wear your wine.

Hello again! I hope y'all had a great long weekend :) I have always been a bit leery of sporting super dark nails--but not because I don't love the way they look. I am a "quick-nicker" {aka I only get about a day's worth of wear before I somehow nick my nail polish}. The gel + shellac route is great...until it's time to take it off. Oy! Suffice it to say, I'd still really love to tackle the wine-colored nail trend this fall.
Here were ten of my favorite shades in my weekend research...


first row: Le Métier de Béaute Kona + Deborah Lippmann Just Walk Away Renee
second row: Essie Up's + M.A.C Underfire Red
third row: Deborah Lippmann Lady is a Tramp + Dior Massai Red
fourth row: NARS Jungle Red + Lancôme Madame Tulipe

Now I'm dreaming of a big glass of pinot noir at 7:30am. If I could just decide on a color,
I could wear my wine--regardless of the hour ;)

  1. I pick my nail polishes mainly based on their names, and these wine polishes have some amazing names! Must try!

  2. I love all of the titles you come up with for your posts and collages! For me, I ordered a fairly dark green color from the essie fall 2012 collection when Ulta was doing 20% off. I'm not much of a non-traditionalist with nail colors. I'll do dark purples, pinks, reds, etc, but I haven't been able to really get on board with blues, greens, etc. I want to be able to wear the green without feeling like I'm joining the army or heading back to middle school (that's who I always think of when I see non-traditional nail colors).

  3. Too funny ... I just put this color on my nails Friday. I was originally thinking a brighter shade but when I laid eyes on a beautiful shade of wine I couldn't resist!

  5. I definitely love those colors! I have several old polishes that are darker red, almost black. They're so amazing though. I think I need to try a dark green or blue this year.

  8. I love this shade- it's a more fancy version of your typical red, which is great for fall and winter!

  9. If you have 1 million unapproved comments from me, I'm sorry! The comment form keeps eating my comments. Anyway, I love the essie and nars shades. This color is great for fall, and even though I'm a quick nicker too (usually too lazy to put polish on my fingers) I'm dying to try this color!

  10. Oooh I'm the exact same way... so I've been opting for a french manicure in shellac... it last the longest - for me. I love these colors though and think they'd be so pretty for fall. Essie, OPI & NARS are my favorites :)

  11. Love this trend! I've been painting my nails dark for years so I'm glad I don't look so emo anymore. Just painted them with Lincoln Park After Dark last night. :)

  12. I think this is definitely the most accessible way of wearing this trend. I too am a "quick-nicker"... I guess that is the sign of a busy and active life? Cheers with my imaginary glass of pinot at 1:40pm (so not much better)!

  24. Burgundy was my school color in high school and by the end of those four years, I was so sick of it that I swore it off forever. However, seeing it everywhere this fall has really made me rethink my (rash) decision. I already bought the Deborah Lippmann shade a few weeks ago, and I can't wait to use it!
