Best Dark Blue: Ella + Mila Desire Collection Nail Polish in Bite Me

There's so much to appreciate about Ella + Mila's nail polish collection. Not only do we love the diverse selection, we also love that they are all about vegan and cruelty-free products. This "Bite Me" color in their Desire Collection is described as a vampy violet, but customers have noted that it looks more like a midnight blue. Either way, we are here for the mysterious, edgy vibes of this color. And as if we needed more reasons to rave about them, they also go one step further and ensure that their products don't contain parabens, phtalates, talc and gluten. ($11.39; amazon.com)

Best Plum: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte Nail Color in Burnished Wine

In the fall, we like to switch from sipping rosé to red wine, so why not do the same for our nail polish shades? The deep, slightly metallic plum color of Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Matte in "Burnished Wine" gives us a delicious buzz, especially since each coat dries in about 60 seconds. The formula has the base and top coat built in so you can skip those extra steps when you're in a rush to dash to a last-minute date or party invite. ($3.99; target.com)

Best Iridescent: OPI Designer Series Nail Lacquer in Charcoal

This iridescent color from OPI exudes an air of mystery with its smoky violet and charcoal blue gradient. This is great for times where you've got a more subtle color palate in your wardrobe, but you want your nails to pop just a tiny bit as your accessory. You should apply at least two coats to achieve an opaque iridescent sheen. The polish has a matte finish, but if you want a glossier look, just add a shiny top coat. ($12.50; amazon.com)

Best Teal: Base Coat Nail Polish in Satellite

When you can't decide whether you love green or blue more, teal is the best compromise. It may even be a superior shade in our opinion. There's so much more depth and complexity to teal, and this Base Coat polish in "Satellite" adds another layer with its dose of high intensity sparkle. And because the formulas are hand poured, sometimes the colors vary, making each unique. We also love that these vegan, cruelty-free polishes are plant-based and free of toxic chemicals like parabens, sulfates, camphor and formaldehyde. ($18; nordstrom.com)

Best Gray: Ella + Mila Elite Collection Nail Polish in On the Runway

When it comes to neutrals, gray is one of our favorites. This Ella + Mila shade called "On the Runway" embodies a cool elegance. It's understated with a slight edge. A gray polish is also another great backdrop choice for haunting nail designs. Consider a design from the dark side: ghosts, pointy hats and bats, perhaps?

Like the tree leaves change color from summer into the fall, this Cirque Colors Thermal Temperature Nail Polish also changes color with body heat. We are especially seduced by the Rothko Red shade, which turns a dark burgundy when cold and a bright scarlet when warm. It's like an abstract painting on your fingers that's constantly in flux.
