Real talk: The weather has put us through a lot lately. Fall is finally about to arrive, which means pumpkin season is near and Halloween is around the corner. What better way to feel festive than with a fun nail color like orange? If you haven't tried citrus hues on your nails yet, we've scrolled through Instagram to find some screenshot-worthy designs to get your color wheels turning.

The best thing about orange is it looks good on all skin tones. Whether you're going for vibrant or pastel, orange is one of those under-the-radar shades that don't get enough credit. Plus, orange includes a spectrum of shades: apricot, tangerine, peach, salmon, and more. Use these groovy designs to inspire your next nail salon date.
