Beauty Bar | Fall Nail Colors

I'm definitely not alone in my love of changing my nail color to fit the seasons. Here's a quick round-up of what I'll be on my rotation this season. 

Lubu Heels - China Glaze

I love black nail polish during winter. Lubu Heels by China Glaze is a black polish with a twist. From a distance, the color looks like a simple black, but in the sunlight you can see tiny flecks of red glitter. It is also very affordable! Get it here on Amazon. 

Gray Matter - Formula X|Sephora

This has been my go-to fall shade for the past year. Sephora's Formula X polishes are my favorite--they are creamy, quick-drying and very pigmented so you don't have to use many coats. Gray Matter is a perfect matte gray that looks chic with any fall look. Shop it and all 100+ shades now at Sephora

Double Down - Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy

I don't usually use metallic shades on my nails, but when the holidays come up I am drawn to the more shimmery shades. I love this copper because it is understated yet still lends you a touch of shine. It's a unique choice from the standard gold or silver and is affordable to experiment with from Walmart

London Court - NAILS INC.

This year I am getting into the muted pastel trend--anything with "dusty (insert color here)" in the description has my attention. Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo named their daughter Dusty Rose in homage of this beautiful color, need I say more? Since this tone is muted and warm, it won't wash out paler winter skin tones. Check it out here

Now and Zen - Essie

It's hard to tell from this picture, but Essie's Now and Zen light cement-gray shade has a sage-green tint to it. This is perfect for winter if you don't want to go full into the forest-green polish trend and love a neutral nail. Check it out at Target

Pastorale - NARS

If you've taken even a perfunctory read of my blog, you know I love a trans-seasonal piece. The same holds true with a trans-seasonal polish. Pastorale by NARS can glimmer by the lights of your holiday party just as well as being your toes-in-the-sand color for the summer. It's a little pricier, but you'll use it year-round. 

Dark Forest Green - Burberry

Green nail polish is a major trend this year. All shades of forest, khaki and even bolder green tones are popping up everywhere. Personally, I prefer a very subdued version of this trend. If I am wearing green on my nails, I want the color to be just right. I love this elegant deep forest color by Burberry. The green is not jarring but still makes a statement. It doesn't hurt that the packaging is just as lovely as the color! 

I realize in making this list that I left off the essential red nail! However, I feel like everyone has a favorite red that is tried and true for them. I love Really Red by Essie, but I am always open to finding that perfect red. What nail colors are you crushing on this season? Let me know if I missed something amazing. :)
