Fall fashion is known to include cozy sweaters, tall boots with bold hardware and supple leather handbags in rich earth-toned palettes. However, if you really want to enhance your fall outfit of the day, add a luxurious nail lacquer to your style list as a go-to accessory from one of these five fall lines.

CND’s Contradictions Line features soft creams, neutral colors and deep hues, such as Peacock Plume and Rouge Rite, that complement the reds, greens and blues we adore during this season. The collection includes two different formulas: SHELLAC® Brand 14+ Day Nail Color and VINYLUX® Weekly Polish. While SHELLAC® maintains your manicure for 14+ days, VINYLUX®, which carries the same shades as SHELLAC® minus the need for a base coat, keeps the look fresh for up to a week.



Hot on the heels of New York Fashion WeekMischo has released its Fashion Week collection, which contains Backstage Beauty and Front Row in vamp hues of red, and Invite Only and Lincoln Center (homages to NYFW) in shades of grey. However, the standout color, Empire State of Mind, is a bold blue reminiscent of aquamarine mixed with sapphire. Almost every set comes with the signature color, a top and base coat.

Sugarloom Cosmetics joins the fun with a bit of texture and brightness, keeping in line with the palettes of the season. Creep is a gorgeous green with a gray undertone, Fuzzy Sweater features a rich plum with a hint of sparkle, and Orange Peel adds a plump citrus kiss to your nail.

OPI has created 15 colors for its fall line entitled Venice. Along with the traditional deep shades, the brand incorporated some lighter colors such as Grand Opera-tunity in soft peach and Gelato on my Mind in mint blue.

LVX is following the Marsala wine-colored craze with its latest line. Plus, it’s tossing in five other polishes including Monarch, which inspires nail royalty with its opulent gold tone, while Nu and Rhone represent the ultra-dainty sheer nude lacquers.

This season, while you’re holding your spiced latte, amp up your manicure using one (or all) of these standout collection.
