My Favorite Fall Nail Polish Colors

Everything about fall is great, and that includes the nail polish options. While I love the bright polish colors you get away with during the summer, there's something super cozy about a nice, deep red on your fingernails while your hands are wrapped around a pumpkin spice latte. Fall colors are warm and inviting and perfect.
"Cynthia" is my absolute favorite blue polish. I hate polish colors that are so dark they look black in most lighting (especially since I have such fair skin in the fall/winter), and this is perfect. I love how it's kinda funky because it's blue, but it's dark and muted enough that it could still be semi-professional.
"Charmed, I'm Sure" is perfect... it reminds me of "Lincoln Park After Dark" by OPI, but way better because it's not so dark that it looks black. The color is deep and gorgeous... it's almost an eggplant color. 

I just bought "Cashmere Bathrobe" at Target last week, and I love it. It's a really nice dark gray that has a microglitter in it that makes it super shiny, and just a little bit more fancy. And you guys know how I love being fancy.
Honestly, I only wear "Artsy Crafty" one once or twice a year, but I LOVE it. Is "sassy green" a thing? Because that's how I feel when I wear it. It's a bit whimsical, but it really compliments all the beige/neutral colored clothing I wear during the fall. 
"I Knead Sour Dough" is a dusty rose that has a bit of shimmer to it. I like to wear it when I want a classic red/pink look, but I want a little bit MORE. You know what I mean?
"Downtown Brown" is what I think of when I think of a classic fall polish. It's a warm reddish brown that is super classic. It's oxblood-ish, but I bought it before oxblood was A Thing, so it's probably not an exact match. Still, it's one of my fall standbys.
"Warm and Fozzie" is my favorite nail polish color of all time, but man, do we have a history. I picked it up at Ulta one day right after the it had come out (as part of the 2011 Muppets collection) and then put it back. Right after, it exploded in popularity, and when I went back to buy it, it was gone. I ended up having my best friend buy me a bottle in Baltimore, and she mailed it down to me. It's such a cool color! It has hints of bronze, gold, pink, and purple. It sounds crazy, but trust me, it works. (See one of Scrangie's swatches here.) It's the color I put on my nails every Thanksgiving.
This might be my favorite polish that came from any of the Fall 2013 collections, because it's so transitional. It's a shimmery, rosy gold foil that looks great on any skin tone. It goes on in two thin coats, it's super shiny, and it dries super fast. And the best part? It's less than five bucks! You should probably go to Target and scoop this one up immediately.
