Whipping out your light jackets, seasonable boots, and thicker athleisure staples makes one thing abundantly clear: Fall’s a-comin’ (pumpkin spice lattes are officially available, after all). But as you clutch your warmer beverages and transition your wardrobe to the next season, you need to pay attention to your beauty staples as well.
Yes, you’re slathering on thicker serums and moisturizers this time of year, but to round out your look, you’ll need to dip your nails into this season’s hottest transitional hue: The neutral polish.
“I like to dial back the color for the transition from summer to fall and tend to lean on light, neutral shades that are understated classics.” —Nadine Abramcyk, Tenoverten co-founder
While this summer was all about the vibrant neons and nail colors inspired by the beach, subdued is more so fall’s speed. “I like to dial back the color for the transition from summer to fall and tend to lean on light, neutral shades that are understated classics,” says Nadine Abramcyk, co-founder of New York and LA-based nail salon Tenoverten. The brand’s Canal color is a perfect take on an upgraded nude.
They may be subtle—you may even be thinking borrrrring—but neutrals evoke an air of sophistication that meshes well with tweed and wool essentials that are integral to the season. Trust me, I too used to feel nude to be no fun, but it’s true: the colors have a near-magical ability to make any outfit look instantly more chic and pulled together.
To properly transition your mani, look for milky almond shades that evoke the desert and pastel browns that all scream “I’m ready for you, fall.”
