Although that reddish-orange you've used during previous autumns is still hot—and always will be this time of year—going a little deeper into red is now also haute. Try this Sonia Kashuk Whining Maroon Nail Enamel ($4.99 at Target.com) for starters.
Go Dark Green

A deep hunter green will go great with the earth tones and neutral shades you'll be rocking this fall—from those brown leather riding boots to that camel-colored poncho sweater. Try this shade: Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Billionaire ($16 at LippmannCollection.net).

This manicure shade is back again this fall. Our favorite maker of the color by far is Dior with its Dior Vernis in Blue Denim ($22 at Nordstrom.com).

You can't go wrong with purple, but for fall, go with a rich, dark purple like the SpaRitual Nail Lacquer Shoot for the Stars ($10 at SkinStore.com). It'll look amazing with all of the blacks and grays you're going to be wearing this season. You can even pair it with earth tones.

If you're the type of gal who likes to make a statement, don't forget about trying a bright metallic mani! This Confetti by MBA in Tahitian Turquoise ($1.99 at CVS stores nationwide) might be a little intimidating, but it's a great nail shade for autumn. It can also carry over to the holidays.

Don't shy away from gray just because it's not a conventional manicure color and usually likened to cement. True, it's not pretty, but the Style Essentials Moonlight (price varies at AlmarSales.com) sure is edgy.
