As soon as fall rolls around - leaves are changing, weather is changing, our wardrobes are definitely changing! Most of us start to either 'down-play' or 'play-up' ourselves. We either stay vibrant and colorful or we go bland and simple - keeping ourselves stylish nonetheless. The cool temperatures effect everyone differently. It can be exciting to throw on multiple layers and brave the outdoors! Likewise, some of us prefer to stay in, cozied up to (your choice of) a furry companion. Whether you are in or out, primping for the weekend or administering a DIY pedi, bold and sexy nail colors are calling. And we've picked out our favorite classics "avant-garde" inspired colors for this season.

Illamasqua’s new makeup line, Toxic Nature, is based on the idea of nature fighting back against the genetically modified society that invades it. The Toxic Nature collection consists of acid-infused brights as well as muted tones. Here’s what Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director, had to say about the creation of Toxic Nature:
“Having an artist background highly influenced this collection. The medium of paint when it is in various states [mixed on a palette, on a canvas, the colours mutating when you wash your brushes] inspired the product colours of Toxic Nature. Blends, washes, dabs, drips, daubs and splashes of colour are evident in the imagery of the collection.”
