Whether you’re a “fall” person or not, I think we can all agree that any new season (fall or not) is an exciting time to mix things up when it comes to things like your wardrobe and beauty routine. And I’m not saying you have to get completely new clothes and swap out all your makeup products for new ones—the cool thing about seasonal transitions is that tiny changes can make an impact, too.
That might mean buying a few new items of clothing or accessories to mix in with your tried-and-true basics. Or trying out a new lipstick, eye shadow look, or even a new nail polish color. The latter is one of my favorite ways to change things up because it’s pretty low-lift in terms of effort and it can be a subtle change. Opting for a fall-inspired nail color instead of your usual at the salon is pretty easy, right? And it’s a lot more temporary and effortless than trying out a new haircut or creating a dramatic eye-makeup look.
For me, fall is the best time to really commit to some dark nail colors. The weather is cooler, the leaves are a pretty red/orange/yellow, everything feels cozier—all of this calls for some dramatic and deep hues. Am I wrong here?
