As the weather outside slowly but surely settles into the sixties, it is finally time to admit that autumn is officially here. And with the changing of the seasons comes the very necessary task of updating my nail polish collection. I've officially done away with the neon and pastel hues from the summer months in favor of deeper, richer shades. And, while I love my old faithful colors and formulas, a few options from cult-favorite brand Ella+Mila have made their way into my usual rotation.

If you're unfamiliar, Ella+Mila is a vegan nail polish and makeup brand that stocks a full lineup of seasonal shades that are all designed to be chip-free, fade-resistant, and, above all, great for the environment. Named for the founder's two young daughters, the brand's range of seasonal nail colors all retail for only $10.50 and are available to shop in finishes that include sheeny metallics and duochromes, over-the-top glitters, and other classic pearlescent options, too.

Every polish is also created without the use of harmful acetone or sulfates, which means that you can swap out your shade on a weekly (or even daily!) basis without harming the health of your nails in the process. The brand even makes its own soy-based nail polish remover—as well as a full range of affordable aftercare products, topcoats, and base coats—so you can transform your at-home nail care routine without breaking the bank. Excuse me while I never return to the salon again.
