Sandy White

Nail Lacquer in Coastal Sand-tuary



The fall runways were packed with off-white and nude fingertips, and this sandy shade of white is the perfect nod to summertime if you’re not quite ready to let go of warm weather. Bonus: It also goes with everything


Translucent White

Nail Polish in Dew




Vintage Mauve

Nail Lacquer in Fifth Avenue

China Glaze


$5.80 (23% off)

While bright pinks reigned this past summer, dusty pink shades are set to rule this fall. Pair a mauve nail polish and lipstick for an on-trend matchy-matchy look. 


Universal Nude

Nail Polish in Queen B

Auda B


Nude is a perennial choice for nails, but this season, the sophisticated shade is hotter than ever. This non-toxic vegan polish isn’t your average nude, though — it’s formulated to flatter all skin tones, but it’s made with deeper skin tones in mind.


Merlot Red

Nail Polish in In the Lobby



Grab a bottle of merlot next time you’re browsing the beauty aisle — merlot nail polish, that is! The hint of plum in this rich red adds warmth to a classic tone.


Pumpkin Spice

Nail Color in Cargo Cameo



$6.42 (29% off)

If you’ve been counting down the days until you can order a pumpkin spice latte, this is the color for you. Try a rusty orange to get the “spice” in your pumpkin manicure.


Pinky Nude Polish

Nail Polish in Jane



Pink-toned nude nails will never go out of style. This natural polish is five-free (meaning it doesn’t have any hazardous ingredients) and cruelty-free, to boot.


Cloudy Gray

Miracle Gel Nail Polish in Slate-R Girl

Sally Hansen


$7.49 (31% off)

Love a rainy day? Match your mood to this cloudy color and curl up with a good book. This shade also happens to match Panetone’s 2021 color of the year, Ultimate Gray


Spicy Red

Nail Lacquer in ¡Viva OPI!



This shade of red polish is daring without feeling overwhelming. Wear this bright color for a bold evening out. It’s classic enough to dress up any outfit. 


Berry Red

Nail Enamel in Plum/Berry



$3.88 (27% off)

A deep red like this is perfect for trying one of 2021’s hottest nail trends: An inverted French manicure


Dusty Orange

Have Your Panettone and Eat it Too



This gorgeous dusty orange does remind us of the perfectly baked hue of the Italian Christmas bread it’s named after. Bring a little Italy to your fingertips with this shade that brings to mind the color of autumn leaves.
