With fall right around the corner (as signified by the hefty September issues of the fashion and lifestyle magazines stacked up on my desk), now is the time to get a jump start on your fall look. What better way to do that then by making your nails pop for the fall season than with color blocking?. According to the experts at sally hansen, color blocking nails is a perfect way to add instant depth and trend to your style. Colors can be monochromatic, metallic, bright, whatever style fits your look.

Also explained below is how to get the looks and the Sally Hansen products used to create them.
Sally Hansen was the proud exclusive nail partner for Phillip Lim and create nail looks for his Fall 2016 fashion show during New York Fashion Week.
“Phillip Lim’s new collection was inspired by Japanese craftsmanship, elegant lacquered wood, samurai sword embellishment, and even lipstick packaging.

The oval shape was inspired by the hardware on the bags and belts.” – Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Continue reading
