While our Western counterparts may be gearing up for the autumn season (bundling up in cozy layers and striding tall in knee-high boots), we tropical dwellers are lucky enough to get a few days of breezy afternoons and cool evenings. Though fall dressing is anything but practical for Filipinas, we can still get into the spirit of things.
One simple way of doing that is by painting your nails! With the -ber months finally upon us, it's time to swap summery neons and preppy brights for a moodier color palette. Think dramatic blues, gothic purples, and molten metals. Not a fan of color? You'll be pleased to know that understated and chic nudes—as seen at the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2012 show, no less—are one of the season's It nail shades.
