Into the Nude

Nude nails are clean and classic and this season's paired down subtle shades do not disappoint. Dior in Pied De Poule, $25.

Lady in Red

Add a bit of glam to your look, day or night, with this deep ruby shade appropriately named Dress to Kilt. Essie Nail Polish in Dress to Kilt $8.

Purple Rain 

Ultra rich dark jewel tones are right on trend this season. Opt for a purple hue for a luxurious and regal take. 3.1 Phillip Lim Nail Polish in Crossroads, $20.    

Grey Matter

Shades of grey worn head-to-toe is a major trend but, if you're not ready to take the full plunge, test drive the hue with a mani. L'Oreal in Grecian Goddess, $5.

Pretty in Pink

Blush pink is a mani fave and this season is no exception. Michael Kors in Coquette, $18.

Chocolaty Brown 

For an instant Fall update dip your digits into a milk chocolate hue – a great nude for darker skin tones. Marc Jacobs in 152 Bark, $18.
