With Labor Day just behind us, we’re officially inching our way toward fall. But rather than bemoan the end of summer, we say: bring on the pumpkin spice and sweaters, sign us up for the apple picking and show us the new polishes to wear this season!
The 7 Best Nail Colors to Wear This Fall
A Deep Bordeaux
Merlot, Bordeaux and Cab Sav: We’re talking our favorite shades of red polish here, of course. A deep crimson mani is always classic this time of year and this iteration from Olive & June is the perfect blend for our palette.
A Warm Neutral
Save the pale pinks and creams for another time. This fall, it’s all about a milky toffee, which has the same elongating effects as the aforementioned neutrals, but also has the added benefit of warming up your skin as your summer tan gradually fades.
Buy it ($9)
A Rosy Terra-cotta
And if your go-to polish is pink, we recommend a rich rose this season. It’s a cooler, retro take on the perennially pretty shade.
A Cool Gray
For our ladies who rocked a crisp white mani all summer: Might we interest you in a cool dove gray that’s just as sharp and easy to wear?
A Hunter Green
Aka the shade that is surprisingly flattering on all skin tones. A richly pigmented green pops against fair skin and compliments darker complexions. Some might say it’s an evergreen shade.
Buy it ($11)
A Holographic Pink
This holographic pick is flecked with sparkly specks of pink, orange, purple and gold. Depending on where the light hits, you get a slightly different effect.

An Indigo Blue
A touch lighter than navy, but just as bold, an indigo blue is deeply satisfying on your tips—or toes. Can’t you just see it paired with your favorite ivory sweater? Or your camel trench?
