September 3, 2015

The weather is finally cooling down in L.A. I’m pretty sure it’s because I just took delivery of a sleek Dyson personal cooler/heater for my office! Now the days are temperate and pleasant – it’s always the way, isn’t it?

Anyway, I can start thinking about Fall and the easiest update of all is to paint your nails.

The forecast is for rounder nails. The square shape won’t be as popular though shorter nails are still acceptable thank goodness.

The colors are predictably Fall-ish but some of the styles are new and exciting. Geometric nail art has started to appear and the use of negative patterns, or colors painted over a nude nail.

Here are my picks from the Fall/Winter 2015 runways.
