That's not a complaint, pumpkins are great! They taste delicious and come in an array of beautiful orange hues that remind us of fall's beauty. If you're looking for an autumnal manicure to match your jack-o'-lantern, look no further than these 10 pumpkin nail polishes, in hues that will take you from cozy sweater weather to crisp fall date nights.
Keep Calm Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer by Butter London, $18, at Butter London.
Hope by JINsoon, $18, at Barneys New York
Accent Piece by China Glaze, $3.75 down from $7.50, at Ulta
J. Hannah Nail Polish in Nectar, $19, at J. Hannah
Yes, $19 is a lot to pay for a bottle of nail polish, but allow me to enable your splurge. I adore jewelry designer J. Hannah's nail polishes — they are uniquely desaturated tones that are inspired by nature, dreams, and literature; her colors remind me of the hues in a Georgia O'Keefe painting. This shade, Nectar, feels like a cozy, worn-in vintage sweater.
Donatella by Floss Gloss, $9, at Amazon
Floss Gloss is one of the best indie nail polish brands out there, in my not-so humble opinion. This woodsy color looks stunning on these talon claws, but would also work for us short-nailed divas. Pair with a flannel button-down and soak in the fall vibes with a glass of cider.
Particulière Le Vernis by Chanel, $28, at Orchard Mile
OK, no joke, I have been wearing Particulière for about … seven years now? It's one of Chanel's most popular nail polish colors for a reason: There is no dupe that can compare to the complexity and depth of this greige color, and I should know, I've tried them all. Every fall, I go through half a bottle of this shade; something about it is deeply soothing, like your favorite hot drink.
Miama Fever by KL Polish, $6, at KL Polish
This is another terra cotta hue, but I love the slightly red undertone, which gives serious date-night appeal. Wear this to dinner with your special someone, and watch their faces melt as you pick up a piece of cheese off the cheese board at dinner and eat it like that memorable scene from Hot Shots.
