I'm letting go of my OPI Honeymoon Suite and other Essie politely pink and nude favorites. It's fall and I wanted to go dark again on my nails. I've done the Chanel Noir Ceramic and other raves of last year, but right now I'm swooning over dimensional jewel tones. On my list to try are a dark vampy, but jewelesque emerald green, a to-die-for ruby, a royal amethyst, or a handsome burgundy and some metallics like a high silver or a holiday yellow, party gold, like MAC's Gold Veneer lacquer.
To start off my quest, I found Acoustic Azure by Maybelline NY Salon Expert Nail Color, a limited edition shade. It came out before Halloween and completed a lineup of vampy, not quite black shades (no images available). Yes, Maybelline had to launch a collection to compete with the other drugstore brands and their higher end counterparts. I love this blue, because it's vibrant in light, but very subdued and black in areas with less light-- a deep blue, but not over the top electric '80's. I'm managing to pull if off in a corporate setting, so I'm very happy. To wear this look, I got my nails super short and chic. I can't wait for my PDA that I'm gifting myself-- cute nails need a cute pda to text on and to click- click- click with a stylus, LOL. Don't mind me, I just like to find joy in the small things! hahaha!

Sorry, I'm not good at this picture thing =/
What are your must have nail options for fall? Do you know of any fab jeweltone nail colors that I should know about?
