5 Sexy Nail Lacquers to Rock This Fall

We are on the cusp of my favorite season, fall. The slight chill in the air has me dreaming of scarves, boots and leather moto jackets. As we transition our closets to fit the change in season, we must do the same with our nail lacquer.

It's time to say goodbye to the bright shades of summer and to opt for rich, sexy shades. Deep jewel tones, shades of gray, metallics and barely-there nudes are the season's hottest trends for nails and toes.

Here are five on-trend nail lacquers you'll want to rock this fall.

Dressed to Kilt - This sultry, saucy red is the perfect jewel tone to start fall with. If red is not your favorite shade, don't paint the whole nail. Opt for a fun half-moon or French style mani or pedi instead. $8.50, Essie.com

HIPPxRGB - I love this collaboration between Green Celebrity Nail Stylist Jenna Hipp and RGB Cosmetics Founder Gina Carney. Their award-winning collection has challenged what many consider nude nail lacquer to be. My favorite feature is that you can mix shades to customize for the perfect nude and coverage is buildable. Finally, nude shades for everyone! $18.00, RBGCosmetics.com
