4 nail polish colors for fall
We’ve seen some pretty wild nail trends over the past few years. From elaborate nail art to ombre to “accent nails,” the creativity has run the gamut.
Creative nails look a little different this fall. Here are the biggest nail trends and top colors, how to wear them and where to get them.
Good ol’ wine:
This should come as no surprise. Every fall, a rich, warm redish-brown comes back into style. It’s like maniclockwork. Maybelline has a beautiful wine color, available at Ulta.com. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish, Wine and Forever, $3.99 (plus Cash Back), Ulta.com
Mauve with a subtle accent design:
A subtle, feminine and sophisticated mauve is in for fall, with a different kind of accent finger. Instead of painting one nail a different color, subtly bejewel or decorate just the ring finger. Try a sleek gold cross or a single rhinestone. Sort of like the wedding band got bumped up to the nail. Find the perfect mauve at Ulta.com.

Metallics often rotate back into the fashion cycle when the weather cools down, but instead of gold, silver or sparkles, pick an older-fashioned copper. With hints of brown, but just enough shine to make it look elegant, copper nails are one of our favorite trends. Just make sure your copper isn’t too yellow. Dingy, yellow nails don’t look healthy.

Call it olive, or feel a little tougher and call it Army green, but whatever you do, get this color on your nails this fall. It’s fun, but it’s still seasonally appropriate. This shade of olive goes great with the other three in-season colors, so you can paint your toes olive and your fingers mauve and stay in the same fashion family.
