Fall’s Jewel Tone Nail Polish Picks

Admittedly, I’m a fan of Fall because I have an excuse to wear tights and cardigans once again.  (That’s not to say that I don’t wear them most of the Summer, but once Fall has arrived, I get fewer bizarre looks as I chill on the beach in tweed.)

And though Summer is still hanging on, every fashion publication (Hello, September issue!) is launching a major push for Fall threads, colors, and my ever-favorite: booties.  But one easy Fall trend you can get on without having to re-stock your wardrobe?  Nail polish.  I LOVE nail polish.  And though I’m not kind to my polish – I store it in a giant bin under my bathroom sink (so chic!) – I love to buy more and more.  This Fall’s color trend is looking rather royal, and I dig it.  So I’m off to the store to stock up on burgundies, navies, emerald greens, and more.

Are you a fan of the new fall hues?  Have a favorite?

  1. Yes yes yes to all of these beautiful polish colors! I just painted my nails bright pink this morning so I’m not exactly ready for fall yet… but once the cool weather hits I will definitely be wearing all of these, especially purple!

      haha, I tend to switch back and forth between brights and darks, so no worries! Hot pink is always a winner in my book!

  2. Treated myself to a mani in a super-dark burgundy and I’m officially obsessed!

  3. loving the dark fall colors, definitely going to give these colors a try!

  4. Nice picks! Also I agree that nail polish is a great and cheap way to update ones fall wardrobe.


  5. I just had my nails painted a burgundy color and looooove it! I usually don’t go for reds but I’m obsessed with dark shades of red for fall. I love all your purple picks too!!! xoox

      Dark reds have been a long-time favorite of mine, but I’m starting to branch out with other warm tones and they actually look great on all skin tones!

    Heh just got back from the salon and had my nails polished a pale seafoam blue the last huraah of summer. Next time it will be grey. Maybe that color we go in our swag bags. It was great meeting you at the Lucky Fabb Conference.

      haha, I’ll definitely still be throwing in some fun splashes of color, but I do love the warm tones for Fall! And I have so many fun things to try from the swag bag. 🙂
