makeup monday: my favorite nail colors for fall.

2 comments

It’s September, y’all! Welcome. The start of my very favorite season is ramping up, and I just can’t wait for sweater weather and apple picking and Fall festivals on small town streets. It’s still 90 degrees out but WHATEV. It’s all Fall, all the time here at Plumber’s Daughter.

And with the turn in the seasons, so follows the turn in my beauty color palette — especially when it comes to my nails. It’s like my brain flips a switch on September 1 and I no longer crave the corals and oranges and pinks of the summer season; I want something dark and brooding, something with a little edge. Even if I’m going nude (on my nails, people, on my NAILS), I want it to feel distinctly seasonal.

For this fall, I’m really feeling the jewel tones (for those of you who know me well, this should not be a surprise). Whether a juicy shade of winey plum or a navy so dark it’s almost black, I love the impact a darker nail can have. Polish with an edge (pun intended). This time of year is also when I go for the metallics; not the bright sparkly golds or silvers you might see around the holidays, but the ‘dirty’, antique gold shades, ones with a hint of green in them. If you’re a bit more color averse than I am, nudes are still a great option for Fall, but go for something warmer, less pink more sandy brown. And if you’re looking to buck the trend while sticking with the season, try a bright orangey-red; it’s unexpected but still pairs well with flannels and over the knee boots.

Whether you’re willing to throw down some cash for your fingers and toes, or if you want a pop of color without the price tag, here are my favorite colors for Fall and my recommendations at every price point.

If you’re feelin’ fancy…

 If you want the biggest bang for your buck…

What about you? What are you rocking for the Fall season?

  1. Totally agree! Even if it’s all in my head, I try to get all “moody” in the fall. I love summer, but it is B-U-S-Y, so I’m looking forward to finally having free time to get my nails done. I think I’ll try one of those gold/olive shades.

  2. Right there with you, Melissa! I get all caught up in shorter days and colder weather and that some how translates to ‘Tina goes slightly goth for a few months’ 🙂

    Hope the gold/olive nails work out for you; that Chanel color is to DIE for but I’ve seen some great cheaper alternatives around the nail salons these days that are just as good. Glad you finally have time for a little pampering!
