The sheer milky manicure has not run its course yet, and we’re not mad about it. This simple, soft, clean nail trend will be the perfect compliment to your arsenal of cable-knit sweaters.

Rich and earthy tones take center stage in 2023. Metallic finishes in gold bring a touch of glamour to your nails, perfect for special occasions. Deep cherry, reminiscent of red wine, exudes sophistication and warmth, while warm terracotta captures the essence of falling leaves. For those who prefer subtler shades, muted pastels like mauve and dusty blue add a touch of elegance to your fall look.

In addition to choosing the best fall nail polish color, don’t forget about nailcare. As the weather gets colder, use sundays studio’s healing and hydrating cuticle serums and bergamot hand cream. Your hands and nails will thank you for it!
