Whether you like it or not, fall is coming. Get ready for that pumpkin spice craving to start kicking in and prepare to keep up with the latest manicure trends as the season changes. This year may be different because of the pandemic — you may be shopping online for some new cozy hues instead of going to a salon and just picking one off the wall — but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate the arrival of cooler months with some chic nail shades.
We love a range of darker, moodier polishes grabbing bottles outside the bright whites and vibrant shades we had been dedicated to all summer. Almost as if instructed by Mother Nature herself, fall has arrived and with it, a whole new lineup of staple classics and unexpected newness to decorate our nails with.
It’s not exactly a hard-fast rule to change your polish with the season, but the fall invites change, and we joyfully accept. Especially when that change comes with a color range like this season. New shade options include earthy forest green (like Essie’s cozy Sweater Weather), a delightfully cheerful creamsicle orange from JinSoon, and an updated take on the deeper fall classics — blues, reds, and purples. The new polishes of the season will give you 13 more reasons to get excited about fall.
