nail colors for fall and winter
Let’s look at some of the lovely nail shades to choose this season.
The hint of orange in this Dior nail polish makes it feel warm and autumnal, making it the perfect transitional shade as we move from the warmer months to cooler weather.
To tap into the colors of the season, choose a color inspired by Halloween pumpkins. The London Town nail color (below) comes in a muted pumpkin shade which is almost like a nude or a neutral, so it’s a lovely subtle take on the trend.
While you may usually wear a deep shade like burgundy for winter and Fall, how about a different dark, dramatic color like forest green? A great way to add a quick, on-trend element to all of your outfits.
A soft pink or nude shade is on trend any time of year. Look for a nude shade with beige or orange tones to fit the Fall season.
Caramel shades look beautiful for Fall. The essie nail polish (below) has a shimmer, so it’s ideal for party season. This polish has good reviews from wearers who say it is highly pigmented and good quality, and it also comes in bright red, orange, and green if you want to treat yourself to a few different colors.
A dramatic classic that is ideal to go with your winter party outfits. Add burgundy nail varnish to your favorite little black dress outfit.
Yellow is a bold, beautiful shade that doesn’t have to be reserved for sunny months. Choose a mustard yellow shade for Fall. Perfect to bright up your favorite jeans and sweater outfit, even on the dullest days.

Gold and sparkly
A little bit of bling for you now. If you have parties coming up, you could add gold nail polish to your look. The Emilie Heathe nail polish (below) has bamboo extract to help nourish your nails.
Coral is often a shade you associate with summer, probably because it looks lovely against white shades and tanned skin. But it is also just as stylish for Fall and Winter. The orange base adds a warm element that is perfect for all seasons.
If you like a darker nail shade but don’t want to go too “gothic”, then choose navy rather than black. We also love the coral, nude, and gold shades in the CHANEL LE VERNIS range.
Add a pop of bright color to your winter and Fall outfits with the Gucci nail polish (below). Perfect to wear against black or navy in the colder months.
If you want to give yourself a few nail color options this season, then choosing a nail polish set with different shades is the perfect choice. Also a great idea if you’re looking for gifts this season.
