In recent weeks, I’ve pulled out my old faithful Merle Norman Sunset Red (pictured above). It echoes some of the deeply hued leaves we saw this weekend in North Georgia, as we were visiting a beautiful college campus with my high school senior. I usually tend to blue reds for my lips and nails, but this one just seems about perfect for autumn, despite its orange-yellow leanings.
Another color that I’ve fallen for lately is Zoya’s Beth, a shade that would be great year-round and is fairly professional looking. Zoya describes it as “a soft, sandy champagne metallic” and places it in the nude family. It seems a little more metallic cocoa on my nails and has a subtle glow which makes it interesting and fun to wear. It definitely would be one of my “desert island” nail polishes.
Maybe around the holidays I’ll pull out a dramatic blue-red for my fingers and toes, but right now the tootsies are staying pretty bare. If I play my cards right, my hs senior might be coerced into painting my toenails, thus saving me a trip to the salon.
What about you? What are you wearing this autumn on your fingers and/or toes?
