Summer is officially coming to a close, which means we're just weeks away from the best season of the year: Fall. Call me biased (seriously; do it), but nothing is more satisfyingly cozy to me than layering on some muted nail polishes that always inexplicably seem to match your sweaters. So get you on my level of excitement, I've selected and presented for you the 10 colors you're about to see everywhere this autumn.
Jin Soon Nail Polish in Fable, $18
Step out of your black-polish comfort zone with this inky eggplant shade, which has just enough purple in it to make it feel fresh, not flat.
Cote Nail Polish in No. 99, $18
This neutral hue pairs especially well with silver stacking rings to help you live your most '90s-level fall.
Nails Inc. Caffeine Hit Nail Polish Collection in Chai Kiss, $11
Move over, pumpkin spice—this gorgeously opaque shade is the color of caramel and chai lattes, and looks just as nommy on your nails.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Fashion Collection Nail Polish in Trax, $18
This supremely dark and vampy burgundy will have you day-dreaming of your favorite red wine from the moment you paint it on. Which may or may not be a good thing.
Essie Fall Nail Polish in Dressed to the '90s, $9
Keep dark polish from feeling grunge by picking a shade with hints of sparkle, like this green-tinged purple.
Tom Ford Nail Lacquer in Scarlet Chinois, $37
Tone down your usual fire-engine summer reds with this deep, crimson shade that feels moody, rather than gaudy.
Sundays Nail Polish in No. 28, $18
Standard pastel purple? Sweet, innocent, and definitely Easter-y. But pastel purple with a few drops of slate gray? Well, just look at this gorgeously stormy shade.
Essie Wild Nudes Nail Polish in Truth or Bare, $9
Milky cinnamon doesn't exactly sound appetizing, but there's really no other way to describe this creamy shade, which manages to flatter all skin tones, thanks to its warm-pink undertones.
OPI Iceland Infinite Shine Collection Nail Polish in Krona, $13
The shorter the daylight hours, the greater the need for a strong espresso in the morning, like this dark roast–inspired shade. Now if only there were a way to capture the scent, too...
Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Color in Waking Up in Vegas, $20
Proof that you can't judge a shade by its weird name, this beige-spiked gray looks muted and crisp, no matter how badly you need a manicure.
