Favorite Fall Nail Polishes

During the fall, I mostly gravitate to dark plum and berry nail polishes with the occasional grey or bronze thrown in for variety.  It shouldn’t be a surprise by now that most of the shades I picked are Essie.  However, I do have a few non-Essie shades that have been long time favorites.

Bahama Mama
When the seasons change, this is one of the first polishes to enter my fall rotation.  It’s a dark plum shade that is deep without being too dark. 

Leggy Legend
This is actually a recent purchase to replace my aging Revlon polish in a similar bronze shade.  Unfortunately I can’t find it anymore so I decided to give this one a try.  Its a bit darker and I’m loving the shade.  Just looking at it makes me think of autumn evenings and the changing leaves.

Lincoln Park After Dark
I remember seeing this shade in a magazine years ago and I lusted after it for years until I finally had the money to justify (ie: no longer living on a student budget) purchasing it.  It’s a dark plum that comes off as a not so start alternative to black.

Fashion’s Finest
I used to steer clear of blue nail polish until last year.  Then out of nowhere all these gorgeous shades started popping up.  This was one that caught my eye.  It’s a sophisticated teal that I quickly fell in love with.

Lady Like
The name pretty much sums up this shade.  It’s a muted mauve that instantly makes you feel like a sophisticated lady.  It also has an emotional significance because it was the shade I wore on my first date with my current boyfriend.  From the moment he complimented me on how nice my nails looked I knew he was a keeper. 

Sheerling Darling
For the last few fall seasons I’ve been searching for the pefect dark red polish.  I think my search is finally over.  This is a stunning oxblood shade that has stolen my heart.  I’m already daydreaming about pairing it with my tan sweater and ridding boots. 

Angora Cardi
This is a rosey plum shade that is a perfect everyday shade.  While most of my fall picks I reserve for the weekends, this is one I think isn’t too bold for the office. 

Merino Cool
This is another shade that is perfect for everyday.  It’s a plummy grey that I like to wear when I want to add a bit of color while still looking polished for the office.  I’ve had variations of this shade in my collection for years but this is by far my favorite.

What are your favorite nail polishes for the fall?

  6. Stunning colours, WOW! I love Essie nail polishes, they are simply the best. :) Lady Like looks like such a wonderful shade! Lovely picks, thank you for sharing <3


  7. Essie nail polishes look so good, I want to try them! I don't use nail polish often, but I think a nice matte burgundy would be great for the fall.
