Popular Nail Colors for Fall

Popular Nail Colors for Fall

We are seriously getting pumped for fall! Temperatures are dropping, Starbucks is selling PSL’s, and football season has begun. There’s so much to look forward to in this new season — but we are especially obsessed with fall fashion and accessories. This doesn’t just mean shoes, clothes, and jewelry — but nail colors too. So before you head to the nail salon, you need to think about transitioning your nails from bright and fun summer colors to jewel-toned or neutral colors for fall. Thankfully, we are here to help! Here are some of the most popular nail colors for fall this year:


Burgundy nails were practically made for fall! They perfectly match the beautiful colors on the falling leaves outside your window. Burgundy nails will pair well with a ton of fall wardrobe staples like brown booties, white scarves, and dark wash or black jeans. If you’re looking for something a bit different, try out matte burgundy coffin nails for a killer look.

Pumpkin Orange

What’s better for pumpkin picking than pumpkin orange nails? It’s a great way to transfer your love of everything pumpkin from pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin bread onto your nails! Since this color is a bit brighter than some of them on this list, it’s definitely ideal for early fall — especially the month of October when the world seems to really transform into autumn.

Apple Red

You can’t go apple picking without apple red nails! This is a classic nail look that can be extended into the Christmas season as well. Even though it’s definitely a classic, it’s also pretty bold and can really add a pop of color to dark-colored fall outfits. We personally love pairing apple red nails with a black and red plaid scarf for a top-notch outfit.

If you want a little bit of sparkle in your life, then gold nails in the fall are a great option for you. Gold is a great nail color because you can go more subtle with just a bit of shimmer or you can go all out with an eye-catching shade. Gold nails pair great with gold accessories like earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.


If you aren’t a fan of gold but are still looking for some sparkle — consider bronze nails! Bronze nails are a bit more low-key than gold while still being just as beautiful and elegant. They pair well with fall classics like cable-knit sweaters, knee-high boots, and stockings.

Emerald Green

Another jewel tone that’s amazing for fall is emerald green. We feel like emerald green nails are totally underrated! If you do them right, they look totally regal and will make you feel like royalty. This is especially true if you decide to go for a matte look. Emerald green nails pair well with black, white, and browns — all fall color staples!

Navy Blue

Going darker, we have navy blue. This color isn’t as eye-catching as some of the others but it’s great because it tends to go well with a lot of things. We especially love navy blue nails with metallic accents like gold, bronze, or even rose gold.


Finally, we have black. Even though you may think that black is too dark for fall, there are ways that you can spice up your black nails for fall. Adding in gold or copper nail art is a great way to do this! That way, you can still get a little shine and sparkle while still being neutral.

With all these beautiful fall nail colors, it’s definitely hard to choose! Thankfully, fall is long enough that you should be able to try out a decent amount of these amazing options before winter.
