Fall is officially here, which means that it’s time to stash away summer shades in favor of darker, moodier and more season-appropriate nail polish colors. Like the colors of the leaves, so go the nails of celebrities, from Kylie Jenner to Cardi B.
To find inspiration for your fall manicure, we’ve looked at the early-fall nail polish colors that our favorite stars are painting their digits. From signature fall colors like deep reds and rustic oranges to the shades that you wouldn’t exactly call autumnal, here’s is the fall-inspo nail guide that you’ve been waiting for.
After she couldn't decide which shade of pink to paint her nails, Jenner thought of the best solution: Paint each nail a different color. The reality star showed off her ombré-inspired manicure in August with her hands in a bath of pretty pink water.
