Kelis and Cassie have both adopted a “take no prisoners attitude” with their fashions, and luckily (or unluckily) that attitude extends to their finger tips, while Halle Berry adopts the classic approach to beauty.
Trends for nail polish colors are a tricky thing because what you wear ultimately depends on your style and mood. Spring nail polish trends this year spanned the gammet from beigey apricots, browns and taupes to lollipop-inspired shades to pastels…as you can see – the palettes were very diverse.
If your mood says “wild-child’ like Kelis’s display of a multi-colored french manicure, then one nail color just won’t do. Get Kelis’s look by opting for three or four very pretty, yet fanciful shades from Perfect Formula’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection, Giverny & Jardin ($15, perfectformulas.com) to create your own customized french manicure.
But maybe you’re a more subdued “wild-child” which means you focus on wearing one hot pink nail shade at a time like Cassie did with a color close to POP Beauty Nail Glam, Colour Pinky ($10, cvs.com). This high-intensity nail polish (from a selection of 20) is just what the doctor ordered to give that pop of color your outfit needs.
Halle struck the perfect fashion chord by sporting one of Fall 2010’s nail color trends – grey. You can get this look by using Butter London Nail Lacquer, Chimney Sweep ($14, beauty.com) which is grey with a touch of metallic finish that comes across as soft and elegant. This is the perfect shade for someone who wants to be edgy, but works in a conservative corporate environment. Other nail shades that can be seen this fall are rich opaques like purples, oranges and blues.
Just remember that changing your nail color is one of the cheapest ways to update your look while accommodating your ever-changing moods.
