Go Brown or Go Home

 This Fall, there are a number of chic nail polish colors to choose from when picking your hue.  The trouble is that not all of them are work appropriate.  I don’t know what my Boss would say if I wore teal or bright orange on my tips, but I imagine it wouldn’t be positive.  

Luckily, my favorite Fall trend, brown nail polish, is neutral enough for most workplaces.  It all depends on which shade you choose.

Myself, I like a little shimmer, so I’ll be rocking Espresso and All Hail McQueen.  I also love the sable shade, Prince Charming.  And for the chocoholics in the room, Suzi Says Da! is the perfect just-dark-enough shade.

So if you’re bored of baby pink and not ready for bright red, trade in your traditional polishes for a shade of brown.  It’s accessible, on trend and the perfect compliment to any skin tone.

    Debra Lippman's Superstar and No More Drama are also to diiieee for. I've been wearing superstar for a couple of weeks now and it's perfect for people with fair skin- the perfect coppery brown sparkle! Here's Superstar: https://www.barneys.com/Superstar/00505006246808,default,pd.html?cgid=COSME01

    My current favorite is called Tea and Crumpets by Essie…it's a very light brown, almost nude, and so perfect for the office!
