We all get excited when the seasons’ change, more exciting are the trends and colors for the season. The dropping temperature indicates a perfect time for warming up the wardrobe and other essentials. Pastel and neon shades are no longer making trends this season. On the runway, nail polish designers have brought rusty earthy tones and its more about going back to the basics this season.

With nail art and all sorts of amazing designs getting popular we cannot forget this trend during fall seasons. Nail art is tricky and requires a lot of practice for a neat manicure, you can easily get nail strips in all designs ranging from animal prints to floral or abstract designs. The best thing about nail strips is that you can apply different designs on each finger.
