The 5 Best Nail Colors to Wear This Fall
We’re sad to see summer end, but we’re cheered by the prospect of many autumnal treats ahead—like leaf peeping, pumpkin-flavored delicacies, new fall clothes and nail polishes to match them. Here, the five trendiest shades to wear this season.
A Shade-Shifting Glitter
FYI: Sparkle is back in a big way. Top your tips with a layer of iridescent glitter to give them shimmery dimension. Or wear three coats on their own for a shiny, foiled finish.
A Bold Marigold
Before you write off this sunny shade as too bright for fall, note that it pulls more marigold than yellow on your nails and is surprisingly flattering on a variety of skin tones. Plus, you could argue that it is the quintessential fall shade—evocative of gourds and school buses and the changing leaves all around.
A Burnt Orange
Speaking of foliage, a swipe of terra-cotta polish will carry you through the seasons (plus it’s a little less expected than a candy apple red). The rich hue looks especially flattering against darker skin tones.

A Deep Blue
A bit brighter than navy but more subdued that cobalt, this creamy blue polish makes a statement without being too loud. Consider swapping it in as your fall neutral (while giving the usual pale pinks a break).
Deborah Lippmann ($20)
A Crisp White
Just as white boots are this fall’s footwear trend, white polish is trending for your fingertips. The reason? It’s a foolproof shade that goes with everything from your summer dresses to your finest fall knits.
