.
What do you guys think of these Fall nail art designs? Which ones are you going to try out for yourself? Let me know in the comments!
