As seasons go, I’ve always been a fan of fall. There’s just something magical about the changing leaves, crisp air and snuggling into comfy clothes. One of my favorite things about fall is breaking away from the bright nail colors of summer and slipping into sophisticated autumn shades.
A classic nude is hard to beat. Fall is the ideal time for warm, mauve toned nudes. Essie’s “Don’t Sweater It” is a dark, rich nude. It’s a great choice for those days when you just can’t decide on a color.
A deep plum polish is both classy and daring. I am absolutely in love with “Purple Revolution” from Dior Vernis. I am complimented on my nails every time I wear it!
This collection of fabulous shades wouldn’t be complete without a textured polish. OPI’s “Wharf, Wharf, Wharf” is a brilliant navy blue featuring a funky sandy texture. It just screams for a midnight rendezvous on the dance floor.
Halloween is easily my favorite holiday, and nothing is more spooky and mysterious than blood red nails. “Jezebel” from Marc Beauty Enamored High-Shine Nail Lacquer collection seems both sexy and dangerous. Elvira would be proud.
Brown is a color I have always associated with autumn. It’s the color of dead leaves, freshly turned soil and pinecones. “Chocolate Junkie” from the Sephora Collection reminds me of a steaming mug of delicious hot chocolate. All that’s missing is marshmallows!
Speaking of colors associated with fall. It’s hard to think of fall without envisioning pumpkins. If you’re looking to rock some dazzling burnt orange nails, check out Butter London’s “Brown Sugar”. Gorgeous copper shimmer with gold glitter; if only every pumpkin was this fabulous!
If you’re one for staying on top of the trends, keep an eye out this autumn for these captivating nail colors. Let me know what your favorite fall shades are in the comments section!
