While the summer-meets-fall intersection can be tricky to navigate on the clothing front, there’s an easy way to make the jump when it comes to beauty. Simply switch up your nail polish colors. Making the switch is cost-effective and an instant mood-booster. Plus, you can score stellar shades for under $5 so you can change things up every single day of the week. Or every few hours. We won’t judge.
You may think that summer calls strictly for bright shades and fall demands darker hues, but it’s really not that cut and dry. Everything from eye-catching pinks to neutrals perfect for French manis to borderline neon hues can all still hold their own straight through September. But if you’re looking for something a tad deeper, opt for rich wine shades, more mellow yellows, bold blues and gorgeous grays. (Gray is set to be the color of fall, after all.)
Read on to discover the 15 nail polish colors that will make the transition to fall a whole lot easier. Still looking to hold on to a bit of summer? Rock these colors on your toes as well for a matchy-matchy vibe.
