This past NYFW has rightfully predicted the nail color of the season. Not brown, not forest green, not orange but red. And we are not talking about cherry or fire truck summer reds. Think vampy, dark, and moody shades. These vibey shades of red make for the perfect mani-pedi color as we move into the spooky season. If you are apprehensive about going so dark, a few segway shades that aren’t as intense, like scarlet or metallic reds, can ease you into those darker tones.
Red nails may feel like a special occasion color, but they aren’t just for runway or red carpet events. The right shade of red can add the right amount of spice to everyday life and is a top fall color for all your autumnal activities. Planning to go apple picking with the family? A warm deep red may be the perfect shade. Picking the perfect pumpkin for jack-o-lantern carving? Opt for a red with a bit more orange in it. Fall date nights with the boo call for a deeper red that shows passion. Whatever the fall occasion, red is the season’s color. You and your nail tech know it, so shop the ten best fall shades below for that runway-ready manicure.
Ahead, we’ve curated some of our favorite reds for fall.
