As someone who's been wearing acrylic nails for over four years straight, I love to switch up the nail color on my claws often. From big apple reds to pink pastels, my nails have seen it all. But I particularly love the fall season because it's the chance to experiment with much deeper and richer hues à la different shades of browns and yellows. If you're ready to step away from the bright oranges and pinks of summer, we've got some color suggestions that'll pair nicely with your PSL (only partly kidding about that last part).

So without further ado, here are some on our favorite picks to step out into fall season.

Essie Expressie Binge-Worthy 360 Quick Dry Nail Polish — $9.00

One of the best things you can do with your nail color is to choose one that isn’t going to clash with your wardrobe. This is exactly why we love this cool, grey-toned Essie polish. It’s subtle enough to blend into your autumn aesthetic, but is still bold enough to show you’ve got style. Not to mention, it’s 8-free so you can feel good wearing it all season long.

China Glaze - Autumn Spice Collection — $24.84

If you really love fall, then let these colors from China Glaze inspire you. The gorgeous mix of milky and dark browns are perfect for the person who likes to keep things classy and sleek. It’s the colors that won’t be too distracting, but are bold enough to make you feel empowered.

OPI's Raisin' the Bar — $13.00

This red-brown hue is bold, sexy and perfect for a night out (or a night in—it’s just perfect). Best of all, its gel-like formula gives you long-lasting nails without having to step foot in a nail salon.

Breathable & Halal Nail Polish — $20.00

This candy red is the perfect fall color to paint onto nails. We like it because it’s Halal and sticks on nails, but never leaves them feeling brittle or destroyed.
