MAC’s Fall nail colors haven’t even arrived yet (they’ll be in MAC boutiques starting August 26th) and we’re already swooning over the vibrant palette. Shunning traditional, muted autumn colors like matte maroons and browns, the collection is instead inspired by the Forbidden City of Imperial China. That means loads of blood orange, royal blue, taupe, emerald and purples in shiny, opaque finishes. Although the inspiration behind the line is a bit unorthodox, the colors bring to mind fall leaves and ripe fruit—and would certainly go well with the colors sent down the fall runways. Now, the question remains, which of the six shades do we want?
