For some strange reason every time seasons change women tend to scramble for everything new. Whether it’s clothes, shoes, accessories or even makeup or nails we are are always looking forward to changing something for the new season. We had a hard time trimming our list to just five nail colors, but here’s our top 5 nail polishes that we absolutely LOVE!
Most of you may feel that blue is mostly for Summer and Spring, but blue or any bluish type nail colors will work for the Fall. The navy blue color that you see above is Chanel’s Fortissimo nail polish which Chanel describes the polish as classic and trend-defining shades in an exclusive formula that strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers high-shine colour. It’s also noted that they nail polish applies evenly without streaking. That really describes this bluish nail color in a nutshell. The only thing we would add to their statement is it’s a limited edition so if you want it you may want to get it fast.
Gray is one of the colors that is technically not a color that you should be oohing and ahhhhing over this Fall. The only sad thing is it’s very hard to decide which gray nail polish to choose from. Below we attempted to give you options between a darker gray charcoal color shown above or a the lighter gray color shown in the picture below.
Kelly of Vampy Varnish states that Storm Bird by NARS is a dark smoky grey creme. The formula is very creamy and opaque. Just two coats covers really nicely, and it’s shiny to boot! I love how dark this shade is and weirdly enough, I do not think I have a dupe for this shade in my collection! I think the closest I have to it is Ciate Vintage, but this seems to have more blue undertones.
Forbidden Fudge created by Sally Hansen’s is NOT a new color but it’s still a really cute nail polish. So if you don’t find this particular shade you should definitely find a replica. Leggy Legend by Essie is similar to forbidden fudge color because of the glittery tones but it is closer to a brass-type color tone. So don’t give up on metallics!

If you selected plum or maroon for your next Fall nail color you guest it! Now it’s just so hard to decide whether you want the regular color with a top coat shine or with the matte top coat.
If you haven’t had a chance to play with the MATTE Top Coat nail polish you should. The matte top coat goes over any color to makes your nails look like the picture shown below :

When you read our ORANGE hair blog you will see that we are big fans of the color orange, but for nails we are only fans of orange nails with awesome designs like you see below:
Honestly, most of these colors may be great for Fall but remember with any season it’s about your true identity. Don’t allow the colors to over power your personality. If you try any of these colors and start to feel that they are too bright for your skin tone chances are they probably are. Be bold with your color choices, but also be smart.. Don’t worry it’s only nail polish. Have fun. If you happen to use any of the colors we’ve suggested please do us a favor and share your pictures with us-PRETTY PLEASE.. 🙂 What do you think of our Fall nail choices?
