10 Fall Pedicure Colors to Look Forward to Wearing

Updated 08/24/18

It feels like June 21—aka the summer solstice—was simultaneously just yesterday and also three years ago. Clearly, we're torn between hanging onto the last days of summer with everything our bikini-clad bodies have and getting excited for fall to be a thing again. (Well, not that the seasons change much here in Los Angeles, but still.)

When fall comes, it ushers in a slew of new beauty products and trends, and among them, gorgeous new shades of nail polish. In preparation for this momentous occasion wherein we swap our pastels for moodier hues, we rounded up the best fall pedicure colors. See our picks below. 

Mustard Yellow

Fall 2018 Nail Polish Collection
Essie Fall for NYC $9

Arguably the must-have shade from Essie's fall 2018 collection is this glossy mustard yellow polish. 


Butter London Glazen Peel Off Nail Lacquer Gold Rush $12

Glitter now counts not only as a shade but also a neutral in our opinion. This one from Butter London easily peels off. 


Cote No. 38 $18

A deep, rich red hue that flatters every skin tone. 

Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish 156 New Wave 0.43 oz/ 13 mL
Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Polish Jezebel $18

A perfect-for-fall shade from Marc Jacobs.

Burnt Orange

Smith & Cult Tang Bang $18

An orangey shade that feels very '70s shag rug but in the best possible way. 

Iconic Infinite Shine
OPI Iconic Infinite Shine Yank My Doodle $13

Like a pumpkin spice latte for your nails. 


Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish
Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish Lost in a Dream $20

The color of both a bad energy–banishing herb and one of fall's prettiest pedicure colors. 

Zoya Nail Polish Sage $10

A not-quite-matte, not-quite-glossy green that's also 10-free (read: no toxins). 


Insta Dri Nail Color
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Nail Color Making Mauves $5

A fall-ified version of Pantone's color of the year. 

Yves Saint Laurent La Lacque Couture Mauve Alternatif $28

The purple tone of this YSL option makes it especially well-suited for next season.
