Wait. No scrolling down just yet — can you take a guess? We’ll give you a hint: It’s not burgundy, brown, oxblood or various shades of the classic maroon we typically see. It’s also not nude, red or shimmery gold. The No.1 fall nail polish shade Makeup.com gals are sporting this season (and all over the MDC office) resembles the night sky — well, when it’s dark and stormy. Rich, dimensional, pearlescent shades of royal blue are what we’re all currently obsessed with. We took a vote, and it was unanimous.

Fall Nail Polish

This isn’t to say we love our traditional fall shades any less, no. But, royal blue is the perfect balance between that cozy winter-esque feeling you get when the weather cools down and that bright pop of color that reminds you of good ol’ beach days. And we’re currently feeling all the feels for this beautiful blue hue. It’s deep, yet shimmery. It’s dark, yet bright. How can ONE shade be all of those things?! It’s mysterious (and technically an oxymoron) … and that’s why we’ve all got matching manis and we don’t care who knows it! If you’re not sure where to start, try one of these boys in blue …
