Best of Beauty: Best Nail Polishes of 2009

Everyone loves a good coat of paint – skip the car, and focus on your nails! Here are the best trends of 2009:

Minx Nails

Minx Nails

Minx is “fashion for your nails.” This professional only product made a statement in 2009 by bringing patterns and color together on an adhesive that is applied to nails by Minx certified technicians – making free-style art (and its mistake prone quality) a thing of the past. These nails were done by my favorite Minx-ist: Tracylee of Damone Roberts salon in New York.

Zoya Dare Collection

Zoya Dare Collection

Zoya Truth or Dare – this dramatic collection has two distinct sides.

The Truth collection boasts of shimmering browns, maples, purples and rose. While Dare spans the color spectrum and includes highly pigmented shades of purple, pink, lavender and green.

Seen allover the runways and on celebrities – grey nails – from cement to charcoal – made a smoky statement– standout shades included Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Stormy and Shades by Barielle U-Concrete-Me.

Matte nail colors made an appearance in most nail lines in 2009. From matte top coats (which take the shine out of any nail color) to full matte color collections most nail companies got in on the matte action. Standout collections included Zoya Matte Velvet, OPI’s Matte Collection, and Orly Matte Couture.
