Behold: Team Byrdie Shares Their Favorite Burgundy Nail Polishes

Burgundy nails are quintessentially fall. True, there's no written rule that says we have to save our favorite shades until the leaves turn and chillier temperatures arrive, but it's kind of like listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving; it just doesn't feel quite the same (though by all means to each her own.) And while there are plenty of other dark and ominous hues like navy, charcoal, and chocolate, nothing will ever replace the deep, vampy spot the perfect burgundy nail polish has carved deep within our heart.

However, that doesn't mean each shade and formula is created equally. There have been plenty of times we've swiped on a polish that appears promising only to end up looking like an extra on The Walking Dead. Yes, that's (certainly) a vibe, but it's not entirely what we're going for. And since we know we're not alone, we thought we'd round up the tried and true burgundy nail colors that never let us down.
