Ok, is it summer or is it fall?  Trying to hold onto those last care-free days of summer but also craving the coziness that fall brings makes it tough to choose the perfect nail color. The beginning of fall makes some of us sad that summer is coming to an end. But it also makes some of us excited for cooler temps, your favorite jeans and an oh so soft light sweater and…

darker nails!

Nail trends this fall range from peachy, mauve, cinnamon browns, deep reds and plums with some dark, rich greens and blues in there too! With so many colors to try, maybe it’s not so bad the colder seasons seem to drag on forever (looking for the silver lining here)!

So to start the fall off right, I’m going with OPI’s, Yes My Condor Can-Do!

This is a deep plum with a little more red hue than a true purple. It looks excellent on still tanned summer skin as well as fairer skin tones.  Dive right back into your dark nails with this one! Or, if you’re not quite ready, put it on your toes and pair it with a peachy neutral on your hands.

Another color option for September is one that is near and dear to many of us- GO GOLD!  September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. My family, like so many others, has been touched by the effects of pediatric cancer. Show your love to those beautiful, strong children and their families by wearing your gold. I love this combo of OPI’s, Machu Peach-U under OPI Chrome Effects Gold Digger.
