Nail Trend Fall and Winter 2009/2010

A woman's nails can really make or break her impression. Clean, tidy well-shaped nails is a must for every woman. Now let's see what are the Nail Trends for the nail-savvy women this season.

Shape and Length
Natural is the word for this season. Keep your nails in natural squoval shape. Square, the French way, has always been popular but natural shape is what you should go for. And keep your length keep them medium-long, the very long ones are a passé. The short ones are not only fashionable, but easy to maintain.

File nails into a square shape with rounded edges, keeping them a little longer.

ColourThis season’s colors are elegant, bold and suit women who love to take risks. Many celebrities and across the runway were flashing the look of high shine, to metallics (golds, silver, bronze), and glittery finishes. Dark cues were ubiquitous like navy blues, dark plums, bright and deep reds, greys and charcoals, deep purples navy blues, rich chocolate browns, copper, lavender and wines.

If dark is not your thing, go for glittery, sparkly and shiny look in your favourite hues. Classic red is always in vogue.

Chooing the Dark Nail Colour according to your skin colour

For light skin: If you have fair skin, opt for blue-based shades with soft shimmer, which will look crisp, not gothic. Reds or Crimsons with hint of pink or earthy chestnut with mettalic finish will give a pretty edge to your look. If you want something in shades of purple then a feminine berry would suit your complexion.

For medium skin: Opt for gold flecks and warm undertones which make even tricky colors, like purple, flattering if you have olive or tan complexion. Classic ruby red with a sexy metallic finish, deep violet with gold shimmer or copper would suit your skin colour.

For dark skin: You can take the dark nail trend to the extreme by opting for strong hues that border on black. Deep luxe burgundy, inky aubergine with high sheen or dark chocolate would make your nails pop.
