Gray-Scale Whites

NCLA Nail Polish in I wanna Wake Up Where You Are, $16

BUY IT

2016 was the year of white-out nails that were so crisp and bright, they were almost blinding. But this fall, we're seeing a rise in creamy, barely there grays; just gray enough to feel understated, but still opaquely white enough to keep nails from looking dingy.

Rich, Merlot Reds

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Polish in Unwine'd, $7

BUY IT

We'll be honest: Red hasn't felt "new" or "fresh" since the first time someone painted it on a zillion years ago. But this red from Sally Hansen—which also happens to be infused with argan oil, so it won't kill your nails—has the perfect mix of blue and merlot-based tones to make your nails look bright, not gaudy.

TenOverTen Nail Polish in 048 Catherine, $18

BUY IT

It's hard to find a peach polish that doesn't conjure up images of your mother's peach-and-cream wedding aesthetic, but this camel-hued peach is anything but dated, thanks to its milky-white base that pops against your skin.

Blue-Based Fuchsias

Tom Ford Nail Lacquer in African Violet, $36

BUY IT

Yes, this polish is definitely on the pricier side, but please just gaze at the incredibly gorgeous violet hue, which perfectly walks the line between fuchsia and royal purple, without looking severe. And yes, the color looks the same on your nails as it does in the bottle, which is a major win in our book.
