For many girls, new fashions are the best part of fall. Out with the pastels and sandals of summer and in with new colors, boots, and cozy sweaters. However, living on a college campus can make it hard to keep up with trends, especially because of busy schedules and the masses of students in sweatpants. No matter the circumstances it is still possible to keep up with fall fashion with nail colors in the season’s hottest hues. Using these nail polishes is a small detail that makes a big statement.
1. Emerald Green
Emerald green is 2013’s Pantone Color of the Year, making it one of the most stylish shades to grace your nails. It looks great with burnt orange and gold, two popular colors this season. If you prefer an edgier look, this is a great variation from black and gray.

2. Oxblood Red
If you are looking for an understated yet dramatic look, oxblood red is the way to go. Oxblood is reminiscent of many seasonal things, like leaves changing colors and cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving. This color is perfect to achieve the look of the rich jewel tones that are on trend this fall and is an alternative from the usual bright red found in nail salons everywhere.

You heard it here first: Navy is the new black. It is a timeless, elegant color that adds sophistication to any look, not to mention it complements silver and gold jewelry. Since navy is so popular in clothing right now as well, pair a matching sweater with the polish for a chic monochromatic look.
