Nail Polish Trends 2018/2019
#1. Moody Tones
Naturally with the arrival of the colder months, colors get darker and gloomier both in terms of fashion and beauty. The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends embraced fall’s authentic side by offering up a myriad of darker nail polish colors you could wear with basically any outfit.
Phillip Lim showcased glossy nails in moody tones of dark olive, smokey teal and more. Tanya Taylor’s tipped manicures showed off a stunning cream end on a rich burgundy colored base.
Edeline Love’s chocolate cherry colored nails were dreamily and perfectly deep in color in a medium-length stiletto shape. Tadashi Shoji’s deeply colored nails topped with fine mesh were interesting and just the right amount of gothic glamor that also had a bit of a snakeskin effect to them.
Self-Portrait’s midnight toned navy nails are the closest shade to black that blue has ever gotten.
#2. Futuristic Metallics
Metallics are usually assumed to be shades of gold, copper and chrome. In recent seasons, the rose gold trend really took off, but now metallics of all shades are getting a lot of love as a fall 2018 nail trend.
Cividini showed a metallic olive shade that was designed to match the eye looks on that runway. Tanya Taylor’s silver chrome polish tipped with coral was an excellent choice as well. Naeem Khan really sealed the deal with prismatic nails in holographic blue and green designed to look like the beautiful shell of a Peruvian insect that really inspired him.
#3. Jewel Tones
The fall 2018 nail trends make sure you have enough bewitching jewel nail colors to choose from for the upcoming holiday season and beyond. Rich, refined and kind of mystique, jewel-toned manicure can elevate your looks to impressive heights.
Marc Jacobs’ nail polishes came in 9 highly pigmented and beautifully jewel toned shades that stunned everyone who cast a glance at them. The nail polish shades were expertly curated and coordinated with the looks for the runway, making them an essential for your accessories if you intend to stock your wardrobe with the offerings of the Marc Jacobs fall 2018 collection. Even some of the metallics had a jewel-toned vibe.
Self-Portrait showed off a deep sapphire blue nail polish that was dreamy and nearly twilight in color with a lot of shine.
#4. New Shades of Nude and Neutrals
The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends announce gold and silver metallic the new nude, which is excellent news for anyone who wants to wear something subtle with a good hint of shine. Light shades of taupe, beige and even olive green have made the list with soft, early translucent pinks to be considered the new neutrals and nudes. These nail colors include the universally flattering shades of gray, brown and olive, shades of nude that don’t amp up on the color too much, just enough to be unassuming yet chic.
Some of the newer shades like gray can be seen on the Eudon Choi. Taupe and beige options were included in simple artistic designs like those seen on the Adeam models.
Stella McCartney showed off the light pink that is often associated with nudes as well. Roland Mouret decided to wash the models’ nails in a more typically recognized nude.
#5. Glossy High-Shine Nails
Glossy-finished nails are always stunning and are a welcomed renewed fall 2018 nail trend. Christian Siriano’s stunning manicures featured several different and cleverly beautiful designs that shone with a high gloss finish. The shine only accented the mix of rich colors and metallics.
Phillip Lim’s models wore dark, moody colors with a ridiculously pretty amount of shine. The shine was so clear and bright it accented the range of colors showcased beneath the shine so well that the polish still looked wet.
#6. Glitter Nails
The fall/ winter 2018-2019 nail trends proudly state that glitter nails are in, and since we love all things sparkling and mesmerizing, this is our favorite nail polish option to try!
Cushnie et Ochs showed off a mostly ‘naked’ nail with a sprinkle of glitter placed at the tips. The look was natural, very elegant and not the least bit overpowering, which can be a tough feat to accomplish with glitter.
Creatures of Comfort showed off multifaceted glitter nail polish in a successful attempt to hit (or create) more than one trend for the fall 2018 season. The colors ranged in an ombre style, transitioning from one nail to the other in a sparkling design.
Ivory manicures sparkling with a shimmering finish were seen on the Preen runway for just another cool option to choose from.
#7. Richer Reds
Red is a classic nail color, but any fan of fashion knows that the shades of red vary and even include blues and oranges. Oscar de la Renta showed a glossy and deep red nail varnish. Zadig & Voltaire on the other hand (pun intended) showed nails that were a vibrant yet glossy cherry red.
At the Temperley London fall 2018 show, vampy red nails were back in the spotlight and giving this trend a boost. Peter Pilotto and Etro also paraded the models’ nails in shades of red as well.
#8. Matte Nail Polish
Gareth Pugh showed off extra long matte cobalt blue nails with cut-outs at the tip. They were unexpected and impractical, a very unexpected and edgy look to go along with the unexpected looks and styling of the show.
Stella McCartney also showed muted matte pink manicures that were the picture of understated. It is nice that the wonder of matte nail polish will continue to be a fall/ winter 2018 nail trend.
