When Do You Shine?

Fall season is finally here, and the excitement could not be more real. I’ve been seeing so many trends everywhere on social media, but one that is still my favorite and will be forever are neutral shades.

In case you missed it, OPI launched 30 of their most iconic shades in their new Infinite Shine three-step system this month (insert heart emoji here). Infinite Shine is a great alternative to GelColor because you can get longer-lasting, higher-shine without any light. It also comes off with regular lacquer remover, which is really convenient so you don’t have to take a trip to the salon to get your polish removed. It’s a win win.

Passion, Funny Bunny, Bubble Bath, Taupe-Less Beach, Tickle My France-y and Dulce de Leche – just to name a few I’m currently obsessed with. Bubble Bath takes me back to my wedding day. It was the color I painted my nails for the big day, and it was the perfect nude shade. Speaking of weddings, Passion color reminds me of my bridal shower. It matched the colors to my bridal shower décor and my bridesmaids’ floral dresses. Sigh… This color brings back so many wonderful memories. 

As for the shades I'm currently obsessed with, Dulce de Leche is my new go-to color. It’s a great shade for every day because it goes with every outfit and transitions from day to night seamlessly. I’m also obsessed with Taupe-Less Beach for obvious reasons. I mean, the name for starters, plus the color is the perfect mix between a grey/lavender. It matches the colors on my maxi dress seen here so perfectly.

Nails have always been the easiest way to elevate a whole look. Sure, you can opt for a fun pop of color, but lately, I’ve been loving neutral shades. The new Infinite Shine colors are perfect to capture a minimal but chic look. These colors can truly be worn year ‘round even during Fall season. What are some of your go-to colors?
