We often talk about the transition period between summer and fall when it’s blazing hot outside but all you want is a spiced chai latte (hot, no more iced), a pumpkin candle, and a cozy cardigan wrapped around your body. As we enter August, this feeling begins, and while it’s likely the most prevalent with fashion (if I see one more pair of linen shorts, I’ll lose it), I feel it almost as much with my nail polish.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fiend for a bright, bold nail color every day of the week. I love bright colors through to my soul, but as my heart yearns for cool weather, Taylor Swift on repeat, and scary books and movies, the last thing I want to see on my fingers is a bright summery shade. So, there you have it: the in-between-season, transitional nail colors you’ll love all August and September long. Snag one of these polishes for your next at-home mani and you’ll be good to go the second you order your first PSL.
