Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. At shows like Halston, Elie Tahari, and Doo.Ri, nude nail polishes reigned. This putty shade from the Halston show is Dashing Diva Polish in West Village ($8), but the secret to get this trend right is finding a relatively matte polish that's a little darker and cooler-toned than your skin. Happy hunting! Photo courtesy of Ann Lawlor Glimmer of Hope Glitter, out of favor for the last couple of seasons with the advent of matte polishes, popped up in places like the Diego Binetti show. Unlike traditional glitter polishes, though, this year's crop will be all about chunky glitter, flakies, 3D glitz, and urban, adult shade combinations. Think black and gunmetal gray glitter, or hunter green and red gold glitter. Source: CND All For Naught Image Source: Getty At shows like Halston, Elie Tahari, and Doo.Ri, nude nail polishes reigned.

Instead, the colors at shows like Malandrino and ThreeASFOUR were blue- and gray-purples that are much cooler-tinged and edgier for a grown-up, sophisticated vibe. Several good examples are, from left: Goddess CR Nail Polish ($3.50), Chanel Le Vernis in Paradoxical ($23), and Sally Hanson Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Purple Pulse ($8).

It's an old-fashioned but extremely elegant shape that can basically be described as a tapered oval. In the most extreme cases, the nails are filed into pointy "talons," but a soft almond shape is extremely pretty and wearable. Plus, it has the benefit of making small fingers look longer.

Adding texture to your manicure is tons of fun, and there are endless ways to do it, whether with rhinestones, lace, appliques, or playing with the polish itself to create rough or craquelure effects.
