Autumn is undoubtedly the season of the redhead.
Our surroundings complement our coloring, from bright red leaves to earlier, but still golden, sunsets.
One of my favorite ways to make the transition from summer to fall is through changing up what’s on my nails. I move my sundresses and bright pink polishes to the backs of my closet and cabinet, and I unpack my thick sweaters and classic hues in the form of nail polish. You’ll need the perfect ‘redhead friendly’ color for your apple picking photo op, no?
Here are my 7 favorite nail polishes that every redhead should rock this fall:
1. Londontown ‘Windsor Garden’
If you’re a H2BAR Box subscriber, you received this full size nail polish in your September beauty box! It’s the perfect shade for Redhead Season. Stand out (even more) with this fiery orange with a hint of shimmer that’s always in fashion.
2. OPI ‘Steel Waters Run Deep’ Infinite Shine
This gray color goes with everything! It’s equal parts classy and unique. It looks great with the fall version of the little black dress for its sophisticated nature, and looks just as cute with a knit sweater on the orchard.
3. OPI ‘Never Give Up!’ Infinite Shine
Another ‘redhead friendly’ polish from OPI because one application lasts and is enough to show the color as its meant to look. This shade is warm and will bring out the freckles that you’re likely still donning from your days on the beach. This, too, will match much of your fall wardrobe. I know it looks like a simple color, but give it a try!
4. Essie ‘Summit of Style’
Do you have a special event to attend this season? Look no further than this incredible polish to pair with your upscale attire. This is a rose gold, glitter polish that you will have no problem rocking with your red hair. It was practically made for you! Be sure to use a clear polish over this to make the glitter stay and make the color pop.
5. Dior Vernis Nail Polish in ‘Rouge 999’
This is the red nail polish to end all red nail polishes. The shade is bright and classic and will look gorgeous with your red hair – and a great red lipstick!
6. Essie ‘Fall in Line’
This brand is known for its long-lasting wear and fun colors. This color, perfectly named for the season, is going to make your nails stand out. It’s likely different from what would normally be your go-to nail color, but you’ll be thrilled once you take the leap. Your nails will look like jade stone… who doesn’t want to be donned in gems?! Plus, we all know that green is a fabulous color on redheads.
7. Lauren B ‘Beauty House Of Blues’
Almost black and just as edgy. This midnight navy blue is a perfect color for those redheads looking to go a little dark this season.
Rock it like a Redhead!
