What will be this fall’s colors?

Photo 2 Fall Trend Step Manicure By Naja RicketteThis manicure is easy for anyone to do at home, and great for those having trouble deciding on one color! This particular design is  a “step manicure.”  To create this fun manicure, start out by selecting a base color and then a combination of three to four contrasting but complementary colors for the “steps.”

What sort of details will we be seeing?
Metallics will still make a flash appearance especially in silver: think lines, spikes and studs.Photo 1 Fall Trend By Naja Rickette 0This design uses oxblood with a silver lining. You can choose to go subtle with thin silver stripes outlined in black, or you can go for a larger, bolder metallic statement.

What sort of designs will be most requested?
Nail art orders will be subtle lines, interesting color combination and a switch to more feminine details.

What will be the hot nail shape?
Nail shapes will go from pointed edges to a more subtle tapered square.


This season of LA Hair will air on WE TV every Thursday at 9:00 pm EST until the final episode of the season on August 22, 2013.
