September is a unique month—it signifies the change in seasons, and the chance to revitalize your fashion and beauty choices as we move into autumn. And there’s plenty to consider—say Pumpkin Spice Latte or Peppermint Mocha? All black wardrobe or … all black wardrobe? Difficult, we know.
But, one of the easiest and most satisfying transitions to implement? Nail polish.
To prepare you for fall, here are five nail color trends you HAVE to try.
Creamsicle Nail Polish
Orange is usually referenced as a bold, upbeat and show-stopping color, but this retro shade may quell some of your fears. Creamsicle is a great middle-ground between muted pastels and daring neons. The hints of coral create a more floral and peachy tone, and will remind you of summer as we work our way into PSL season.
Blue is generally considered a risky color when it comes to beauty products (ahem, ’90s eye shadow), which is why a rich, royal blue works. It combines the class of black and the boldness of blue into a magical, whimsical masterpiece. Talk about the perfect shade to begin your transition into fall—without going borderline leaf colors.
Forget you ever heard the phrase, “Don’t wear white after Labor Day.” It’s super dated, and we’re over it! While true white can be a bit overbearing, ivory is a crowd-pleaser. It’s devastatingly elegant, and has been seen more and more on this year’s runways. Plus, ivory matches with almost all colors without stealing the spotlight from your statement pieces. It’s bright, cheery, and an all-around fab way to start the season with a clean slate.
We know what you’re thinking. Brown nail polish?! There are many ways to work this shade into your repertoire, but a mocha tone with deep, burgundy notes is our absolute favorite way. Paired with any ensemble, this color gives your hands the pop of delicious color they’ve been craving. Just don’t apply this on an empty stomach, or you’ll want to eat chocolate before they’re dry!
Okay, so this isn’t one color, it’s a lot of them! This trend demands attention—both from you and those around you. There’s a huge variety in textures and color combos, giving you endless options! We tend to prefer the sleeker, flatter lacquer to the chunkier varieties, but you do you. The world is your oyster—make it sparkle!
