Nail Polish for Fall


If fall is right around the corner, you are probably pulling out your favorite skinny jeans, riding boots, and leather jackets; but are forgetting to pay attention to your nails! Just like seasonal clothes, nail polish should be swapped according to the seasons. Here are five of the hottest fall colors, according to Pantone, the world renowned color experts; that you should wear and pair with your fall ensembles.

Lichen Green

Green tones have been everywhere in 2013 and are still leading the pack when it comes to the must wear color of the season. Lichen Green is an interesting yet neutral tone that falls somewhere between army green and khaki; and looks slightly unexpected yet elegant. Consider wearing it with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a plaid button down top with an olive toned quilted vest and caramel colored booties to showcase the earthy, green tone.



Step 1.


This shade is a deep purple, reminiscent of an eggplant. It is ultra-glamorous to wear to an evening fall event or party and can stand up to the strong and bright colors of the season. Consider wearing it with a little black dress and sparkly stilettos or a black leather peplum top and jeans.

Mykonos Blue

If you love to wear blue polish, this shade of blue will remind you of the majestic and vibrant tone of the sea around the Greek islands. It’s light and full of energy and sure to make a style statement. Show it off by wearing it with a leopard printed cardigan and boot cut jeans. Add similar colored accessories to pull the look together!

Step 1.


Shades of gray have been featured all over the runway by your favorite fashion designers. This tone is similar to a deep slate gray and is perfect to wear with an off-white chunky cable knit sweater and playful printed pants. Add silver accents to your wrist and fingers to really make the polish shine!

Turbulence Nail Polish




If the name of this color reminds you of coffee, you’re on the right track! Carafe is a rich brown tone that falls somewhere between coffee and chocolate. It boasts a luxurious vibe and can be worn with virtually any color or print and is great for day or night events. Consider wearing a pair of oxblood toned trousers and a stretchy camel colored turtle neck and a rich chocolate brown blazer to get that wow effect at the office.
