A crazy nail polish frenzy is still going on. As for Fall 2009, classical reds, avant-garde blacks, deep violets and navies will still be en vogue. However, the trendiest nail colour for this fall is…green!

Jade, pine, mint and olive are the dominating laquer shades. This unusual trend was seen at Vena Cava, Valentino, Paul Smith, Doo.Ri and Chanel. Good news for nail polish lovers – Chanel is set to release a limited-edition of a patent jade nail polish (number 407) in October.
Peter Philips, Chanel‘s creative director of makeup said: “Karl [Lagerfeld] wanted a green tint which would resonate with the jade-colored notes of the collection. A palette of ten different shades of green was shown to the designer, who picked the one that most resembled a tweed suit from the collection.”
Regardless of the type – pastel, neon and jewel, green nail polish is still a pretty difficult trend to wear. It requires short, well-groomed nails which make even the craziest shades look subtle. Looks like celebrities have not really gotten a jump on fall’s trendiest colour – it’s only AnnaLynne McCord and Rihanna who dare to wear green nails.
