The Makeup Examiner’s Fall 2013 Nail Trends Guide


Perhaps some people are so over seeing nail art, but one peruse on Pinterest and you’ll happily see that the nail art trend isn’t going away anytime soon. As The Makeup Examiner has written before, nails are the final frontier of acceptable self-expression. While we may not break out our sexy red lipstick or our favorite pair of funky earrings to work, we can still sport expressive nails and no one is likely to say anything.

Although nail art is a form of unique self-expression, it’s time to change up the colors, designs, and check out the new nail lacquer offerings for Fall 2013. To bring you current with what’s in store for your manicure, The Makeup Examiner has put together a list of the best Fall 2013 nail trends. And, oh my, brands have been hard at work creating everything from easy-to-use textured finishes to insane holographic shine, and amazing seasonal colors.


Oxblood - This deep, rich red is a TME favorite and is a color that will carry all the way through winter. Pictured are Tom Ford Beauty Nail Lacquer in Bordeaux Lust ($32), Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored High-Shine Nail Lacquer in Jezebel ($18) and Zoya Nail Polish in Janice ($8).


Navy -NARS Nail Polish in 413 BLKR ($19), Essie Nail Polish in After School Boy Blazer ($8), and OPI Nail Lacquer in Incognito in Sausalito ($6.95).



Amethyst - Lancôme Vernis in Love in Purple Fiction ($15), Zoya Nail Polish in Neve ($8) and China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Charmed I'm Sure ($3.99) all offer a perfect breakaway from bright purple.


Coffee -The best way to describe this color trend is “Coffee the way you take it!” Some days The Makeup Examiner likes it straight up like Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Taint ($17) and sometimes it’s more like SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in UnComplicated ($12). No matter how you like your coffee, stick with the warm tones in this hue and you can’t go wrong.


Burnt Orange - Initially, bright orange dominated everything from lipstick to blusher to polish for Summer 2013, now that we’re moving into the cooler months, burn it! Butter London Nail Lacquer in Sunbaker ($15), Priti Nail Polish in Giant Granadilla ($13.50) and Ciate London Nail Polish in Skinny Dip ($15) offer the perfect hues of Burnt Orange for Fall 2013.


Steel Grey - Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Pedal to the Metal and Impeccable Greys ($3.99 each) and RBG Nail Color in Steel ($16) offer multiple options for this season’s grey hue


Metallic Colors - Estée Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting Nail Lacquer - Tom Pecheux's Metal Mania ($20 each), Topshop Nail Polish in Hart of Gold ($12), OPI Nail Lacquer in Peace, Love, and OPI ($9), Orly Nail Lacquer in Angel Rain ($8), and Essie Nail Polish in For the Twill of It ($8). This array of metallic shades shows the versatility and pure fun of this season’s trend. Metallic will easily carry you through into the winter months too!



Texture Me - For those that love textured nail polishes and lacquers, this season has no shortage of offerings. From matte finish glitter to high gloss sequin, you are only bound by your imagination when it comes to textured polishes. Pictured here are Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Nail Color in Tight Knit and Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Sugar Fix ($5.99 each).
