#1. Moody Tones
Naturally with the arrival of the colder months, colors get darker and gloomier both in terms of fashion and beauty. The deeply colored nails topped with fine mesh were interesting and just the right amount of gothic glamor that also had a bit of a snakeskin effect to them. Self-Portrait’s midnight toned navy nails are the closest shade to black that blue has ever gotten.
#2. Futuristic Metallics
Metallics are usually assumed to be shades of gold, copper and chrome. In recent seasons, the rose gold trend really took off, but now metallics of all shades are getting a lot of love as a fall 2018 nail trend.
Cividini showed a metallic olive shade that was designed to match the eye looks on that runway. Tanya Taylor’s silver chrome polish tipped with coral was an excellent choice as well. Naeem Khan really sealed the deal with prismatic nails in holographic blue and green designed to look like the beautiful shell of a Peruvian insect that really inspired him.
#3. New Shades of Nude and Neutrals
The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends announce gold and silver metallic the new nude, which is excellent news for anyone who wants to wear something subtle with a good hint of shine.
Light shades of taupe, beige and even olive green have made the list with soft, early translucent pinks to be considered the new neutrals and nudes. These nail colors include the universally flattering shades of gray, brown and olive, shades of nude that don’t amp up on the color too much, just enough to be unassuming yet chic.
#4. Richer Reds
Red is a classic nail color, but any fan of fashion knows that the shades of red vary and even include blues and orange nail polishes. Oscar de la Renta showed a glossy and deep red nail varnish. Zadig & Voltaire on the other hand (pun intended) showed nails that were a vibrant yet glossy cherry red.
At the Temperley London fall 2018 show, vampy red nails were back in the spotlight and giving this trend a boost. Peter Pilotto and Etro also paraded the models’ nails in shades of red as well.
#5. Matte Nail Polish
Gareth Pugh showed off extra long matte cobalt blue nails with cut-outs at the tip. They were unexpected and impractical, a very unexpected and edgy look to go along with the unexpected looks and styling of the show.
Stella McCartney also showed muted matte pink manicures that were the picture of understated. It is nice that the wonder of matte nail polish will continue to be a fall/ winter 2018 nail trend.
