Despite the fact that summer is still in full swing in the South much longer than other parts of the country — we can't help but get excited for all of the fall beauty trends coming our way. Namely, spanking-new nail colors. As much as we love summer's always-popular nail shades, we're just as partial to their moodier counterparts that we see during the autumn.
September is for sure a month of a lot of change typically from new routines, shifting weather, and more, but it also is full of abundance and it is still far from winter and the coldest parts of fall. I always anxiously await this month for the quiet it brings to the town we live in. Don’t get me wrong, summer is a beautiful and precious thing, but it is busy and just a process of keeping your head above water in many areas of life, but September rolls in and it’s like the lowering clouds slow us down and bring us back to center.
Since August and September mark the transition time between Summer and Fall, we're trying to bridge the beauty gap by picking the best in-between nail shades to start seeing some Autumn color without going full-on fall.
The craziness of summer and all the demands we find in our lives these last few months are fading now in a way that if you are like me are fondly welcomed. For the autumnal trendsetters, try one of these rich and vibrant shades of purple, blue, and green. For those wishing to hold onto summer just a bit longer, go brighter with shades of orange, creamy nude, metallic, and even a two-toned surprise.
Here are 8 trendy, transitional nail colors to take you from Summer to Fall. I hope you find the beauty of September by adding these pretty colors to your manicure!
Though I love the Summer there is something sweet about late Summer that I always look forward to. Around these parts the tourist season slows down, the streets become quieter, things begin to return to normal, and everything feels a little more settled. There is a sweetness that is almost like a calm before the storm of Winter that ushers in Fall. The colors begin to shift in the water and on the hills and the smells begin to feel crisper and cooler.
The one color I always see that becomes so distinct in this transition is this turquoise green. The water gravitates to this tone and it contrasts with the turning leaves that begin to happen in late September. It is one of my favorite colors especially as this time of the year begins to come sweeping in. So, you must paint the turquoise shade on your nails this month!
I know we are supposed to put white away this time of year, but I think it is bull. White is an all time classic color. It contrasts against every type of outfit we wear in the Autumn. I love a white manicure because of how fresh it feels amongst the leaves and colors this time of year.

We are saving navy blue for later colder months. Transition to fall with the bright royal blue shade instead.
Who says you can’t rock pink all year long? This dusty hue of pink color is like a toned-down version of pastel pink that flatters many skin tones.
