What’s not to fall in love with the fall? We heard crickets, because autumn reigns supreme in the season hierarchy. Just off the tip of the leaf, fall brings beautiful foliage, near-perfect temps, no more bikini body worries, wardrobes get cozy, autumnal makeup looks go into effect – even nails get a latte of attention.

While summer has been all about bright nail shades, autumn calls for something on the bold side: black, dark nudes, deep plums, and even glam rock nails. We’ve compiled this list to bring you the best nail polish colors for fall 2022 that flatter every skin tone. Hint: It’s not just the classic berry and burgundy hues!

Switching from Toxic to Non-Toxic Polish This Fall

The allure of a fresh manicure is undeniable, but the hidden cost of traditional nail polishes is often overlooked. Many conventional nail polishes contain chemicals like Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate, and Formaldehyde, which, while delivering vibrant colors and durable wear, can pose significant health risks.

Understanding the Risks of Traditional Nail Polish Ingredients

Toluene: Used to create a smooth application and finish, this chemical can affect the central nervous system and cause reproductive harm.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP): This plasticizer makes nail polish flexible, but it’s linked to reproductive issues and has been banned in children’s toys in many countries.

Formaldehyde: A hardening agent, it’s known for its preservative qualities but is a known carcinogen that can also trigger allergic reactions.

Repeated or prolonged exposure to these chemicals can lead to chronic health issues, making it imperative for health-conscious consumers to seek safer alternatives.

In response to the growing awareness of these health concerns, there has been a shift towards “Free” nail polishes. These formulas are denoted by the number of harmful chemicals they are free from, such as “5-Free” or “10-Free”. This movement has revolutionized the beauty industry, encouraging brands to develop products that are safer for both consumers and the environment.

At 100% PURE, we believe in the utmost safety and quality in our products. Our 20-Free label signifies that our vegan, cruelty-free nail polish shades are formulated without the 20 common toxins found in conventional nail polishes. This commitment ensures that each shade we offer is not only stunning and chip-resistant but also aligns with the highest standards of health and wellness.

Our comprehensive 20-Free list includes harmful chemicals like:

  1. Formaldehyde
  2. Toluene
  3. Camphor
  4. Formaldehyde Resin
  5. Xylene
  6. Parabens
  7. Fragrance
  8. Phthalates
  9. Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)
  10. Ethyl Tosylamide
  11. Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP)
  12. Animal Ingredients
  13. Methylisothiazolinone (MIT)
  14. Hydroquinone Monomethyl Ether (MEHQ)
  15. Gluten
  16. Palm Oil
  17. Sulfates
  18. Bisphenol-A
  19. Acetone
  20. Nonylphenol Ethoxylate

By eliminating these substances, our polishes promise a safer, more sustainable manicure or pedicure experience. With 100% PURE, customers don’t have to compromise on quality or safety; they can enjoy professional-looking results at home, knowing they are choosing a product that’s kinder to their body and the environment.

The Top Nail Polish Colors for Fall

We can feel it in the air: the leaves are changing, and the temperature is getting chilly. As you’re starting to gear up for the boot-and-scarf season, bright eyeshadows and lip colors are giving way to autumnal makeup looks. Somehow the fall makeover doesn’t seem truly a-maize-ing without a nail polish refresh.

When we think of the best nail polish colors for fall, we think of the classic shades like burgundy, deep nude, and brown. While these hues are berry flattering for any skin type, sometimes we’d like a nail refresh to pumpkin-spice-things up a bit.

Without further ado, read on to find out the best nail polish colors for fall 2022 and where you can get them.

Burgundy Nail Polish
Whether it’s the deep reds intertwined in the fall foliage or the seductive dark red lipsticks that pair so well with a cozy scarf, the color burgundy is a fall force to be reckoned with. Think, hues of merlot and maroon, the deep shade is a must-have color for your nails for fall.

100% PURE Elderberry Nail Polish
While it might not be a natural antidote as an immune booster during the cooler ‘flu’ months, our shade of Elderberry polish, which is an opaque, deep blackberry red, does boost the beauty of your nails. A luscious, blackened purple full of depth and mystery, the hue can appear black or very dark purple according to the light.

100% PURE Over the Maroon Nail Polish
Elegant wine and berry shades are always a fall favorite. Whether you love dinner parties or want your nail color to reflect a strong sense of elegance while you sip wine, this deep, rich burgundy shade is a go-to for those who love a hint of glamor. You can say we’re over the ma-moon!

Plum Nail Polish
As we know, trends tend to be cyclical, which explains why plum nail polish was all the rage on autumn-themed Pinterests in 2015, and it’s making a huge comeback for fall of 2022. Plum has gone far beyond the vampy, gothic realm to nowadays’ spectrum of pink plum, mauve plum, berry-red plum, and even blackened plum, meaning that there’s an option for everyone.

100% PURE Blackberry Woods Nail Polish
Liven up any dreary fall skies with cheerful vibes and this crisp walk in the woods for your nails. This opaque, deep berry-purple shade embodies the decadent, colorful hues of autumn plus the ever-popular foliage and jewel-tone shades of the season.

