Nothing says fall like new seasonal nail polish colors! Honestly, aside from oversized sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and wide-brim hats, the fall nail colors might be my favorite seasonal trend. Nail polish isn’t just a way to switch up your outfit. The shade can also say a lot about your mood or personality.
Nails are the ultimate accessory: color, shape and length can be tailored to your look and inspire your personal brand. Top companies flood us with an overwhelming amount of options each season, making it hard to decipher which shade is for you. Which is why I have made a list of the top fall shades to rock to reflect your #ManiMood!
Understated, but up-to-date with the trends the taupe shade is for the fashion stylista in you. Maybe you have an interview or a first date. You are feeling nervous, but above all you want to be taken seriously without coming across boring. Taupe is effortlessly cool and will reflect that you are authentic, honest and timeless.

For some reason, a classic red apple shade just screams classy-Marilyn-Monroe-lust to me. Maybe you’ve got your eyes on the cute bartender or it’s date night with your hubby, regardless the classic rogue is perfect for a sexy night.

Metallic is a hard shade to decipher. You are feeling edgy and fearless, but also crave charisma and luxury in your life. You are an iron maiden who will save herself from her own tower (while wearing stilettos), thank you very much. Metallic is for the lady who doesn’t need Prince Charming, despite having an appreciation for romance (and drama). Basically, rock this shade for some serious girl power moves.
