Summer was all about bright nail polish, from sunny yellow to baby blue, but autumn is bringing us a toned-down colour palette. This turn towards muted neutrals might feel unexpectedly soft, but it's the opposite of vanilla: The look is surprisingly nuanced, with shades like Scottish-highland moss, terracotta beige, and a jewel-toned spin on your classic jet black.
For mid-November, shades of brown are edging out the rest, making shiny leather and pale brown suede the new It neutrals. Ahead, find the best brown polishes ever created — from glazed espresso and faded khaki to matte chocolate and copper-plated — to cop the budding colour trend at home.
