The smell of crisp apples in the air, the taste of pumpkin pie and spiced lattes. Fall is here ladies. Not only do we need to make sure we change are hair routine from summer to fall, it’ also time to change are nail polish colors from bright pinks to warm reds. I love teaching how to style and care for hair, but for this post let’s change it up from hair to nails. Here are a few of my favorite fall nail polish colors to make nails pop and scream fall time.
First start with a base coat. Using a base coat will prevent your nails from staining and help your manicure last longer. I stay with the classic:
Sally Hansen Insta-grip base coat.
It’s a Piazza Cake
This is my number 1 favorite color for fall. It looks like you have a little pumpkin on each nail.
O Suzi Mio
Perfect fall purple. It’s not to dark, not to light
If you’re a purple girl check this on out!
I love a good OX blood red. I took me years to
find one I love and really give me that dark
blood red color.With Essie I always do three
coats to really get the full effect.
Essie Sole Mate
Want to take your red a little darker then
an OX blood red? If so check out sole mate.
I always have a hard time choosing between
Bordeaux and Sole Mate. Sole Mate is going to give you a
little more of a purple tone then the Bordeaux.
OPI Dark Side Of The Mood
Like to keep it more neutral on the nails?
I really like this shade because it’s a dark
grey with a little blue tone to it. Still neutral but
the blue tone will help it so the color won’t fall flat.
Morgan Taylor Little Black Dress
There is nothing better then a true
Black. Morgan Taylor is my fav new
brand for nail polish. This black goes on
smooth and shine like no other.
OPI Uh-oh Roll Down The Window
Army green is in the air. This is the best
fall green I have found. I love using this
color as an accent nail with a taupe or grey.
OPI Berlin There Done That
Sometimes I like to just keep it simple.
I love a rich taupe. Berlin there done that
is awesome because its not to pale so it
won’t wash out your skin tone.
Taylor Morgan Dress Code
Let’s keep it light. Just
because it’s fall doesn’t mean you
have to stick to dark tones on your nails.
This light grey is a great way to stay in the season
without going dark.
Don’t forget to end your manicure with a top coat. This is a must to add shine and keep your polish from chipping. Sally Hansen Mega Shine IS THE BEST TOP COAT EVER!!!!!!! (In my opinion). Being a hair stylist I’m in contact with water all day so my manicure can only last so long. This top coat not only helps my nails dry quickly, it builds a shield of mega lasting, no chipping, crazy shine for more then a week manicure. I bet someone who’s hands aren’t in water as much as mine are a manicure will last longer then a week with help of this top coat. Seriously try this top coat.
I hope you found some inspiration for you fall nail colors. Hair is my passion, but I go crazy for good nail polish and great colors. I seriously could post 1,000 more of my favorite colors and don’t even get me started with glitter polish. Have fun painting!!
