When you’re searching for perfect fall nail colors, you might be drawn to darks and neutrals. Don’t be fooled by the gray skies and browning leaves–autumn is a rich season for color. To be reminded of all the hues fall has to offer, I have to look no further than the pile of mini squash on my table that grew unbidden out of the compost heap this year! (That’s my kind of gardening–crops that grow themselves!) This post is inspired by their vibrance, so take a closer look at the colors below. All colors featured are free of the common nail polish toxins.
This canary color is from Mineral Essence brand, available at many natural food stores. You might think of yellow as quintessential for spring and summer, but what about autumn’s yellow leaves, golden sunsets and yellow-orange pumpkin pie? Yellow and gold tones are actually quite perfect for fall.
You can’t go wrong with a dusty red for fall. This is one of my favorite brands, Water Colors by Honeybee gardens. The vegan, cruelty-free polish is one of the least toxic available. It barely even smells like nail polish when you open the bottle.
