right on the nail


A sweaty, celeb-studded LA yoga class might just be one of the best places to get an overview on nail polish trends. During the umpteenth downward dog the other day I noticed a concentration of both tawny and light (nude, cream, alabaster) shades as well as bold and dark (blue, charcoal) tones, with barely a red toe in between! I gravitate toward the more natural hues--I think an almost skin-matching polish looks fresh and easy (i.e., a refreshing step away from all the crazy nail art that's been hyper trendy for a while now), plus it can make your fingers and toes look longer and more elegant. After consulting some of my beauty editor friends, I've found some amazing colors to try from Ciate Ivory Queen, Essie Like Linen, and Butter London in Crumpet.

Butter London Cuppa is also another lovely nude! It's the perfect, trench coat-colored neutral (just the right amount of gray)!
