Nail trends make us happy because they are accessible to every single woman on the planet — and can be achieved whether you choose to shop for shades at a luxury beauty boutique or your local drugstore. As we learned way back in February, when designers and makeup artists unveiled their fall '15 inspirations, nearly anything goes this autumn when it comes to nail designs and color — from the deepest, sexiest wine shades to metallic blue and teeny, tiny geometric nail appliqués. It's going to be an exciting season for nail polish lovers, so let's get started and have a peek at what we have to look forward to wearing.
All shades of blue are having a major moment, but summer's Tiffany blue will be replaced by a deeper metallic blue and a moody navy shade this autumn — the perfect complement to all of those gorgeous gray separates and denim-everything pieces that kept popping up on runways. Jump right in by trying a seductive shade like OPI Russian Navy.
There's a good reason why Marsala is the Pantone shade of the year: It's dramatic, sensual and earthy enough to work with everything in your autumn wardrobe. Take your look one step further by pairing a nail polish like OPI Marsala Much Set with a '90s throwback lip shade — Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bahama is particularly gorgeous.
I am so in love with negative space manis, they feel so glam and sophisticated to me. The perfect mauve colour is a no name @essiepolish I bought at a salon, the glitter accent is @kikocosmeticsofficial fancy top coat 659 and the rose gold stud is @essence_cosmetics. I hope you like it! #notd #nailart #negativespace #negativespacemani #negativespacenails #mauve #malva #mauvenails #purplenails #pinknails #nails #nailpolish #nailpolishaddict #nailsoftheday #nailsofinstagram #craftyfingers #nails2inspire #essie #essielove #essiepolish #kiko #fancytopcoat #kikonails #smalto #unghie #unghiedelgiorno #smaltodelgiorno
It's soft, pretty, feminine and adds a delicate touch to all of those luscious, weighty fabrics and deep colors we'll be sporting come September and October — mauve (defined as a cross between light purple and deep pink) feels thoroughly modern, yet classic, right now. One to try: Essie Lady Like.
Although straight-up black wasn't a common color on fall runways, several models sported colored polish with black stripes or chevron details. A hint of black comes across as classy, yet edgy, and provides a spectacular contrast to romantic Victorian pieces that are all the rage this season.

There's nothing like a goes-with-everything nude nail polish to save you time and help you look understated, but glam, no matter what you're wearing that day. When choosing a nude polish this fall, veer toward those that have a darker, richer brown base — Dolce & Gabbana The Nail Lacquer in Caramel is perfection.
Metallics are major this season, with everyone from Nanette Lepore to Creatures of the Wind sending models down the runway with intense gold or steely silver nails. The best hues are gritty and will look amazing when paired with head-to-toe black (another great fall trend). Butter London Chimney Sweep Nail Lacquer is sexy — and just a little dirty.
This isn't about in-your-face designs that take up the entire width or length of your nail (though there were plenty of those on the runway, as well). This is about the unexpected pleasure of looking down at pale, sweet nails and noticing the teeniest, edgy detail — like a small square, splattering of sequins or thin stripe of glitter. Be creative and have fun this season.
