Nails lacquered with shades of pine, mint and olive were spotted on the Fall 2009 runways of designers like Vena Cava, Chanel, and Doo.Ri, making green one of the hottest -- and most unusual -- beauty trends of the season.
Jessica, as in the Jessica, from Jessica nail care likes dark forest green for fall because, "It's a great shade for any skin tone and will accent fashion's strong trends of burnt orange, soft browns and grays."
Can't imagine straying from your usual red or pink? Then your fingers will be so last year! "If you want to be ahead of the fashion frontier, you should want to try green!," says Jessica.
And between all the beauty brands, there's a green out there for everyone. Jessica's Divine Pine (launching in late October) is a deep forest, M.A.C's Dry Martini (only available through September) is more olive-y, Sula's Fern is a vibrant kelly color and Chanel's minty polish "Jade" ... well ... it officially launches for a limited time this October -- with an advanced offering on Fashion's Night Out -- and will most likely be gone befor eyou can say "Coco," so act fast (there are probably waiting lists already).
Green not your scene? There are plenty of other stylish shades for fall, including cool gray, icy blue and deep purple.
