I always say that no detail should be left unturned when it comes to getting dressed up for an important event or even just a normal day when you want to go the extra mile to make yourself feel good. It is worth putting a little extra time and money into the things that make you feel your best – from head to toe! Hence, why I wanted to explore current nail trends for the change of seasons. Just like clothing and accessories, there are certain shades of nail polish that have more of a significance than others this time of the year. So whether you are a DIY queen and prefer to polish your nails from the comforts of your own home or if you go to a salon to get them professionally done, here are the most coveted fall 2021 nail colors.
Much like fashion trends, I found that chocolate brown continues to be one of the top sought after fall 2021 nail colors to wear, whether it be via clothing or nail polish. I love the deep, rich color that this shade imbues. It is a great neutral that will seamlessly work with your pre-existing fall wardrobe. So in terms of crowning the ‘it’ nail polish color of 2021, my vote is for chocolate brown!
In addition to the aforementioned, metallic shades also have a major role in both clothing and beauty this season. A quick polish is an easy way to add a luxurious touch to all your looks this season. For those who prefer warm tones, brilliant golds and rose golds would be a good fit for you. On the other hand, glistening chromes and silvers are just as impactful. Use these shiny polishes as an accent or give yourself a full on metallic manicure and pedicure to make a big beauty statement.
One of the fall 2021 nail polish trends I am most excited for is the push for varying greens. Everything from matcha greens to dark evergreen colors have quite literally gotten the ‘green light’ to be one of the most coveted nail polish colors of the season. The earthy tones tend to compliment the darker neutrals we all collectively tend to gravitate towards at this time of year. But if you want a polish that will act as a subtle pop of color, lean towards the lighter, mintier shades.
If you are looking for a classic manicure that can go with absolutely anything you wear, nude is your answer. This year, the trend is to find a specific nude that is a perfect match to your own complexion to create a seamless effect. Personally, I love that we are bringing back the naked nail look. Some days all I really want is something simplistic and clean so there is less fuss and maintenance.
The last fall 2021 nail color I wanted to highlight is merlot. This deep, sultry shade naturally coincides with the autumnal vibes. It always manages to look sophisticated on your nails or toes too! When shopping for nail polishes within this family, look for deep berries, warm merlots and even burgundies. You could also try throwing on a matte top coat instead of a shiny top coat for something a little more toned down.
