Normally opt for nude? Change it up with a coco brown.

SHOP CLUTCH, REBECCA MINKOFF,
BROWN NAIL POLISH RGB Cosmetics HIPP x RGB Nail Foundation – F4

This year, don’t be afraid to try colors that are traditionally seen as boring. Brown, for instance, is surprisingly flattering in manicure form. The earthy shade is subtle, yet surprising, making it the perfect accessory to elevate your fall wardrobe.

Usually go for jet black? Try deep navy.

SHOP NAVY NAIL POLISH

Navy is the perfect color to try if you’re a fan of dark nails. The color looks superb against classic fall hues like mustard yellow or army green and works in both casual and formal settings. If you opt for the navy nail, make sure to finish your manicure with a high-gloss top coat. The shade is at its best when it’s super duper shiny.

Dig pastels? You might like soft sage.

SHOP SAGE NAIL COLOR

Green is often overlooked when it comes to nail colors. This fall, experiment with the shade in lighter form. Great for all skin tones, the hue has the same softness as a pastel, but adds a cozier element that makes it ideal for cooler seasons. We love seeing the color paired with moody ensembles for an unexpected visual contrast.

Die-hard French mani fan? Give it a gothic update.

SHOP VAMP NAIL POLISH

Got a black tie event coming up and want to make a real statement? Try this French manicure with a modern update. Swap the usual nude base for black, navy or deep berry and instantly transform the ladylike classic into something experimental. The look pops against rosy glasses of bubbly, so be prepared for lots of compliments at the party.

Gravitate towards bright red? Go rogue with burgundy instead.

SHOP BURGUNDY NAIL COLOR

If you prefer to stick closer to your comfort zone, simply switch shades. For example, burgundy is a great fall alternative to the classic apple red. The oh-so-elegant color is smashing against a crisp neutral wardrobe for the office. For something edgier, ask your manicurist to finish the look with a black detail.
