For the winter of 2009 – 2010, nail polish experts are calling out the trends of the season. While not all nail experts agree on the top nail polish textures (to shimmer or not to shimmer), they do have one thing in common. Deep reds and berry shades are some of the hottest nail polish colors for Winter 2009 – 2010.
Winter 2009 – 2010 calls for bold, rich colors and special touches to dress nails up for special occasions. You can follow the hot trends for winter nails or make up your own creative manicures and pedicures. Try out the hot nail polish colors of winter 2010 and experiment with other lacquer colors that you enjoy. Do your own manicures at home to save some money or visit a salon for hot and trendy winter 2010 nail polish colors.
“One of the hottest nail trends for 2010 is ‘80’s inspired colors and patterns,” says Andrea Lavinthal, Senior Beauty Editor of RealBeauty.com. “The easiest way to achieve the look is with adhesives like the ones by Minx (find a salon that has them at www.minxnails.com). There are nearly 200 different graphics to choose from. Another option is to choose a vibrant nail polish with obvious flecks of glitter or sparkle. Think in-your-face colors like hot pink and bright purple.”
ORLY’s Femme Fatale Holiday 2009 Collection of nail polish hues include Siren in Bright Red Crème, Temptress in Deep Red Shimmer, and Goddess in Red Brown Crème.

These hot nail polish shades retail for $7.50 each at www.orlybeauty.com, Sally Beauty, Ulta, and other beauty stores worldwide.
Shari Gottesman, the creator of Perfect Formula and Vice President of Cosmetics Coatings Corporation, the nation’s second largest nail product manufacturer, recommends the following hot nail polish color trends for Winter 2009 – 2010.
• “If you don’t have time for a salon appointment, go for a naked nail look for the season, which is chic looking as color right now, and totally on trend,” says Gottesman. “As long as your cuticles are in good health and you keep nails buffed and shiny….”
• “For the winter / holiday season, nothing beats the look of a deep, dark red,” Gottesman adds. “This year, we’ve created some very dark blackberry shades, which I think add some nice and much needed drama to balance out a festive, cutesy party look.”
• “And this season, the trend is away from shimmer, even for holiday,” Gottesman shares. “Dark and matte – that’s where nails are for now!”
