New Year, New You, New Nail Color. The Shades You Must Try in 2019
Let’s wave a dazzling hello to 2019! We hope your NYE celebration was filled with champagne and dancing, but now it’s time for a fresh beginning, starting with resolutions.
To help you out, we’ve got a resolution nailed: The shades you must try in 2019. From runway favorites to classic shades reinvented, we’ve got a nail polish for every type of shape and nail size. Plus, we included some advanced techniques if you’re looking to make nail knowledge part of your new year.
We’re calling it, gray is the new black, so switch your Lincoln Park After Dark for Steel Waters Run Deep. Moody, cloudy and shockingly chic, we saw this shade at 3.1 Phillip Lim and it’s made for when you want a more subtle look.
Pro Tip: The nails should be super clean and simply shaped and buffed for this shade. Make sure there’s no residue in the nail bed.
Good news for anyone tired of searching for their perfect nude shade! The muted tones of peach, coral and caramel are the new neutrals gaining favour on the runways. Step in Machu Peach-U from our OPI Peru collection, a pale peach we can’t get enough of.
Pro Tip: We recommend applying at least three coats of this subtle color for true coverage. Just don’t forget to add a coat of OPI Top Coat for extra shine.
From metallics to glitter, high-shine shades provide a look-at-me-now option for your nails that works just as well post-party season. We love Glitzerland for full on shine or Worth A Pretty Penne for a new type of January carb (it pairs perfectly with real pasta too).
Pro Tip: Ensure you apply the polish very smoothly to ensure it stays looking chic.
We know you’re obsessed with Big Apple Red, but make 2019 the year to try something new, like the vibrant A Red-vival City from our OPI Lisbon collection.
Pro Tip: Keep your hands in top shape by keeping them moisturized with products from our OPI ProSpa collection. Winter weather can leave hands cool and dry so it’s worth investing in a good hand cream and cuticle oil.
Maybe you’ve never had A Green Come True but now's the time to switch it up to Can’t Be Camouflaged for an alternative to your classic metallic. Too shiny for you? Try our favorite Stay Off the Lawn!! for a deep emerald alternative to brown or black.
Pro Tip: Green is surprisingly versatile for nail art, team with metallic shades to ensure you don’t look too festive. Though it was chic when paired with black at the Blondes show.
