I'm all about the #EndlessSummer movement, but I'm also a realist who is slowly but surely coming to terms with the fact that summer is ending. Leather jackets and sweater weather season is approaching, which means fall nail colors deserve front row on your vanity. Give those vibrant, neon colors you've been rocking all summer a break for cooler, subtler shades that feel a bit more muted and understated. From a lush green to a copper-kissed orange, check out the best new shades autumn has to offer.
