I know this season is all about the khaki nail color, but I’m a fan of dark colors, especially on short nails. But really, is the dark nail trend ever really going to go away? Every season a few pastels or candy colors are heralded as THE color to wear, but I always see girls wearing dark colors.

After years of Linkin Park After Dark, I decided it was time to try something new. I was afraid this one would be really purple, but it’s a dark-reddish-plum color with a hint of shimmer. Perfect for fall!
