Here They Are: 21 Chic Nail Colours We’ll Be Wearing Exclusively This Autumn

Whether you’re an autumn person or not, I think we can all agree that any new season is an exciting time to mix things up when it comes to things like your wardrobe and beauty routine. And I’m not saying you have to get completely new clothes and swap out all your makeup products for new ones—the cool thing about seasonal transitions is that tiny changes can make an impact, too.

That might mean buying a few new items of clothing or accessories to mix in with your tried-and-true basics. Or trying out a new lipstick, eye shadow look, or even a new nail polish color. The latter is one of my favourite ways to change things up because it’s pretty low-lift in terms of effort and it can be a subtle change. Opting for an autumn-inspired nail colosr instead of your usual at the salon is pretty easy, right? And it’s a lot more temporary and effortless than trying out a new haircut or creating a dramatic eye-makeup look.

For me, autumn is the best time to really commit to some dark nail colours. The weather is cooler, the leaves are a pretty red/orange/yellow, everything feels cosier—all of this calls for some dramatic and deep hues. Am I wrong here? Take a look at some nail polish options below as inspiration for your next salon or at-home manicure.

It honestly doesn’t get any more classic than this bordeaux red. You’ll be wearing this beyond autumn.

You can’t go wrong with this deep, sultry red.

Revlon’s dark red polish is chip- and fade-resistant. And it leaves a glossy finish.

This deep brown polish is so cosy, yet sophisticated.

If you want a lighter option, try this mid-brown. 

This brown polish has a little bit of shimmer, making it more of a bronze tone.

There’s something just so luxurious about a deep, emerald green. It gives an expensive fee (maybe because it’s like the color of money?).
