Playing with your nail color is an easy (and pretty affordable) way to switch up your look every week or two (or day or two if you’ve got the time & energy). It’s also an instant mood booster in my opinion — and who couldn’t use one of those these days?

I usually go for the trusty & long-lasting Shellac gel manicure at my local nail salon, but due to restrictions & social distancing measures, lately I’ve just been painting my nails myself and — really — practice makes perfect. (Just have some nail polish remover handy if it’s your first shot on your own. This Cutex one is the best I’ve ever tried.)

Rainbow Nails: Fun At-Home Manicures In Fall & Winter Colors

Here I’ve rounded up the top five nail polish colors for both the fall and winter each. Feel free to go all in on one of your fave colors or give every nail their own special je ne sais quoi. I personally love the idea of an autumnal or wintry “rainbow” of sorts on each hand — especially following the two color palettes below. They’ve both got a good mix of colors that look juuuuust right next to each other, and are a little bit more subtle than your regular ROYGBIV-colored rainbow mani.

Ok, this palette is really good. Orange is my all-time fave (no matter the season) and I’ve been dipping my toes (or nails, I guess I should say) into some fun browns and really loving the results. Yes, “fun” browns really do exist (see Totally Toffee by Revlon below). The other colors are oh so fall, too.

These five colors would look SO cool together for that wintry-rainbow kind of look that I’ve been talking about. My favorites are the cool-toned reds (because duh, holidays) and the icy silver-blues with a tiny bit of shimmer in them. It’s like a little winter wonderland on your pinkies. How sweet.
