Top Nail Polish Colors & Trends for Fall 2014

As much as we love summer in Manhattan (and the Hamptons) there’s something about fall that makes us all tingly inside. Whether it’s the crisp air, the chic fashion, or the pumpkin spice lattes, few things are as exciting as the changing of the seasons each September.

Though we’ll surely be singing a different tune when the city is covered in a blanket of snow come December, for now, we’ve got cashmere scarves, cozy sweaters, and deep hued nail polishes on the brain. While it may be premature to start donning coats, it’s the perfect time to treat your nails to a little autumn inspiration. From bold ruby to sparkly silver, Haute Living has rounded up our top polish picks for fall.

Partner in Crime

Nothing screams fall like burnt orange and rich chocolate leaves and Essie’s new deep brown shade with mahogany undertones reminds us of our favorite time in the forest.

Style Cartel


Pastels were all the rage this summer, but now that the temperature is dropping, it’s the perfect occasion to swap out robin egg for inky cobalt. For a bold look that’s not as overpowering as jet black, check out Essie’s “style cartel.”


Want to stand out from the sea of neutral nails? Then swipe on this deep violet shade from the NARS 3.1 Philip Lim Nail Collection. Featuring a new brush for improved application, each polish also includes a removable outer cap for ease of use.

Bronze Precieux

As any fashionista can attest, the right polish can transform a little black dress from simple to spectacular. For fancy fall soirees, we like this shimmery gold hue by Givenchy.
