Our Favourite Nail Colour Trends for Fall 2018

The change of season does come with its advantages. Sure, we may have to say goodbye to the beach, rooftop parties, and cute bikinis, but what we lose in sizzling summer activities we gain in fall colours, pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and Halloween. When it comes to nail art and design, we love this year’s bold and festive colours:

Shades of Caffeine

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that brown is the wrong colour for nails. In the fall, you can get away with wearing bolder, darker shades without anyone judging you or quietly wishing you would choose something a little more cheerful. In the fall, caffeine colours are highly appropriate—think of the golden-brown glaze of your Thanksgiving turkey, or the carpet of crunchy-brown leaves, or the mountain of trick-or-treat chocolate. Check out these gorgeous shades of brown polish:

  • ·       Krona by OPI – a dark roast cappuccino
  • ·       Cinnamon by Zoya – a rich bronze flecked with gold
  • ·       Mink Muffs ­by Essie ­– a creamy café au lait
  • ·       Chocolate Cakes by Essie – a decadent milk chocolate

A New Take on Classic Red

Traditional red nail colour never goes out of style and is suitable for all seasons. If you’re looking for something moodier and darker to reflect the shorter days of fall, try these amazing fall shades of red. They may not be as flashy and bright as classic vixen red, but they will add a touch of drama and elegance to your nails:

  • ·       Trax by Marc Jacobs – a deep vampiric burgundy
  • ·       Scarlet Chinois by Tom Ford – an angsty dark crimson
  • ·       Alyssa by Zoya – a cranberry cream with slight purple tones
  • ·       Broody by Butter London – a deep shiny raspberry

With a Mix of Clouds

There’s no better time to add a touch of grey to your look than when the clouds form a permanent blanket over the sky. Grey nail colour is elegant, subtle, and goes with every outfit. Embrace the cloudy weather with shades of grey that are anything but boring. Try these trending colours:

·       The Latest and Slatest by OPI – a very moody slate grey

·       Waking up in Vegas by Deborah Lippmann – a creamy greige that delivers unexpected sophistication

·       No. 28 by Sundays – the perfect combination of lavender and grey

·       Chinchilly by Essie – A classic cloudy light grey

Orange You Glad?

If you can’t sport orange nail colour during the most orangey time of year, when can you? Not only is orange in abundance in nature–e.g. pumpkins, leaves, etc.—it’s also one of the official colours of Halloween. It would be a shame to pass Autumn by without paying it the homage it deserves. Try these not-so-spooky fall oranges:

  • ·       Atomic Tangerine by Sally Hansen – pure, bright, Crayola orange
  • ·       Meet Me at Sunset by Essie – vibrant orange kissed by coral
  • ·       No Tan Lines by OPI – perfect for summer and fall, this is a summer sunrise and candy corn all at once.
