Nailing It // Best Nail Colors for Fall


A little over a week ago, I walked into my neighborhood nail salon to get a quick gel mani before shooting with my gal, Mary.  As I stood there staring at the vast expanse of choices, I got completely overwhelmed.  I froze and ended up with a shade of red that’s been bothering me since.  First, let’s just all agree that when the worst of your problems is hating the color of your manicure, life is pretty good.  However, here are four shades that will keep you from making the same mistake I did…


Deep Purples / 01 / 02 / 03 / Dark Blues / 01 / 02 / 03

New Nudes / 01 / 02 / 03 / Moody Greens: / 01 / 02 / 03

  1. I completely related to this – frozen panic resulted in a red-pink color I was bummed about for a week! Ugh. Thank you for these brilliant picks, so useful. I’m now sporting a navy shade and couldn’t be happier about it.

  2. I couldnt agree more! I hate when I pick the wrong color, and then i always feel some type of guilt for going back and wanting a color change!

  3. Another f a b u l o u s color is Chanel’s Blue Satin 461! Stunning deep, deep navy blue one can get! I wear it all year long.

  4. Love those greens! Thanks for sharing.

  6. nice fall colors…love!!!
