Dark and Plummy

Dark Nails for Fall

Though most of the year I have very light-colored nail polish on (if any at all), this time of year somehow necessitates that I switch to a dark nail color, if only for a few weeks.  I know that Fall has truly arrived when I change from one of my translucent pale pinks to a dark plummy (and nearly black) red.

This year, it’s also the perfect way to experiment with the maroon color that is everywhere.  If you’re not ready to look for a burgundy bag (but, seriously, how cute is this one?) , your nails can still add the pop of dark red that signals cooler days are upon us and Fall fashion has landed.  It feels a little bit more serious (and fashion-forward).

I’m currently sporting OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark, which has been a perennial favorite of mine since forever (college, maybe?).  But there are lots of takes on the same look, and you’re sure to find one in your favorite nail polish range.
