Ahh...So many beautiful nail colors, where do I begin? It seems everywhere I look I see a new "fall nail trend". Navy, metals, bordeaux (the color of the season), textured top coats, shimmer, glitter, neutrals, metallic french manis. The list goes on for miles.  Is your head spinning yet? Good, I'm not alone. The navys and burgandys are so rich and creamy. I'd drink them if they weren't so toxic. And of course I had to include some of my favorite ever classy reds. Great for all seasons! 


  1. I'm definitely more of a nude, pop and metallic girl than rich and stormy. Have you used any from the collection? Which are your faves? Is there a kind that applies the best and lasts the longest?

  2. I love bordeaux and I will definitely be trying your picks!

  3. Thanks for asking Sarah! Black Cherry Chutney by OPI is my new fall favorite! It's a deep burgundy with more of a purple than red hint and slight shimmer. I always have loved Russian Navy (another OPI goodie) but I'm excited to try the Vapour polish. Their products are 100% natural (70% organic and 30% vitamins/minerals). For neutral I've been using OPI Barefoot in Barcelona. I keep it in my purse to use if I need something last minute. Clambake by Essie is my favorite red/coral. And you've seen my blog post on the Essie Penny Talk metallic. It's a fun color to try!

  4. LOVE this post!! I love all Fall Fashion wear, and especially nails. OPI's "Russian Navy" is a CLASSIC and Essie's "No More Film" is definitely one I need to get my hands on! Love your blog, keep up the fab work! :)


  5. I'm obsessed with No More Film & of course my FAV. Russian Navy!
