Pumpkin-spice season has officially descended upon us. But if you’re not quite ready to break out the leather jackets, blanket scarves and ankle boots, start small with a mani-pedi in one of the season’s trendiest colors. Here, nine polishes to look out for.
This metallic hue is richer than rose gold and reminds us of an idyllic fall sunset.
You’ll see every shade of red under the sun this season (what with it being the “it” color and all), so save the smoky tones for your digits. (Short-nailed ladies, rejoice: Deeper reds make your nails look extra long.
If deep reds and pretty pinks aren’t really your style, try an eggplant hue instead. Think of it as a transitional color between summer’s vibrant brights and winter’s deepest shades.
NOT QUITE NUDE
Beige, caramel and toffee hues were spotted all over New York Fashion Week, just not on the hands that matched them. Pick a color that’s several shades darker or lighter than your skin tone for a refreshing take on a neutral mani.
Like a grown-up version of millennial pink, this is perfect for those of us who gravitated toward blush-colored manicures all summer long.
On a crisp autumn day nothing beats a warm cup of coco in your hands. Except maybe having that exact shade on your nails.
SHIMMERY MIDNIGHT BLUE
Be still our Lisa Frank-loving hearts; Essie named this fun-loving jewel tone Dressed to the Nineties. Let’s see how long the first bottle will last.
Burnt-orange and deep-red manicures are both on trend, so why not combine them into one super color reminiscent of the changing leaves?
Somewhere between gray and beige, this neutral hue pairs particularly well with another one of our favorite fall trends: pastel outerwear. So feel free to use your manicure as an excuse to splurge on blush leather.
