Hot Nail Trends for Fall & Holiday: Nail Expert Katie Saxton Gives You 6 “Tips” for Nailing It All Down!

Autumn is here and it’s time to start shopping and choosing your key looks for the season! You probably have already been starting to shop for fall/holiday staples like sweaters and skinny jeans, but one of the most key accessories — and beauty trends are all at the tip of your hands. While basic neutrals might be required at work, you might want to turn up the heat a notch for this fall/holiday season and ditch those from last season. While you can use select summer colors on your toes, your fingertips are all that’s really going to be seen on a day to day — even hourly basis!

Nail Expert and Custom Nail Solutions President Katie Saxton’s got you and your nails covered, as she gives you tips on the hottest nail trends of the Fall season! Drawing upon her experience in researching nail trends for Custom Nail Solutions and being a nail fanatic herself, Katie Saxton knows that crackle polishes and blue hues are out, and new nail colors and designs are in.

According to Katie, the hottest nail trends of autumn are:

1. Double Reverse French Manicure:
This is such an elegant look that features a dark color (such as black) painted at the tips of the nails, with the rest of the nail covered in a soft shimmer or clear polish.

Here’s a youtube tutorial (in Italian btw) to give you tips on how to accomplish this look. It’s not hard– and there are some tricks to getting it done easily — but go slow at first.

2. Black and Gold Nail Wraps by OPI:
These wraps are fast, easy to apply, and long-lasting. It is a very dramatic look that is great for evening.

3. Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color: You can achieve 3-D Nail Art in seconds with this fun and fabulous polish. You have several colors to choose from, and all you do is apply 2 coats, hold the included magnet for 10 seconds over each nail’s wet polish, then you apply a top coat. You will get a shiny, 3-dimensional special effect look. Available in Drug Stores.

4. Burgundy Nail Polish:
A very elegant polish that is the “go to” color this fall season. A smart and sexy choice would be OPI’s SKYFALL from the 007 Collection!

5. Matte Polishes:

A matte top-coat takes away your nail color’s shine and gives even the girliest polishes an edgy, modern look. Try out this unique style to stand out from the crowd! Ulta stores have a great selection as do most online beauty sites and brick and mortar beauty stores.

6. Complete DIY Nail Customization:
There is a new option beyond acrylic or gel nails if you haven’t been blessed with great nails. Custom Nail Solutions offers you the opportunity to “completely customize your nails in regard to shape, length, and color without having to make expensive and inconvenient trips to the salon”.

While not spending time and money on salon visits and being able to change your nail color without risk of damaging skin or nails due to acrylics or UV exposure in gel nail application makes a lot of sense. It also lets you be more creative in what your nails look like and it makes it easy to switch your look via polish or having a second set of artificial nails to have fun painting while you switch out from one set of artificial nails to another. You can become your own personal nail artist for less than 4 trips to the nail salon! It becomes your own form of personal art!

You can try out any — or ALL –of the above trends on Custom Nail Solutions’ beautiful, natural-looking, non-chipping, and everlasting custom-fit nails that uniquely fit only your nail beds.
