When September rolls around every year, I am in denial about saying goodbye to summer without fail. Yes, even in 2020 when we haven't really had the most "normal" summer. I usually refuse to wear jeans, pants, tights, and other leg-covering materials until I find myself shivering away. And I sparingly wear boots, flats, and closed-toe shoes, trying to get the most out of what's left of sandal season. So yeah, you can say I have a hard time letting go of things.
But because I am still pushing the limits of my sandal wearing until October, I have one concession for fall: I like to choose autumn-inspired hues for my pedicures. You know, the dark, moody, sexy colors of cooler months. And hey, even if you've been wearing boots, you don't have to feel left out. You can still treat those toes of yours to a fall pedi. Make it a part of your self-care routine.
Whether you're all in with fall or are having trouble like me, I've gathered some of the best fall pedicure color ideas and nail polishes to get the look.
I love the color palette of autumn: reds, oranges, and yellows reminiscent of fallen leaves. Just looking at those hues brings vibes of warmth and coziness. So if you're leaning toward those in your wardrobe and décor this season, why not experiment with them on your toes?
Of course, gray is another cool-weather pedicure staple. It strikes the right balance of the moodiness and coolness of the season. And the shades run the spectrum from darker gray to a more cloudy version.
Since there aren't any hard-and-fast rules regarding which colors you can wear in the summer and which ones you can wear in the fall, it's safe to say that nude hues know no season. So if you're having a hard time transitioning to fall, you can start with a beige-like shade.
