Every year there comes a time when the bright coral we’ve been rocking on our tips suddenly feels a tad aggressive. (Ditto for the cobalt blue.) It’s as though our nails know we need a change. Luckily, a seasonal swap in polish is a lot easier to accomplish than, say, updating your entire wardrobe. Here, our eight fall favorites.
The 8 Trendiest Nail Polish Colors to Wear This Fall
Bring on the moody hues
Pale pink goes with Easter eggs and sundresses. Dusty rose goes with warm lattes and all of your knits. The difference is the tiny touch of gray.
Jin Soon ($18)
You know what would go well with your new fall bag? Freshly polished coppery tips.
Smith & Cult ($18)
Forest green is the rare shade that looks good against your still-bronzed summer skin now—and your porcelain (ahem) pallor later.
Remember that cobalt blue that felt a touch too bright? Try a muted navy instead.
Deborah Lippmann ($20)
Think of sage-gray polish as your palette cleanser between the aforementioned forest greens and blues.
Bright red polish works almost all year round, but a burnt reddish-brown is straight up autumnal.
Sonia Kashuk ($5)
The subtle shimmer in this deep-plum pick keeps it from looking drab. Wear it with short, squared-off tips to accessorize your smartest blazers and skirts.
And for all the glitter fiends out there, a sparkly gunmetal will really shine without looking the slightest bit gaudy or childish.
