f/w '16. nail. colors.

When the weather turns frightful, there’s nothing like a little pop of color via your nails to inject major oomph into your fall/winter wardrobe. Throw in the upcoming holidays and a dazzling mani is practically non-negotiable. If you’ve already got a case of the winter blues (I know it’s not winter yet, but my scratchy throat and runny nose seem to be saying otherwise!), then some freshly manicured tips could be just what the doctor ordered. Ahead, I’ve compiled a roundup of my favorite nail colors of the moment.
1. Burberry Beauty Gold Shimmer No.452 // The perfect holiday shimmer that also doubles for a signature accent nail. To be worn solo or teamed with any of the other colors included in this post. 
2. JINsoon Nail Polish in Ube // A pretty lavender hue to complement all your cream-colored fisherman sweaters, Breton stripes and cherry red toppers. Obsessed would be an understatement.  
3. Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish in Smoke Gets in Your Eyes // In lieu of stark black, I swear by a deep blue that’s equal parts minimalist and understated chic. Plus, this storm-blue hue will pair exquisitely with all the neutrals in your winter wardrobe. 
4. Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish in Laurel Canyon Lover // Not a fan of classic Revlon red? Try this rich burgundy hue for the holiday season (and beyond). Come Valentine’s Day, a glittery accent nail will be obligatory. 
5. Essie Nail Polish in Satin Sister // My pick from Essie’s winter collection? That would be “satin sister,” which Essie has described as a “sleek ebony peacock blue.” Take note: This after hours-approved jewel tone was made to be worn for winter formals/galas/soirees, especially when accompanied by a sequined gown or a velvet fit-and-flare dress. But, don’t be mistaken, it’s a shoo-in for the daytime too.  
6. Yves Saint Laurent Beauty La Laque Nail Polish in Jaune Babouche 62 // Perhaps more autumnal than wintry, there’s no time like RN to test-drive this sunny goldenrod color. It calls to mind plaid blanket scarves, suede ankle booties and pumpkin spice-everything — basically ALL the fall things.
