Nailbox Trendbox Pre-Fall 2014

The next edition of the Nailbox Trendbox is out and, for Pre-Fall 2014, my friend Sarah from Chalkboard Nails is the curator. You may remember that I curated the first Nailbox TrendBox, a quarterly nail polish subscription service that delivers $65 worth of product for only $35.

Sarah has a keen eye for color and her choices are so dead on for this time of year where one day calls for a sundress and flip flops and the next you’re pulling out chunky knits and boots.

With four nail polish shades to transition you from summer to fall, the Pre-Fall 2014 Trendbox also includes a matte top coat, making the collection even more versatile.

This Fall, Zoya is doing their part in removing the negative connotation I associate with satin. Maybe it’s just me but, outside of the benefits of sleeping on a satin pillowcase (it helps maintain a blowout), I always think of satin as being cheesy, like an 80s prom dress. Let’s face it, satin is a silk wannabe.

However, one look at the Zoya Satins collection for Fall 2013 and you know this is no shabby knock-off. It’s pure, luxurious color!

Essie Fall 2013 “For The Twill of It” Nail Polish Swatches & Review

If there’s one takeaway from my encounters over the years with Essie founder, Essie Weingarten, it’s that she loves fashion and color. Of all her seasonal collections, it’s the Essie Fall color palettes that express that best. Inspired by the textures and fabrics of the season, the Essie Fall 2013 “For The Twill of It” nail colors are rich, chic and utterly Essie.

“I love the idea of creating polish that’s like the proverbial boyfriend sweater – in this case, a blazer borrowed from the boys,” says brand founder and Global Creative Director Essie Weingarten. “Creating nail color with a warm and fuzzy feeling can be tricky,” Weingarten explains. “But when you get it right, it really is like putting on your favorite sweater.” Transferring the soft volumes and rich woolens of the fall runways, essie offers six seductively tactile shades that radiate beautifully tailored warmth.
