Favorite Fall Nail Polish Colors + Pairings

I'm just a little bit obsessed with doing my nails. If I'm not getting them professionally done with gel I'll normally change my manicure every few days since I never want to stop trying fun colors! I especially love the Summer to Fall change of seasons, because it's always a great time to break out the darker, warmer colors from your beauty drawer. Since I've been trying out some new looks I thought I would share a few of my favorite colors that I love for Fall nails, as well as how to pair them with other nail polishes if you want to do an accent or some nail art.


I love the color red for Fall. Mostly I stick with the darker maroons, burgundys and wines. I think the brighter reds are great if you want to make a statement, but I tend to leave those for Winter, especially around Christmas. My favorite Fall mani though is doing a burgundy and gold ombre. I also love mixing in some navys and dark hunter or olive green in my nails. I think they are great warm colors that blend well with the color trends that normally show up in the cooler months. As far as accent colors go I love pairing all my warmer tones with gold (but maybe that's just because I have an obsession with the color...) I hope these colors and pairings inspire you to paint your nails in pretty Fall colors! I would love to see your Fall manis, so tag me @samimast on Instagram so I can check out your gorgeous looks!

  5. Girlfriend, I LOVE the dark purple OPI & forest green Zoya polishes you featured. I was going through a phase where I was cleaning out and trying to "use up" the nail polishes I have before I bought any new ones, but those are SERIOUSLY necessary.

  36. Beautiful colors. I just would love to keep the polish on longer, so I tend to shy away from it due to chipping...
