The beautifully changing leaves, the crisp evenings and the heavenly earthy after-summer scents, are all testament to the fact that autumn is actually on way!

As the changing season brings a wardrobe update, what we are more looking forward to are the nail colors this season. Why, you ask? Simply, because this fall isn’t about the boring old pumpkin and cinnamon shades.

It’s rather lively with understated nudes, rich plums and vibrant blues. Read on to reveal our Top 10 Fall Nail Colors to try this Season, all with gorgeous swatches:

Rich Plum

Nothing contrasts yet signifies fall as a rich plum. Opt for an aubergine, or an eggplant or simply a gorgeous violet, all shades of plum are perfect for fall.

We personally recommend this beautiful, intense aubergine crème shade that’s sumptuously glossy – Deborah Lippmann Dark Side of the Moon. The shade looks maroon-ish black in low light but the fall sun brings out the perfect shades of eggplant.

Cashmere Pink

A beautiful choice for those not up for bold shades, a muted petal pink that reminds you of your coziest cashmere sweater is the perfect nail color for Fall.

The color adds just a hint of pink blush to your nails to give you the My Nails but Better Look. While it’s perfect for day time looks (think work makeup), it also works to give just the right amount of understated glam for a night out look. Check out Deborah Lippmann Shape of My Heart for the perfect shade of pink.

Mulled Merlot

The perfect shade to welcome the colder seasons, the garnet red color is yet another gorgeous pick for Fall.

Its red, its classic, its inspired by Olivia Pope of the Scandal fame. Do you need more reason to try it out?

Chic Glam

Nope, it’s not a red. You don’t always need a siren red to be glamorous. An understated slated grey can do the same job, or even better! Pair it off with your black leather Fall wardrobe and you are good to go!

Our favorite pick for this color is Deborah Lippmann Love in the Dunes.  A beautiful crème gray color with just the right hints of lilac, the color is perfect for those knee high boots and bomber jackets.

Shades of Green

While nature may not be as green as you like, there is nothing wrong with wearing shades of green during Fall. Be it moss green, peacock green or emerald green, all shades of green are perfect for transitioning from summer through autumn straight to the year-end holiday season.

The only problem with nude colors, be it for the nails or lips, is that if the shade isn’t just right, it may look dull and drab. Our solution? Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Fashion.

Glistening Gun Metal

A rather unconventional, nonetheless, gorgeous trending shade for Fall is gun metal gray. The color is edgy, sleek and borderline avant garde.
