Makeup Trend Review 2012,13: 50 Shades Of Gray Nail Polish Swatches- Metallics, Gunmetal Black
Forget the translucent nude polish, ombre style or wild designs of summer… This fall, nail art is simple, bold and mysteriously dark. Models on the fall runways flaunted the smoky nail trend while September’s blockbuster magazines have the sultry look splashed across their beauty pages.
