Everyone must have noticed the sudden temperature drop lately. It’s got a little chillier than usual, so it’s probably worth nothing down the appropriate A/W colours to be wearing on your nails and getting them painted asap. Autumn came around sooner than expected so if you’re still wearing summer nail colours, here at the 10 Autumn Nail Colours to switch to, just in time for the season.
You can’t go wrong really. It’s practical, sophisticated and can be paired with pretty much anything so it’s always a go to colour for nail varnish. The great thing is that around Autumn, any shade of red is a go to. Whether your outfit needs brightening up or you do, fire engine red is always a brilliant Autumn nail colour to go for.
Autumn is the season for Navy. It’s a step up from black in terms of lighter colours but is still very casual and easily paired with clothing, be it your day to day work uniform or your Saturday lounge gear. It’s the colour that I always pick up during Autumn, so make sure that you buying at least one shade of an Autumn nail colour in Navy.
Brown is the perfect colour for Autumn. It’s a season full of chocolate so it’s only appropriate that it’s a great shade to be wearing on your nails around this time. It can be dark and deep like hot chocolate, or even a little lighter to go with a bit more of a nude vibe. Either way, brown should be on your Autumn nail colour buy list.
And speaking of nuder colours, why not pick up a nude? Something simple on the nail is always welcomed after a season of bright pinks and oranges, so nude is the best nail varnish colour to go for when you’ve finally managed to get the vibrant pink glitter stain off. It can be found in a nice beige, or maybe you’re looking for something pinkier to enhance your actual nail colour? Finding an Autumn nude will be super easy.
If you’re not quite over the buzz of summer, then try a metallic nail varnish. They’re still glittery to keep summer reminiscence around but toned down enough to camouflage as an Autumn nail colour. Metallics are usually all the rage this time of year (what with winter being a very metallic season) so finding a metallic nail colour to suit you shouldn’t be too hard. This is one of our favourite autumn nail colours.
It’s time to embrace the Autumn season and that means saying hello to grey skies. And what better way to welcome them than by getting a nice grey nail varnish for the Autumn season. Grey can range from being stone coloured, to almost white so you’ll have a variety of Autumn grey nail colours to choose from. It’s a versatile colour, so make sure you stock up. This is one of the best autumn nail colours.

It’s a shade that’ll last right up till Christmas so it’s pretty much the ideal Autumn nail colour to be buying about now. It’s dark but feminine and perfect for cold Autumn nights.
People tend to stay away from white as a nail varnish colour, but it’s actually the perfect colour for Autumn. A light dusting over the nail keeps them looking healthy and chic, as well as really helping you at avoid chips in the varnish. It’s another colour that’ll last all the way up till Christmas and can even run on past it, so definitely pick up white for your Autumn nail colour this year.

A really muted pink colour is gorgeous for Autumn. The fact that It’s slightly dusty means it’s feminine but still in keeping with the current season. It’s also another nail colour that only needs a light coat, so chipping is prevented. And if you’re not an Autumn colour person, it’s a fantastic way to keep in touch with the season. Find yourself a dusty pink for your Autumn nail colour.
10. Glitter Top Coat
If you think none of these are the one, then just grab yourself a glitter top coat. It’s a minimal effort nail colour that still looks really pretty. You can pretty much get away with any colour, although gold is always a good one to go for. And once again, it’ll last you all the way up to Christmas and beyond.
