InStyle's beauty director Amy Synnott-D'Annibale, in the September 2012 issue, advised readers to make a statement this fall with the new reverse French mani. Don't go for the usual white tips — instead try another color like jet black, metallic silver, or neon pink.

Featured shades are Orly's Liquid Vinyl and Shine, Deborah Lippman's I'm Not Innocent and Fade to Black, and CND's Silver Chrome.

Other recommended statement manicures include the Metallic French, Polka Dots and Moon Mani.
