Over the years there’s been a fair amount of beauty brand team-ups taking place, and I for one couldn’t be more excited about the Arm Candy Collection, a ten-shade limited edition nail lacquer line from butter LONDON and Allure, specifically created to complement the Fall 2015 runway and street-style trends.
Certainly, both brands are powerhouses on their own, but with their combined expertise of high standards and style it’s a collection that’s sure to fly off the shelves long before the air starts to cool and the first leaves start to change color.
Clearly, it’s a partnership made in beauty heaven:
butter LONDON’S chic and cheeky prestige n
With the advent of a new season comes the time to take a fresh look at your nail lacquer collection, and toss away the well-worn spring and summer shades.
That doesn’t mean fall colors are limited to a narrow circle of browns, beiges and navy blues, as has been the case in the past. There are so many new kids on the block but that doesn’t mean fall is the season for boring colors. Here are three ways to rock fall nails.
FABY Italian Nail Couture ($18 each)
A brand new professional Italian nail care brand makes its splash in the US with its “five-free” collection. The brand includes the Classics Collection (the permanent line of lacquers) and has a Bergdorf Goodman-sized collection of 315 skus with over 175 colors, and 45 more coming. In other words, there’s a color for every dress in your wardrobe and then some. The lacquer is thick without being goopy, and the brush control is excellent. The line is carried in high-end salons, boutiques, and online. The swatch above is Red Carpet.
A UV nail lacquer without the light and curing? It’s possible with COVERGIRL’s latest XL nail gel, a jumbo-sized bottle that gives you that thick, glossy, almost-a-Louboutin-heel look without the extra fuss. It is designed to give your nail reflective shine for up to 7 days and comes in 9 shades. Shown above is the swatch in Plump Up Plum.
Sally Hansen Colorfoil Collection ($7.99 each)
Metallic iridescence doesn’t stop at the catwalk, or during summer. You can sport Sally Hansen’s new Colorfoil nail makeup collection all year round, because some shades like Minted Metal (above) are stately yet wonderfully subtle at the same time. This is your Jeff Koons of nail lacquers: it’s sporty, whimsical, and with on-trend shades. It features electrifying pigments with aluminum leaf to give you some serious theatrics.

“The red sole was born from red nail polish.I am giving back to nails what the shoe took from the nails many years ago.” – Christian Louboutin
Apparently,back in 1992,according to WWD, Louboutin actually used a bottle of nail lacquer to get the color just right for his signature red soles. Christian Louboutin Beaute is poised to turn the
