Midnight Madness

When it comes to nails this fall, blue is the new black.

When it comes to nails this fall, blue is the new black—inky shades of midnight blue, to be exact, highlighted with a hint of sparkle in some instances, sheer in others. “Blue is the perfect color to offset superfeminine clothing,” says celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, who created a sheer dark navy called Rehab for her eponymous line. Think you’re too old to wear such a trend? Think again. The key to pulling off a bold color is supershort nails and a heightened dose of confidence. “You don’t have to be young to wear it,” laughs Lippmann. “You just have to be brave.”
