Shades Of Fall: From Head To Nails

Thanksgiving is on Thursday and we want to celebrate this beautiful fall season with luxury lacquer! Taking inspiration from some of the best Fall 2012 collections, here are some of our favorite fall looks and the luxury lacquers that complement them exquisitely.

Alexander McQueen’s fall collection was inspired by creative director Sarah Burton’s wish to represent the future as being bright. This collection featured ethereal, flowing gowns and plenty of feathers. The color palette ranged from pale grey, lavender and pink to ruby red black. The best lacquer shades to complement Alexander McQueen’s futuristic, feminine style are Deborah Lippmann Sugar Daddy, NARS Diamond Life and Dior Red Royalty.


For Balenciaga, Nicolas Ghesquière used exaggerated silhouettes and bold colors to create modern office-appropriate clothing. He beautifully matched typical professional wear like high-waisted pants, A-line skirts and boxy jackets with over the top prints and materials to create a collection perfect for businesswomen of the future. To achieve a manicure that is as funky as Balenciaga’s fall collection, try Tom Ford Ginger Fire, OPI Diamond Dust or Deborah Lippmann Between the Sheets.


Gucci’s sleek fall collection was inspired by romance and the 19th century. A rich burgundy, emerald green and black color palette seamlessly blended with a Victorian aesthetic to create strong styles. Lush velvet, tapestry jacquard and leather accents added even more drama to these beautiful designs. To bring out your dark, romantic side, try the gorgeous Chanel Vamp, Black Satin or Peridot.


Missoni’s collection for fall is all about by the great outdoors. Creative director Angela Missoni’s muse was “a girl who wants to lose herself in the wild but is stuck living in the city.” Missoni’s signature knits brought life to the clothes and were layered under heavy coats, luxurious furs and leather jackets. The color palette was mostly neutral, with some denim blue, orange and mint accenting chocolate brown and beige. If you love anything inspired by nature, then three perfect lacquer shades to try are Butter London Knackered, NARS Orgasm and Tom Ford Bitter Bitch.
