The seasons are changing—and your nails should be, too. Ditch your warm-weather mani for a shade that’s reflective of the cozy, witchy new season. V has found the best nail polish colors to transition your nails from Summer to Fall. From neutral earth tones to fiery hues inspired by the falling leaves, these are the polishes you’ll want to wear every day of the season.

yes, I canyon from Essie

This cream polish from Essie infuses your basic orange with hints of yellow and red. The result is a dimensional Autumn shade inspired by the beauty of America’s natural canyons. One thing’s for sure: burnt orange never looked so good. 


Vivid Purple from Madam Glam

Bring the galaxy down to your fingertips with this bold color from Madam Glam. The space-age hue is perfect for the gal who isn’t a big fan of warm tones. Simply apply, cure under UV light, and rock this modern jewel tone all around town.


Chocolate Moose from OPI

V love a good nail polish name pun—the iconic shade of brown is just a bonus. Chocolate Moose is serious eye candy thanks to signature OPI shine and a refreshingly light tint. If you want to avoid moody chestnut shades, this is the color for you.


Rouge 999 from Dior

It wouldn’t be Fall without a classic red nail look. Reminiscent of candy apples and maple leaves, the Dior Vernis nail polish is a must for all Fall activities. Whether you’re bobbing for apples or navigating a haunted house, you can rest assured knowing your nails look frighteningly good.


Lights Out from

Go full Rolling Stones and paint it black. After all, Fall is the season for darker colors. Black cats, cauldrons, pointed hats, and even the night sky itself will reflect this daring polish from 


Autumns Up! from China Glaze

Not every Fall polish has to be gloomy. While the season is known for overcast days, there’s always an occasion for a pop of color. Try this mustard yellow from China Glaze for a bright look that channels the same vibes as fresh-baked pumpkin pie.


Silk Dreams from Sephora

Bring on the glitz and glam with this punchy burnt nude nail color from Sephora. Part of the brand’s Color Hit Mini line, the half-sized bottle’s polish packs a serious punch. Warm undertones help the shimmering rose gold color fit in during Fall.


Geometry from Olive and June

Indie nail salon & brand Olive and June are taking you back to the classroom—at least, metaphorically. This eye-catching hunter green hue, dubbed Geometry, evokes the chalkboard as much as it does the forest. You don’t have to be a trend expert to know that this earthy nail color deserves an A+.


Dianna Boss from Pear Nova

Sometimes, simplicity is the way to go. With a shade like Dianna Boss, it’s not hard to want to. The warm pink nude is the perfect way to transition from peachier Summer hues into muted Autumnal tones. It’s a subtle shade worthy of the quiet, cozy moments that make the season special.
