Fall is the perfect season to experiment with nail colors. While most tend to trade out their brights for darker hues (like this one), I think there’s room for both shades this season. Grays seem to be dominating the nail polish shelves at the drugstore. It’s a classic shade that will work as a neutral, and it feels just moody enough for the fall season. However, I really love a hot pink lacquer (no surprise there!) for the holidays. With a festive flair, pink offers a nice break from my usual red polish that I don throughout the month of December. And how about blues? From cobalt to turquoise, there’s plenty of blues to choose from. Even though it continues to remind me of my 7th grade nail polish days (anyone?), a solid blue just feels right for this season. No matter what color you’re craving, there’s a perfect polish out there for you!
