Fall Favorites: Nail Polishes

Here are five nail colors I have pulled out of my stash to wear this autumn.

Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Nail Color in Firefly---duochrome pink copper with slight green shift (that I couldn't capture in the photos!)

Sephora by OPI Nail Color in Once a Cheetah, Always a Cheetah---slightly sheer orange with fine gold glitter (this one reminds me of pumpkins... if they were sparkly, that is)

Sephora by OPI Nail Color in S-age is Just a Number---duochrome bronzy-green with gold shimmer

butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in The Old Bill---rich bronze with silver shimmer

JINsoon Nail Lacquer in Nostalgia---creamy nude pink beige (perfect for giving me mannequin hands, which always seem on trend, regardless of the season)

Here are a couple more photos of the more complex colors.  (They are hard to capture!)

Since I haven't really ventured into the world of nail art, I tend to just wear one color on my nails at a time, so I try to choose colors that look interesting on their own.  I would like to try some of the geometric nail designs I've seen in magazines and on the runways, as well as an ombre manicure.

What do you like to wear on your nails this time of year?  


  1. I, too, haven't quite developed a knack for nail art and so tend to wear just one solid color on my nails. Great suggestions!

  2. Ooh, love all the metallic and duochrome shades. Great picks! xo
