Trend Alert: Bronze Nail Polish

Ok, I realize that there are many, many things wrong with Britney Spears' manicure—not to mention with her family's latest news—but if you can look past the stubby length, the lack of filing, and the chipping, the color is actually really cool.

Bronze nails happen to be yet another version of the hot metallic nail trend that has hit Hollywood this season. Since I know it's hard to keep staring at this picture, especially since the lit cigarette is such a focal point, I've featured two pretty and pale bronze colors on the following page. So


Shu Uemura Nail Enamel Supplement Mineral in Shade 434 ($16) is a light and sheer coppery-bronze shade that is formulated to dry quickly, evenly and leave your fingers looking dainty and pearlescent. The lacquers in this range are also formaldehyde-free and toluene-free, so they actually don't smell quite as strong as other polishes.

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Long-Lasting Nail Lacquer in Golden Touch ($18 top row, second from the left) is also a light bronze shade that can be worn alone or as a top coat over any of your other favorite matte nail polishes for added shimmer and lots of shine. This polish dries quickly and claims to be chip-resistant — although I have yet to find anything that lasts longer than a week. You be the judge!

I didn't know bronze was a trend. I've been wearing it for years. P.S. Tobacco-stained fingers = yuck.

It looks like Britney Spears needs to wash her hands. With lots of soap... Get down into the nails and scrub hard. >_<

I'd probably try the bronze colors, but Britney's nails just look like they're horribly miscolored.

Sally Hansen has a really pretty dark bronze color. I have it on my tootsies right now.

Bronze can be a really hard color for some skin complexions. I definitely can't wear it.

I'm always wearing metallic bronze or sand polish. Bronze for when I'm more tan; sand for when I'm paler. I prefer it to pinks and reds.

I really like this color but it's too close to my skin color and therefore looks weird. I think it would look great with a tan.

In addition, seeing it on Brit like that just makes me want to run in the other direction. No bronze for me!

Not trying to be mean, but you've said almost every color is a "trend alert" in nails. You've covered so many in the past few months that changing my nails that often to try and match your trends would make my head spin. gold, bronze, navy, forest green, gold, reds, etc, etc, etc.

Love the colour, hate the pic. Nowadays, I'm wearing more natural colours but I might try it someday.

Bronze is pretty, it looks much better than gold polish does with my fair skintone.

Is this a joke? Her nails look rotten and I think bronze nails are only flattering on people with a nice deep tan.

I agree with Pink, Brit Brit is not the best person to model this color, which happens to be quite nice. Not a color I would try, it might look a little too aged and mature. Brit's nails are NASTY!!! In every way!! Ewwww..........
