A wise person once said, “You can’t buy happiness, but you can get a mani and a pedi and that’s kind of the same thing.” I can definitely relate. Summer is almost over and fall and winter are fast approaching, so it’s time to shake things up a bit with nail polish – a girl’s best friend. Here are two must-have polishes for fall and winter. Enjoy!

“You Don’t Know Jacques” by OPI

For me, You Don’t Know Jacques was love at first sight. It’s elegant, versatile and perfect for fall or winter. This polish is a soft taupe shade that will match most of the items in your fall/winter wardrobe because of the crisp pale brown color. It also has a subtle gray undertone depending on the lighting. I always err on the side of 3 coats with this polish, but 2 coats work well depending on your preferences. This shade is an instant classic and perfect for whatever you have on the agenda for the day – work, lunch with friends, night on the town, or Sunday morning church services.

“Lincoln Park After Dark” by OPI

This shade is exquisitely dramatic without giving off a gothic feel. As the name suggests, Lincoln Park After Dark is a darker tone; almost black, but not quite. It’s a chic alternative to a traditional bold black polish because it contains a hint of purple which adds a bit of mystery. Think eggplant meets black jellybean. This shade looks amazing for both a mani and a pedi. Two coats are sufficient, but 3 coats never hurt. You’re sure to get loads of compliments every time you wear it!

Ok, are you thinking “why only two favorite fall/winter polishes”? Well, I pretty much stick to my two faves during the colder seasons with the occasional foray into French manicure land. (I know you don’t need me to extol the virtues of getting the occasional French manicure – ha!)

You Don’t Know Jacques and Lincoln Park After Dark both have an air of sophistication and class without being too conservative. I hope you agree!
