burgundy nails, ox blood trend, nail trends 2013, minimal style fashion

I wouldn’t be much of a fashion blogger if I didn’t at least once this season rant about ox blood, wine red, burgundy or whatever the trendy word used to describe the color (and its closest relatives, many of them). While I don’t really classify myself as a full-on fashion blogger, this blog still is a place for me to express my style, thoughts and trend adaptations, so I kind of feel compelled to write about the emerging trend mentioned – in my own manner, of course. And burgundy nails is my topic of choice!

Now, I may not appear to be, but I’m a huge sucker for a good manicure. For me, you can be the most gorgeous girl on the planet, if your nails are bitten, with ripped cuticle and not taken proper care of, that’s a total dealbreaker. No, it is not about chipped nail polish or having no nail polish at all, it’s about being neat and having healthy nails.

Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of red in clothing, but I love it in small doses in the nail/make-up department. I find its darker version to be the perfect substitute for fall/winter. You’ve definitely seen me rocking burgundy shade as an eyeshadow and a lip/eye liner. Now get acquainted with my almost fave nail polish for every time F/W comes around. Almost? Yes, because as we already know – there is only one black. But since this shade is pretty damn close to the queen, with just a bit of wine red shining through, we can call it a close second. They say anything in excess is bad for you. I find it can be applied to fashion fads as well as everything else in our lives. So I chose to take this fall’s it shade and add it to my day to day style, but in small doses. It was also the perfect excuse to put my long forgotten nail polish to good use.

I’m obviously swooning over burgundy nails these days. What’s your all time favorite nail polish color? And what shade are you cheating your favorite with this season? Share the secrets below!

Thank you , thank you, thank you! I don’t wear polish on my nails exactly because of that. I hate seeing peeling polish! Love your manicure! I can certainly appreciate a beautiful job.

I love it! This is one of my favorite colors, ever! And I love that it’s having a spotlight this season! Although, I’ll admit i’ve been wearing a greyish purple color alot recently so i’ve sort of been cheating on my burgundy!

lol oxblood has been a fav of mines for a while.

your photos are always so amazing! I do love burgundy nail polish, it’s especially looks good on you, but i don’t think it will do the trick for my skin tone. my current favorite nail polish is classic french manicure

Vania Aprilia 25/11/2012 - 9:26 AM

potpisujem!!! i necu rec da mi se nije dosta puta dogodilo da sam izasla s “na nekim mjestima unistenom” manikurom, ali trudim se ;)
ja sam ndavno otkrila jednu super nijansu ljubicaste, onako malo kao mat – miss helen 43 iris. jeftini a dosta dosta dobri lakovi. crveni njihov mi je bolji od OPI.

Healthy nails are definitely a must! I’ve been wearing a sort of similar shade recently too… maybe it’s a bit more purple than reddish, but still dark and beautiful… called Lincoln Park at Midnight by OPI. I love it!!

We have a saying in Poland that hands are the business card of a woman :) So they have to look good.
Since I can remember my favourite nail vanish colours have been red or reddish but lately I love black & grey too.


Vienna Wedekind 26/11/2012 - 9:25 PM


my favourite colour this season is „don’t sweater it“ by ESSIE! nice grey-tone!


hiPop 27/11/2012 - 10:30 AM


trenutno u ljubavi sa mat belom…volim kako nokti deluju nelogicno i neprirodno s njom…

Mada je ova boja sljive savrsen kompromis izmedju crvene i crne!

love love love!!! so pretty! xO!

The Style Recorder 27/11/2012 - 11:19 PM


I agree with you – good nails are a plus. I also love the new burgundy trend. I just found your blog and I love it! (Just followed :)) It’s so original and I love your style. Definitely a new favorite!


melissa 28/11/2012 - 5:45 AM


Love black nails but lately Im into this brown grey from American apparel and in the middle some black nail art ;) I like it to keep it simple no fuss.

C 28/11/2012 - 2:49 PM


I think my absolute go to nail polish would have to be either OPI’s DS Classic or Chi Chi’s fuchsia “Look at Me” shade. Although I have to say i’ve really been into American Apparel’s neon shades this season! It’s always summer where I live, so I really find that going all out with colours that rape your retina keeps life weirdly fresh.

Arden 28/11/2012 - 5:35 PM


The nail color is so beautiful. xx

Sofie 29/11/2012 - 4:52 PM


Yeah love this shade too! But my favorite must be white, black and grey. And I almost always have them matte by a top coat. Really like your way of writing and photography!! xx Sofie


Dolly 29/11/2012 - 9:23 PM


odlična je ova boja, obožavam Avonove lakove, i imam ovaj :)
slažem se s tobom u vezi ovog ako nokti nisu njegovani i ako su izgriženi, pogotovo kod cura. to je stvarno odvratno :/

Anastasija 30/11/2012 - 1:07 PM


wow, savrsen je!!
