Close your eyes and think of the fall. What comes to mind? Gorgeous leaves, apple cider and fresh pumpkins, maybe? Reds, golds, oranges and rich browns are the classic fall colors — and the inspiration for our favorite fall nail trends. You can wear these colors with almost anything and for any occasion. Here are our picks for nail colors and press-ons that are fashionable and, of course, budget friendly.

Fall Nail Trends: 2 Colors 

1. Deep Orange

This deep orange is romantic and perfect for fall. It reminds us everything orange — pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, candy corn. Orange is a cousin to our more neutral palettes, so spice up your look with a sweater and fitted corduroys. Add in this deep orange nail color, and you’ll have a pulled-together, fall ensemble.

2. Matte Red

From season to season, the reds move from light to dark, from shiny to matte. But red is always a color that demands attention. NYC has us swooning for this fall’s red — a deep, dark matte that leaves a smooth, flat finish and mysterious glow.

This particular matte line of polishes boasts a larger brush for quicker color applications. The perfect choice for the busy, yet glamorous lady.  Find NYC nail color at Walmart or Target.
