I hate pumpkin pie (#teamsweetpotato) and knee-high boots (because I’m short), but fall is undoubtedly my favorite season. The weather isn’t too far removed from summer, sitting outside during happy hour is still an option, and I can start wearing turtlenecks, a clothing item I feel is severely underrated and unfairly criticized. As far as my makeup choices are concerned, they don’t go through too many transition periods because I like what I like. However, fall nail colors are definitely a season-specific trend I like to play with.

As of late, I’ve been sticking to pastels and a lot of Pantone-approved coral, but at my last appointment, I found myself almost going for a dark nude. That moment solidified my fall state of mind. Yes, I’m still enjoying the hot weather and air-conditioning, but I’m already thinking ahead when it comes to my beauty routine. And thankfully, most of my go-to brands have already gotten ahead of the game with their fall collections. From Deborah Lippmann’s wild life-inspired set to Paintbox’s spicy cinnamon shade, here are the fall nail colors–some new, some not so new–I highly recommend grabbing before next month.
