The top fall 2012 nail polish colors, week 1: oxblood

Oxblood-Nail-Polish-Image.jpgEvery season, a selection of nail polish colors makes its way into the best, most popular, most used shades. And we’re counting them down for you this fall! Up this week: oxblood. Oxblood has been seen all over the runways, all over street style blogs and all over nails since the temperatures started dropping. It’s the color of the season–a new, richer, deeper take on red than your classic burgundies and maroons. It’s chic, it’s sexy, it’s utterly unforgettable. Take a look at our favorite takes on the trend.
