The one with the fall polish.

fall nail polish

It's that time of year again! While others start getting excited about boots, scarves, and hot Starbucks drinks, I'm pulling out fun new polishes. ;)

So here are some of the colors I can't wait to wear during fall...

Ok, when this color first debuted at Nordstrom (you can now find it at Ulta as well), I didn't really know what to think. It's not very "me," but I'm glad I went outside my comfort zone. I'm sure I will be getting a lot of use out of this metallic olive polish during the coming months.

If you happen to be ghostly pale like me, run - don't walk - to pick up a hunter green polish. It is so flattering!

I call this my grandma polish. In my gammy's medicine cabinet she has one lonely, dried-up Rimmel polish from 10 years ago, and it happens to be this exact color - a brownish rose. This color is so lady-like and classy, perfect for work or brunch with girlfriends.

Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like collage

Ah! I'm obsessed with this color. Technically, I believe this came out in the summer collection, but how perfect would this be with a mustard-colored cardigan?

Now this is a polish. Stunning and vampy with some serious sparkle - everyone needs a wine-colored polish for fall.

Zoya Petra collage

(Did anyone else think of Peeta when they saw this name? No? Just me?) ;) While it is darker than some of my favorite grey polishes, Petra is more flattering. I think I have that hint of purple to thank. 

So now it's your turn. What colors are you loving for fall? Leave me some suggestions please! :)

That is all.

  2. Ha ha ha, I just posted about this on my blog, went to check my reader, and you had up your fall polish post! So funny! Ashely, we were meant to be friends ;) Okay, I am wearing Essie's "carry on" today on my nails. It is a deep eggplant - definitely not something I would normally wear. But I love it! It is just a little daring, or daring for me at least.

  5. Confession: I'm scared to try bright colors (like the green or that Deborah Lippmann!) because I feel like I'll look silly, like I'm trying to be one of my students. I KNOW. It's irrational, because it looks adorable on everyone I've ever seen wear it. This post makes me want to try and pull it off :) Such great colors.

  6. I agree with Carly Mary, you have SUCH a great eye for polish. Hmm I think you need to be hired as some sort of nail polish expert somewhere because clearly you've got a knack for it!

    The colours you picked out for Fall are to die for. Especially those gold and green shades!

  7. Great picks! I picked up Ulta's Army of 1 a few weeks ago and I love it! It's a perfect olive green. My other fall favorites are Orly's Plum Noir and Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic.

  12. great picks for fall ashley!
    i adore the bright blue because i agree with incorporating bright nails with your wardrobe, especially in the fall.
    a drug store alternative that i have used before and love is Pure Ice Taupe Drawer that closely resembles the "grandma polish" butter london Toff. i absolutely love purples in any shade!

  14. All of these colors are gorgeous. I'm ghostly pale, so I'll be scouting out a hunter green color the next time I'm out shopping.

  15. Ash this is just what I needed! I have been SO bored with my pedicures lately, mostly because I can't seem to find the right shade. I am going to look for these colors next time!

  16. These are all so gorgeous. The British Racing Green will be mine. One day.
    For fall I love me some Chanel Vendetta. Then again: I love it alway for my toes...

    On a side note: did you see that Ulta is having Butter London Nail Polish BOGO on September 20?! I am totally stocking up!

  18. I totally agree as far as a vampy wine colored polish goes! I've been wearing my own - not sure what brand, it's somewhat old! - for a while now.

    I am LOVING Essie Azure. So pretty! I doubt many people think of a bright blue going with Autumn clothing but... Oh well. It's gorgeous. And I love adding some silver sparkle. (Which would ROCK in Winter!)

    I'm hoping soon I can pick up Essie's new color Very Structured. It's like pumpkin pie for the nails, ahhhh!

  19. Love how into nail polishes you are. I am nail polish-challenged, so this is quite the education! And I am ghostly pale as well!

  20. I've already had my eye on the Zoya Petra...I also want to try the Camo Green color called Dree. By the way, I manage a spa...so I'm surrounded by nail polish on a daily basis...we use our own colors that our made for us...but we also carry RGB polish which I really like! Currently on my nails: Essie in Mink Muffs topped with a gold shimmer by OPI for Sephora. :)

  21. I love every single one of these colors, especially the metallic olive! I'm gonna jot them down on my shopping list hehe. I can't tell you what my favorite fall color is yet since I've been refraining from buying anymore polishes. But I want to sprint to the store now!

  22. Why do you have such AMAZING taste in nail polish?? Do you ever have some bad picks?? I'm digging several of your shades. And your awesome polish pictures. I need to up my game... this post is awesome.

  23. British Racing Green - I NEED it. And I know we've been tweeting about it all day but I LOVE that so many of us posted about fall colors today! I even painted my nails a green tonight (Zoya - Dree) because I was inspired so much by this post. But I still need that British Racing Green!

  28. Gorgeous colors! Thanks for the recs! This fall I'm definitely loving the brown tones and the light brown and beige tones!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oooh, very pretty colors! Okay so I guess I'll be making a trip to ULTA this weekend to buy some new make up & nail polish. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I adore that sparkly olive colored polish! It looks great with your skin tone and is very autumn-y :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. So I just found your blog and I have to say that I love it! Everything about it is so adorable, it's seriously great, and I'm a new follower now! I absolutely adored this post in particular because I love nail polish and fall is my favorite time for them! I love all the colors your chose, and props to you for doing an awesome job painting your nails because even though I love nail polish, I suck at doing my own! I just bought Essie Power Clutch and it looks very similar to the grey Petra shade you're sporting, so I'm excited to try it out. I love all the colors you chose though, thanks for sharing! xoxo

  32. Love this since I am equally obsessed with nail polish. I was actually planning a post for next week involving some of my recent picks. I LOVE that green one, but I am by no means pale, so I can't pull off colors like that. "Toff" looks fabulous, though, and I may have to pick that up. I think at the end of September Ulta is having buy one get one free for Butter polishes! I hope it applies to online purchases as well since I don't live near an Ulta. Gah.
