My Favorite Fall 2012 Nail Polish

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for new fall nail colors!

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some pink and neon, but I am ready for dark and stormy.


I love the look of a dark nail polish on a short, neatly manicured nail.


Here are some of my new favorites:


This entire collection by Zoya is so great!  It’s called the NYFW 2012 Designer Collection Set.

I very rarely love every color in a collection, but these colors are all just about perfect.  Especially the color Evvie and Natty (shown below). So great…

Another really fun collection for fall is OPI’s Germany collection…but most specifically is this color called Suzi and the Seven Dusselforfs.  My friend was wearing it the other night on her toes and it’s freaking stunning.  I think it’s my new favorite!

Next up is this crazy cool color by Dior.  Specifically it’s Dior Vernis 2012 FALL No. 615 Bengale.  I don’t usually spend a lot of money on nail polish, but this color might be worth the splurge.  If anyone knows of a similar color in a cheaper polish let me know!  It’s just totally unique!

Another pricier polish I have fallen in love with Storm Bird by Nars.

It just looks so pretty on…

Teal a great color that is crossing seasons.  But Fall’s teal is deeper, and gorgeous…Love this one called Stylenomics from Essie.

And finally, it’s always good to have a deep plum color to get you through fall and winter.  I love this one by Sonia Kashuk called Hocus Pocus.  And you can get it at Target.  Even better!

Now don’t worry all you sparkle girls out there.. there are lots of fun glitter options for fall colors too!

And nail art is still on trend for the fall/winter seasons, so design away!

    I have Zoya “Dea” which looks pretty similar to the Dior color above. It appears to be a little darker on their website, but on my hand looks pretty much the same. Thanks for this post, although this may get me into trouble as I already have TONS (over 50) nail polishes! So now I have to buy them in secret so my hubs doesn’t see haha :) (just to clarify so I don’t look like a crazy nail polish lady, many of my polishes are really old ~5+ years, so I shouldn’t really count them!)

      You aren’t alone. I have tons of nail polish but refuse to throw it all away and continue to buy new ones. There are so many pretty colors out there! Like these fall colors. Must go shopping for more soon. Maybe then, the old ones can get tossed, or so I keep telling myself.
