Celeb Manicurist Reveals Hottest Fall Trends
Ever wonder how beauty companies manage to stay one step ahead of the latest trends? The process begins well before the start of the season and requires close attention to detail. Tom Bachik, a celebrity manicurist and consulting nail expert at L’Oréal Paris, predicted that full-coverage nudes, sheer shimmery lace, and deep tones like burgundy and eggplant would be hot for fall.  How'd he do it? By paying attention while spending his days working on high fashion and celebrity photo shoots. “Through a filtering process involving the hottest makeup artists and fashion stylists in the industry — including the celebrities and what they are choosing on a regular basis by what we present to them — the right eye can pick up on trends taking place,” Bachik says. After Bachik spots the looks, he puts them to use on “covers, editorials, music videos, advertising and red carpets” months before the public sees them. “When my (celebrity) clients start wearing these looks, other nail techs start putting those looks on their clients" and the trend is born.

Trend 1: Mixing Texture and Dimension

“I think mixing texture and dimension is important," Bachik says. "If going with a chunky metallic on toes, go with a rich, deep, ‘creamy’ color (with no shimmer) on fingers, and vice versa. If wearing a full-coverage nude on toes, then pair with a rich, deep, shimmery shade with dimension to the fingers.” TRY L’ORÉAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE NAIL IN… Sparklicious (toes) paired with Haute Couture Red (fingers) Walk On The Beach (toes) paired with VIP Status (fingers)

TREND 2: Antique Metallics & Full-Coverage Nudes on Toes

"This trend is a carry-over from summer," Bachick says. "Metallics like full-coverage nudes are now staple shades and are everywhere and pretty much go with everything. The modern take on metallics has been to give them more of a dirty or olivey undertone so they are not quite as bright and more wearable."

TREND 3: Classic Looks in Deep Rich Tones like Burgundy & Eggplant

"This is more of a red carpet trend," Bachik explains. "Dark tones no longer seem to have a season, but when it comes to fall red carpet, it’s an easy choice to go with. When creating a look of classic elegance, deep rich tones always say sophisticated glamour. I do feel this fall, the deep rich shades will stay brighter."

TREND 4: Sheer Shimmery Lace

“Sheer shimmery lace is a big fall trend. A great look I've started to do as summer wraps up is to use a single coat of a shimmery metallic on nails, so the color stays sheer but sparkly. It’s a great modern take on nudes that stays sophisticated and chic.” TRY L’ORÉAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE NAIL IN… The Temptress’ Touch (available at select drugstores September 2012)
