Top 5 Affordable Nail Polishes for Fall

Share Tweet Pin

Yep, it's that time of year again. Goodbye to the hot pinks, bright blues and neon greens. Hello to the sultry purples, burnt oranges and mellow nudes. Since we're closing out summer and coming into fall, our nails need a change, too!

If you're anything like me, you find it hard to pay $15 to $20 for a bottle of polish. While yes, I like a good polish and believe that many of those pricey brands really do work better, I go through so much nail polish that I would go broke! So anyways... many of the polishes that I have listed below for fall are below the $10 price point. Of course you've always got to splurge a bit on one or two. If you're someone who doesn't like a certain brand, I'll also list similar colors in other brands just for you! 


Nicole By OPI Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer Exclusive Purple Yourself Together

You can never go wrong with a calm purple shimmer. Fall is the perfect time to shift from summers bright purples to a more pale, laid-back shade.

Similar Shades:

Purple Pleaser - ELF

Orchid - Revlon


Essie Nail Color, Chubby Cheeks

Doesn't this just remind you of the leaves falling from the trees? If this shade doesn't scream fall, nothing will!

Similar Shades:

Life Preserver - China Glaze

Evening Glow - Sally Hansen


OPI Nail Lacquer, Samoan Sand

While nude polishes work any time of the year, they really stand out fall and winter. No....not all fall shades have to be the color of leaves!

Similar Shades:

Pure Porcelain - Orly

Sugar Coat - Wet n Wild MegaLast 


You can't forget your deep, earthy reddish-browns! This is one of my favorite fall colors as it a color that you don't see wore often.

Similar Shades:

KleanColor - Mud Pie Sparkle

Pumpkin Spice - Sally Hansen


Last but not least, we need our 'night out on the town' fall color. Why not reach for the gray shimmer! Check it out, even the name fits! Plus, at this price point, you can't go wrong!

Similar Shades:

Maybelline Color Show - Pedal to the Metal

Sinful Colors Color, Tantalize


Pretty awesome colors, right? I think so. I'm not at all excited for summer to end, but I sure am excited to start using these nail lacquers!
