Metallic Attack~!

Normally, you save the glitz and the shimmer for the Holiday season or that fancy black tie event you might be so lucky to receive an invitation to -well that was back then and now ladies wait no more for those special occasions! Metallic nails are the new it shade for fall and can be worn at anytime, for any event and during any season. The best thing about Metallics is that the color pigmentation is usually deep so only one coat is required - which means less time for you to dry and more time for you to show off your haute nails.

Classic Metallic color palettes for fall are Champagnes, Bronzes, Silvers and Pewter or Silver/Gold if you will. All shades work can function as neutrals and will match almost anything - and for those of you afraid to try color, Metallics provide the perfect opportunity for you to dibble and dabble just a bit before you completely take the venture into the 'color' side.

Because I consider myself a nail dare devil and have probably tried shades that most people wouldn't dare, I have below my top three reasons why you should go for the Metal glow:

1. Add pizazz to a monochromatic outfit with a burst of sheen.
2. Because Metallics, are bright they give nails the illusion of length.
3. Simply put - it's Chic.

So girls, get your head out of the 'dark' clouds and walk into the 'light' - this is something I encourage you to try at home~! To get the look try the following paints:

Champagne /Bronze
OPI Designer Series Classic
Orly Glitz
Sephora OPI Fancy Schmancy
Stardust Deborah Lippman
Chanel Kaleidoscope
