One of my favorite ways to transition into Fall slowly (but surely, of course) is through my nail polish choices. Sure, it’s a subtle change from my usual picks throughout the warmer months but it definitely gets me in the spirit of the season.
I’m all about the dark colors and the deep reds but I also like to throw a nice green and a few neutrals in my repertoire. You can find my top picks in those categories and more down below, maybe you’ll see one of your old faithfuls or even find a new favorite! You can shop for each polish directly through the links.
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark – My absolute favorite nail polish, hands down. I’m currently on my third bottle of this particular color which is unheard of when it comes to nail polishes. It looks very similar to polishes 4 and 8 pictured above but I can assure you that they are all very different. Lincoln Park is very purple but appears almost black on the nails. Perfect for Fall and Winter if you ask me.
Marc Jacobs 128 Nirvana – I must admit that what first drew me to this polish was the packaging. I just really like the bottle but it turns out that the color inside is actually pretty amazing. It’s a great forest green that’s colorful but unassuming at the same time. I mean that in the sense that you’re not going to get weird looks from peeps around the office for rocking this green on your fingers this season and that’s kind of a big deal.
OPI Berlin there Done That – Not only is this a fantastic Fall neutral but it’s from a trusted brand and has a perfectly punny name. What more could a girl want in her nail polish?
Nails Inc Kensington High Street – I’m a big fan of red fingernails but when it comes to the cooler months of Fall I tend to gravitate toward the deeper, warmer hues like this amazing oxblood polish. Plus, we all know oxblood is the on-trend color this season.
Formula X Curiosity – Did I mention I’m a big fan of red fingernails? Yeah, I just couldn’t resist throwing a classic in the mix. While this is still a classic red it does have that richness and warmth to it that just screams Fall.
Butter London All Hail the Queen – It just isn’t Fall without a warm metallic and this one combines the perfect amount of neutral & glitz. Plus, I have a soft spot in my heart for Butter London.
Essie After School Boy Blazer – I went out and bought this polish after Carly from The College Prepster suggested it years ago…we even had a Twitter convo about it and I def fangirled. I’ve never looked back. It’s a seriously great color, such a classic navy that’s still sort of unexpected.
OPI Infinite Shine Vampsterdam – I have to admit, I initially set out for a nice grey-beige to round out my neutrals but I just couldn’t find one that fit the bill completely for me so I decided to pull out an old favorite. Vampsterdam is an amazing purple and while it does appear similar to Lincoln Park After Dark and Kensington High Street above, it’s much more of a deep berry tone than those two.
