The Best Fall 2019 Nail Polish Collections
Where to buy: From $16.50, Amazon
Chances are, you no doubt already love OPI for its kitschy names and stunning shades, but the iconic brand has truly outdone itself with its new fall Scotland collection. Featuring 12 novel colors inspired by kilts, bagpipes, and even the infamous Loch Ness monster, there’s a country-inspired shade here for just about everyone.
Sure, you’ll have to shop much of the collection piecemeal to get your hands on all 12 shades, but you can speed the process along through Amazon, which is offering up several colors from the retailer’s line in four to five-piece, travel-friendly gift sets. The selection above, for instance, includes Edinburgh-er & Tatties (a warm beige), You’ve Got that Glas-glow (a light purple), Rub-a-Bub-Pub (a coal gray), and Boys Be Thistle-ing at Me (a rich purple).
Where to buy: $35.00, HSN
Essie went all out for fall. In addition to the six gorgeous autumnal shades it added to its already-impressive roster — a bright forest green called Sweater Weather ($8.92), a dark taupe gray named Easily Suede ($8.20), a cheery yellow dubbed Hay There ($8.92), a gorgeous caramel hue of On the Bright Cider ($8.92), a deep burnt orange in Rust Worthy ($8.92), and a golden peach named Home Grown ($9) —the company also created an exclusive fall metallic set just for HSN as part of its Treat Love & Color (TLC) line.
Nail buffs (pun intended) love TLC because it helps to nourish your nails in addition to making them look great. Its secret weapons are the camellia extract and collagen found within, both of which help to strengthen and reinforce your natural nails. In fact, Essie’s website claims that use of its TLC products will result in 60 percent less peeling and 35 percent less breakage after just one week!
This full-size set of four metallic polishes contains Keen on Sheen, a gorgeous rose gold that looks great on every skin tone, Laced Up Lilac, a shimmery lilac, Pep in Your Rep, a regal bronze color, and Power Plunge, a steely silver shade. Needless to say, all four shades lend plenty of pizazz. Better yet, they’re also free of icky chemicals such as dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene (a toxic solvent), and formaldehyde.
Where to buy: $20.00 each, Sephora
Autumn is the best time to experiment with fun, vibrant hues, and Deborah Lippmann’s Natural Mystic Mini six-piece set ($36), which comes chock full of deep purples, bright blues, and even a look-at-me pink, gives you the perfect opportunity to do just that.
In addition, the brand has four fall-ready shades in its new The Wild Life gel pro color collection that are just right for Halloween parties, apple picking, or cozy nights spent on the couch with pumpkin-scented candles in tow.
Choose from Been Around the World, a full-coverage creamy fawn color, Fight the Power, a full-coverage cobalt blue, Spill the Wine, a full-coverage berry wine hue, and Rule Breaker, a medium-coverage holographic purple.
As always, Deborah Lippmann’s polishes are also “7-free,” meaning they’re made without the chemicals toluene, formaldehyde and its derivative formaldehyde resin, poisonous camphor, plasticizers diethyhexyl adipate (DEHA) and DBP, and xylene (a toxin). Instead, they protect nails and help them grow thanks to stimulating ingredients that include nail strengtheners such as evening primrose, keratin and biotin.
Where to buy: $29.00, HSN
At this rate, we’ve got a ways to go until spring, but everything’s coming up roses anyway thanks to Smith & Cult’s Coming Up Rosey Nail Lacquer Trio.
These captivating shades are formulated to be “8-free,” providing smooth, rich pigments without tons of chemicals.
This particular set of three full-size polishes features Peaceful Paranoia, an opaque gray with a magenta sheen, 1972, an opaque rose gold, and Stockholm Syndrome, a deep opaque gray, that will work to add brilliant shine to your manicure all season long — or at least until the next batch of colors arrives!
