Trending fall nail colors for fall are generally on par with shades that match the changing leaves, somber neutrals, and dark bold shades. All of these are still very relevant this year, but autumn nail shades are a lot more versatile than you’d think.
So don’t go chucking those spring and summer nail colors just yet. Reds that range from brick to wine, vibrant jewel tones from emerald to sapphire, snazzy gold and glitter, pastel lavender and neon green are all the rage this year.
Use these fall nail polish shades to try out some of the on-trend fall nail designs. They’ll go great with your chunky sweaters, fingerless gloves, and that rake.
17 Fall Nail Colors
1. Smith & Cult in Peaceful Paranoia
If you’re not quite ready to let go of pink, try this smoky blush polish that’ll complement the (hopefully) cooler weather.
2. Butter London in Toff
This mauve shade is flirting the line between neutral and bright. The low-key purple polish complements just about anything, even these Hocus Pocus Crocs.
3. Essie in Mosaic on Down
Summer may be on its way out, but don’t put away those sunglasses. You’re going to need them when you mosey down to the nail polish aisle and snag up this gold shade. It’s almost as loud as those jazz hands you keep doing.
4. Smith & Cult in Fade the Sun
This shimmery orange lacquer is the perfect shade for the pumpkin patch. Why thank you for volunteering to carve ours.
5. OPI in Espresso Your Inner Self
Nothing expresses our inner self like this neutral polish and the thing that gets us up every day – our alarm clock.
6. Jinsoon in Audacity
This rich red color pairs well with the glass of Merlot that’ll make it look like your left hand painted both.
7. Essie in Butler Please
Signs we aren’t posh include the fact that we had no idea butlers wore blue. Oh, and now we’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day?
8. OPI in Graffiti Sweetie
9. Smith & Cult in Darjeeling Darling
Pay tribute to the only trees that don’t lose their leaves in the winter with this evergreen polish.
10. Sally Hansen in Dark Hue-Moor
This dark blue shade is a mood. According to our mood ring it says we’re feeling romantic. Or we’re hungry for waffles. Probably both.
11. OPI in Drama at La Scala
We may not be heading to the beach in the fall, but this deep teal polish reminds of the deep, dark ocean and our nightmares.
12. OPI in Violet Visionary
You’re going to want your nails to be looking their best while you’re stirring your witch’s brew. This bold purple color should do the trick. Or treat.
13. JinSOON in Dew
Nearly bare nails are a hit this fall. Give your natural nails a coating of milky white polish. Because we tried actual milk and that doesn’t seem to stick.
14. Essie in Cargo Cameo
While you wait for the PSL to come out, paint your nails with this rusty orange polish.
15. OPI in Good Girls Gone Plaid
This rich plum lacquer is the perfect moody shade for fall, without going full on midnight. We’re already asleep by then.
16. Morgan Taylor in Black Shadow
17. Sally Hansen in Zip Wine
The perfect vampy nail color to wear while watching horror movies this fall and adding more garlic to your dishes than the recipe calls for. You rebel you.
