The Best Nail Polish Colors for Fall ♥

The Best Nail Polish Colors for Fall

I love painting my nails for different seasons and fall nail colors are probably my favorite of all. The deep hues of red, burgundy, taupe, and all the shades of blue and grey are tons of fun. I’m not that great at painting my nails (as you can see below), but that doesn’t stop me from trying! Since I love painting my nails, however bad I might be at it, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite nail polishes for fall and I want to mention that nearly all of these are natural nail polishes so they will be around the $10-$20 price point. That said, they last ages and ages so I find them to be a worthy investment!


Kure Bazaar in Sofisticato 

This is a gorgeous taupe brown color. It’s a lovely neutral hue for work days or days when you’re going for understated looks. I really just like this muted tone and I think it looks good on everyone 🙂 Kure Bazaar polishes are my favorite, as you know, and I own TONS of them!


Karma Organic Spa Polish in Tropicana Nights // Butter London Nail Polish in Union Jack Black

Karma Organic Spa has some of the most affordable natural nail polishes (only $10!) and some really incredible soy polish removers so I love them for their affordability. Tropicana Nights is a bright neon orange which is great year round, in my opinion. I love using it in the summer with blues and I love using it with this awesome Butter London polish in Union Jack Black (it’s JET black!).


Zoya Nail Polish in Faye // Kure Bazaar in Smokey

Zoya nail polishes are another line of non-toxic polishes which are extremely affordable. You can get a selection of them in Ulta or online for only $9 which is comparable to regular brands and they have some seriously gorgeous color options! This one is a sheer shimmery purple with golden sparkles. It’s so pretty on it’s own ( see below ) and over the top of more opaque colors (as shown above). Above, it’s layered over Smokey, a grey-blue, which is one of my absolute favorite colors ever.

Kure Bazaar in Smokey (middle nail) // Kure Bazaar in Boyfriend (index and pinky) // Loréal polish in dark Navy

Smokey is a grey-blue, again, Boyfriend is muted muddy mint green, and the Loréal navy polish is a deep navy (almost looks black) color that I bought ages ago at Target.


Kure Bazaar in Smokey // Kure Bazaar in Mademoiselle K

As you can tell by now, I’m obsessed with using Smokey. I think I layered it over a darker color in this one, but I can’t remember. Mademoiselle K is a gorgeous red-berry color and it’s perfect for fall nails!


Kure Bazaar in Smokey // Zoya Polish in Mia 

Last, but not least is Smokey again (of course) and Zoya polish in Mia, a pretty petal pink color! I love this one for rainy days 🙂

    It’s funny the cashier at the supermarket had a similar taupe nail polish and it put me in the mood for fall colors on my nails. I might have to get a taupe one! Though I find it hard to maintain it properly on my hand, it always chips so quickly

    1. September 9, 2015 at 10:37 AM

      yeahh definitely do! It’s so pretty and unexpected 🙂 I have the same problem – nail colors chip so fast on me haha. I try to use top coat, but I think it’s because I wash my hands too much or something.

    I love how you mixed the Zoya and Kure! That final color is beautiful and perfect for fall.

      yay! I’m so glad you found it helpful Angie 🙂 non-toxic nail polishes can be so amazing and just as good as conventional ones, in my opinion – hope you try out some good ones!

    These are some nice colors for sure. I love to deck my nails out with pretty fall colors too, but I don’t slow down enough to really do them that often. Thank you for these suggestions.

      I totally know what you mean. It can be hard to take time to actually paint my nails, but I really enjoy it when I do and I’ve gotten better about taking time out while watching TV or whatever to do it 🙂

    Such pretty fall nail color combos! I love that smoky color! I don’t have a gray color yet in my collection.

    I like to get silly designs on my toes – like pumpkins 😉

      haha that sounds like fun! I’m too cheap to pay to get my nails done, plus they don’t use non-toxic colors that I prefer to I like to do my own. I need to buy some decals though!

  9. September 15, 2015 at 1:43 PM

    Some lovely autumn colours, I’m starting to get mine out too! Definitely cracking out some fun designs I reckon 🙂 Glad I’m not the only one that ends up with polish around my nail too! I’ve now taken to using a cotton bud & nail polish remover to clean up, just so I don’t end up taking the polish off another nail while trying to pick it off! Winning 🙂
