I’m far from over with my love affair with nail colors this season. As you might have noticed, I’m a huge fan of Fall (just check out my previous posts). Here’s another one dedicated to the season as I give you a list of Fall nail colors you shouldn’t miss.
30 Must-Have Fall Nail Colors
With the change of season, it’s time to bring out the best Fall nail colors to flaunt! New and classic Fall nail colors from my favorite nail polish brands are popping up here and there. I sure had fun with summer but there’s something about autumn that I’m so in love with. Perhaps the cold weather or the yummy treats or the amazing outfits I can play with. Well, who knows?
From pretty nudes to stunning reds, these Fall nail colors really show the different shades of the season. They will go well with your amazing outfits this season as well. Additionally, these colors are perfect for the upcoming bunch of holidays too!
1. OPI, We The Female
OPI’s Fall collection screams women empowerment! The deep red hue is so rich I can’t help but liken it to a very strong and independent woman. Don’t you just think about female empowerment when you see fall nail colors like this?
2. OPI, Liv In The Grey
Named after Kerry Washington’s character in “Scandal,” this dark gray color is as mysterious as the OPI brand ambassador’s TV persona. If you’re someone who wishes to bring some sort of secrecy to your own character, this is the way to go. Excited to try?
3. KL Polish Broccoli & Chocolate
This beautiful deep brown color is perfect for fall. It gives me such a 90’s vibe I can’t shake off, I love it so much I’m wearing this through all seasons.
4. Essie, Udon Know Me
Inspired by Tokyo’s color and energy, this Essie nail polish is just perfect for those dressed-down lazy days. However, lazy days need not be off-fashion days so there’s a need to amp your style. Stay chic with fall nail colors like this from Essie’s collection.
5. Chanel Nail Gloss, Rogue Radical
This sweet orange-y red hue is a beautiful accent color against the autumn brights that surround us this time of the year. It gives you just a hint of warmth and excitement on your nails.
6. China Glaze, Heroine Chic
Relive 90’s grunge with Heroine Chic. It’s one of the wonderful colors from China Glaze’s Rebel collection, and looks absolutely stunning! The boldness of the color makes it perfect on its own or as an accent to nail art.
7. China Glaze, Combat Blue-ts
This polish’s matte finish looks gorgeous! However, if you want to have shimmery and glossy Fall Nail colors, just add a top coat to this nail polish and you’re good to go. Super pretty! For just $5 you’ll instantly get a perk me up during this cold season.
8. KL Nail Polish, Brick
Another one that I’m really loving is this brick color from KL Nail Polish, Kathleen Lights really did herself well with this color. It’s beautifully opaque and is just the right amount of boldness for the gloomy color of fall.
9. Christian Louboutin, Bianca
Fall nail colors to perfectly match the color scheme of this season? Use something on the opposite side of the color wheel like this nail polish. It doesn’t just look stunning, it also has a very posh packaging. I absolutely love it! <3
10. Gucci, Sinful Blush
Gucci’s Sinful Blush reminds me of the blush colors I use during particularly cold autumn days. It’s not too shocking, yet it’s also not that soft to look pale.
11. Dior, Minimal
Not into fierce colors? This muted pale pink color is the nail lacquer for days when you just want to stay in with a hot mug of coffee and a good book to read! This is a personal favorite.
12. Christian Louboutin Nail Lacquer, Miss Mars
This couture gray color by Christian Louboutin brings in a classic edginess to your look, it reminds me of a deep asphalt grey color that would suit anyone.
13. KL Nail Polish, Caramello
Another color variation you can use for fall is this beautiful dark mustard color called Caramello from KL Nail Polish. It’s reminiscent of falling leaves and the turn of color this season. It’s also such a rich color on your nails, this color will definitely stand out.
14. Chanel, Vamp
Channel your inner vixen with this glossy dark burgundy color! Make your nail polish more dramatic by putting gold glitter on it.
Here’s a nail art design idea you can hack:
15. Deborah Lippmann, All Night Long
The red, gold glitter in this polish gives All Night Long more depth, right? It’s something intensely beautiful and it’s one may go-to Fall nail colors for nighttime wear.
16. Deborah Lippmann, After Midnight
If you’re not a fan of shimmer then this indigo polish is just the thing for you! The simplicity of the color doesn’t take away the glamor attached to it. Stunning!
17. Deborah Lippmann, She Wolf
Let your inner wolf roar with this taupe-colored polish from Deborah Lippmann. It’s a great nail polish for those looking for something in the neutral tone family.
18. Yves Saint Laurent, Fur Green
Autumn may be all about golden leaves but this dark green color from Yves Saint Laurent fits right in as part of gorgeous Fall nail colors! Its intensity is very likable.
19. Dermelect Me Peptide-Infused Nail Lacquer, Vendure
Another green take on fall is this beautiful moss green color from Dermelect, Fall has a very “nature” look to its color palette and I didn’t know I needed a green color until I saw this beauty.
20. RGB Nail Polish, Dusk
This duo chrome color in gray and purple reminds me of the dusk at fall, aptly called Dusk too and I love that they duo chrome colors are both fall colors it just beautifully ties it all in.
21. Oribe, The Violet
Another color in this line is from Oribe! Like its name, it has an in your face rich violet shade. This shade should be in your Fall nail colors staple.
22. Dior Vernis Fall 2016 Limited Edition, 848 Skyline
Oh my, this color is giving me life! This beautiful deep mauve red is a very “vogue” take on fall nail colors and I’m not expecting anything less from Dior either.
23. Jin Soon, Farrago
This wonderfully gun metal gray glitter number is another one of those glamorous fall nail colors that just fits into the fall season really well.
24. Smith & Cult, Dirty Baby
This Dirty Baby glitter is not as compact as the other metallic grays already featured in this list. This is the reason why this shade makes it to this list. This will blend well as an accent or base in so many stunning nail art designs or you can simply wear it on its own. If I were you, I’d get this one ASAP.
25. Smith & Cult, Bitter Buddhist
It looks like pastels are in this fall. This gray-green polish from Smith & Cult looks amazing and almost similar to Essie’s Udon Know Me, although this one is a little bit on the grayish side.
26. Morgan Taylor, Rule The Runway
Although it’s described as “slate gray,” Rule The Runway actually has touches of lavender in it. Can you see the hue? I wouldn’t mind donning this to work this Fall. This one looks deceiving on the bottle and actually casts a different hue from person to person.
27. Tom Ford, Viper
Tom Ford’s Viper looks fierce and vibrant and ready for a girl’s night out! Its dark violet coverage is just strong and lady-like at the same time. Are you loving this now? Probably one of the most luxurious nail polish on this list valued at $52 each.
28. Burberry, Nude Pink No. 101
Although it’s named Nude Pink, this Burberry nail polish also has a hint of pale beige. I have no doubt this will be part of the go-to Fall nail colors of those who have a penchant for the shade.
29. Marc Jacobs, Surrender Dorothy
Marc Jacob’s Surrender Dorothy is a glittery bomb of cherry red created with fine glitters that will look beautiful on your nails. It’s the perfect color to bring a color of romance to an otherwise gloomy palette this season.
30. Nars, 413 BLKR
Of course, there has got to be a deep blue hue for fall, it just isn’t complete without a fall nail color that created a striking bold accent by adding to the coolness of the season and Nars in 413 BLKR is just the perfect color to do that.
