Obsessed With Oxblood Nails
By Patrice Grell Yursik December 27, 2012
DEEP. DARK. MYSTERIOUS. SEXY. Oxblood is undeniably the It color for fall, and itâ€™s all over the latest clothing and holiday makeup collections. Depending on your skin color it can be a tough color to rock. Nails offer a super easy and accessible way to rock fallâ€™s hottest color, and just about every polish brand has a sexy wine, deep burgundy, or on trend oxblood in their offerings. Recently I visited the super chic Polish Bar of Brooklyn and got some sick nail art via their in house artist Mimi. She used a dark oxblood (I believe it was Essieâ€™s classic Lincoln Park After Dark), and accented it with gold to amp up the look. Iâ€™m now obsessed with the combination and Iâ€™m on the hunt for hot oxblood nail polishes to add to my collection. If youâ€™re seeking a drugstore option, I recommend you check out Cover Girlâ€™s new Outlast Stay Brilliant nail polishes. Fifteen hot on-trend colors in a high quality lacquer that lasts. Here Iâ€™ve done something of a reverse French look with Wine Stain and Golden Opportunity. Love!
