I’ve already given you the rundown on this year’s fall fashion trends, so it’s time that I touch on beauty as well. What I love about changing seasons is that they always introduce a new color palette. For fall, we all tend to wear moodier, darker shades, especially when it comes to our nails. Gone are the bright hues of pinks and yellows, and in are the deep reds and greys. Ahead, you’ll get to see some of my favorite nail color trends for this fall, along with links to shop the exact shades!
While darker hues are standard in the fall, we don’t all like going too dark. For those who’d rather not wear a black manicure, that’s where navy nail polish comes in. It’s universal, and still adds a slight pop of color to your nail beds. Picture your own navy manicure with a set of cute rings to stand out.
Deep purple nail colors always make a comeback during the fall, and this year is no different. At this point, we can consider this shade range to be a classic, and everyone should have a bottle or two as part of their collection. It’s not too bright or too bold—it’s just right.
You guys know that a neutral color palette will always be my favorite, so I can’t leave a nude polish out of this roundup. The good thing about colors in the beige and brown range is that they work every season. If you prefer a look that’s similar to the natural color of your nails, pick up a sandy beige or your own best shade of nude.
Just like deep purples, deep reds are back in the game. Rather than going for a vibrant, fire-engine red polish, go for a more wine-colored option. It’s more in tune with this time of year but still works as a classic form of red. Rouge for the win.
You can expect to see more muted versions of your favorite colors on the nail aisle now. For those of you who love lilac or lavender, a light dustier purple is the best alternative right now. It’s not too pastel, but also not too grey if that isn’t your thing.
However, if you are a fan of the color grey, then you’re in luck. From light grey to pure charcoal, you can find all of these nail color options the next time you go shopping for more. Grey is such a neutral staple that works on every skin tone and certainly doesn’t have to be boring.
