Fall Nail Polish Colors to Try in November 2018 for a Hip, Fun Season

Fall Nail Polish Colors to Try in November 2018 for a Hip, Fun Season

Get ready to get noticed with nails that take your look to an entirely new and unexpected place. November 2018 is set to make a statement, pairing rich colors with exciting textures and eye-catching allure.  

While you’re packing away your favorite bright colors of the summer it’s also time to pack away the wild, playful attitude those colors embodied and embrace something a bit more sophisticated, edgy and glamorous.

That’s right, rather than the drab, boring autumn tones you’ve seen in the past, this fall is steeped in surprising layers of glam. Neutrals carry a brightness you wouldn’t expect (think white nail polish) while making the most of metallic brilliance. To top it all off, nail art is elevated to a new level of importance with lots of texture and an important aspect to accent. And this time, it’s not holiday-themed.

Let’s take a look at the top nail color trends for fall 2018.

Red wine: While red is a nail color staple, the hue is ever changing. This season you can look to your favorite varietal for inspiration. And why not match your nails to a nice glass of Bordeaux or a velvety pinot noir?

Bright white: Gasp—wearing white after Labor Day? What would your grandma think? Of course, all of the old rules are not only out the window, but they’re ready to become hot new trends. White nails are primed to, if not lead the way, at least play a dramatic role in accenting your nails this season.

Sapphire blue: Admit it, one of your favorite things about fall is pulling on a comfy pair of blue jeans, a sweater, and boots. Why not take this staple look and make it your statement look by giving your nails a pop of deep blue drama?

Blush nude: Autumn is a time when neutrals are an easy go-to. This year we are leaning away from classic neutrals and looking for something with a bit more intrigue.

A soft nude with a hint of sweetly feminine pink is the perfect way to do that. It’s girly and soft with elegant allure.

Greige: The combination of grey and beige has transformed interior decorating and given the old neutrals a fresh attitude. It just makes sense that this color can do the same for your nails.

Layer greige with a French tip in metallic chrome and you’ve got a neutral look that’s tough as nails.

More metallics: Like the idea of metallic chrome as an accent? Of course, you do. So why stop there? Keep it coming with classic coppers, sexy silvers, glamorous golds, and more.

Glitter and shine: Why stop with one metallic accent when you can go glittery. Stick with glitter tones that are metallic or deeper in hue. Stay away from the bright summery colors and pastels and you’ve got a winning look.

Dark olive: This color has been out of rotation for way too long and it’s great to see it taking center stage again. With a military affiliation and an earthy balance, it’s got an emotional pull that few colors have. This hue instantly elevates any outfit with pure power.

Let’s talk teal: Ask one person what teal is and they’ll suggest a light, almost-turquoise color while another person will dive into the depth of the ocean to come up with their version of teal. And that’s perfectly fine with us.

Play with all the shades of this delicious color to come up with your own signature look.

Red, white, and black: Straightforward and sassy, this color combination is a huge hit this year. Expect to find just about every accessory in these colors, including nail polish, and feel free to mix and match them to your heart’s content.

This trend will probably last through next season as well, so it’s got some staying power.

Nails That Are Gallery-Ready

While we’ve covered all the hottest nail color trends for fall 2018, we still need to talk about nail art.

Skip the jack-o-lanterns and other holiday-themed touches and go for texture. This season nail art has a distinctively adult feel with geographic patterns and playful pairings of mattes and gloss to create a masterpiece of depth and drama.

Perhaps the most exciting new trend in nails in 2018 is the idea of pairing your nails with your eyes. This not only leads to a different approach to nail color and accent nails but it’s giving your tired, old eyeshadow palette a refresh with crisp metallics and celebrity-worthy, three-dimensional embellishments.

Final Thoughts

With a new approach to your nails, you’ve got statement-making style all sewn up for the season. Go for the glam and add a distinctively adult punch of power with textural depth and a surprising finish that highlights your eyes.