Nude Nail Polish
Not to be taken lightly, the universal ‘nude’ trend has stuck around for good reason. And we don’t mean nude as in that redundant, stale beige-ish shade. Nude can mean different variations of beige, pink, or brown; the beautiful thing about going nude is that you can cater it to any skin tone.

100% PURE Dune Try Me Nail Polish
Can you ever go wrong with going nude (i.e. the color)? We think not. Nudes are – you heard it here first – always the answer for complementing fall makeup and fall fashion. Not feeling the reds, pinks, or glitter? This opaque, dusty-pink shade is classy, reliable, and can be played up for a professional or glam look.

NOTE: All our nail formulas are 20-free natural, vegan, cruelty-free nail polishes made without the 20 common toxins found in conventional formulas.

Navy Nail Polish
It’s been said that blue is the most soothing color, which makes us fan favorites of navy being a top nail polish in 2022. Though autumn is a good time to fall back and relax before the big holiday rush, navy instills in us calmness, confidence, and connection, while reminding us to stay grounded.

Kure Bazaar Navy Natural Nail Polish
If you’re heading to a party, all you need is the best blue nail polish to add an extra oomph to your look – something this shade doesn’t disappoint on. This deep navy hue complements most skin tones, and is what you need to slay the look. This long-lasting formula glides on smoothly and delivers a glossy shine to nails, providing the finishing touches to your fall party-ready look.

How to Apply 100% PURE Nail Polishes

Whether you’re relaxing indoors or waiting for an apple pie to bake, the cozy season is the perfect time to try and master your manicure. We’re here to help! Read on for a few easy steps to apply our polish and be sure to check out our Zer0 Nail Polish for more fabulous fall choices!

Step #1: Prime Nails
Start with one thin layer of our Horsetail Base Coat Polish for stronger nails, or the Ridge Filler Base for a smoother application and an even base while priming nails for a flawless manicure finish; allow to dry.

Step #2. Shake & Apply Polish
Shake polish thoroughly before applying to ensure even color distribution. Next apply one thin layer of your 20-Free Nail Polish. Let this layer thoroughly dry, then apply a second coat for more opaque or intense color.

PRO TIP: Two coats will usually be the perfect opacity. Don’t be tempted to speed up the drying process with a hair dryer. The heat will actually hinder the setting process.

Step #3: Apply Top Coat
Finish with our Glass Top Coat for a chip-free, high-gloss finish. Wait about 10-15 minutes for nails to completely dry before moving to the next step.

Step #4: Protect Nails & Hands
For the full effect (glossy nails and healthy-looking hands), dab on a bit of Nail & Cuticle Oil to soothe dry cuticles and help to strengthen brittle nails. Massage into nail beds. Once that’s absorbed, apply some Hand Buttercream for soft, supple skin and the true manicure experience.

We know when the temps start to drop, our hands are frequently tucked inside jackets or jogging pants. But having color on your fingertips is an instant mood-booster during the fall months – if pumpkin spice doesn’t entice or excite– and can actually help keep your nails healthy.

Even if your fall checklist is filled to the max, including an at-home mani with the top nail polish colors to wear this fall 2022 can create a stylish and modern look in the comfort of your own home to last ‘till the winter months.

Frequently Asked Questions About Non Toxic Nail Polish

How do non-toxic nail polishes compare in durability to traditional nail polishes?

Non-toxic nail polishes have made significant advancements in durability, closely matching or even surpassing the longevity of traditional nail polishes. Innovations in formulation mean that many non-toxic options now offer long-lasting wear, chip resistance, and a glossy finish comparable to their conventional counterparts. However, the exact durability can vary between brands and formulations, so it might take some experimentation to find the one that works best for you.

What are the main benefits of switching to non-toxic nail polish this fall?

Switching to non-toxic nail polish offers several benefits:

  • Healthier Ingredients: Reduced exposure to harmful chemicals like Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP, which can cause health issues.
  • Better for Nail Health: Non-toxic polishes are often more breathable, leading to healthier nails in the long run.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Many non-toxic polishes are eco-friendlier, with sustainable packaging and vegan formulas.
  • Safe for Everyone: Safer for pregnant women, children, and people with chemical sensitivities.
  • Cruelty-Free: Many non-toxic brands prioritize ethical practices, including being cruelty-free and vegan.

How do I ensure that the nail polish I’m buying is genuinely non-toxic?

To ensure a nail polish is genuinely non-toxic, look for labels like “5-Free,” “10-Free,” or “20-Free,” which indicate the absence of specific toxic chemicals. Also, read ingredient lists, research brands for their credibility in producing non-toxic cosmetics, and look for certifications from reputable organizations. Be wary of vague claims like “natural” or “organic” without specific information.

How do non-toxic nail polish formulas affect nail health in the long run?

Non-toxic nail polishes are generally gentler on the nails. They allow for more breathability and reduce the risk of nail discoloration, brittleness, and damage caused by harsh chemicals found in traditional polishes. Regular use of non-toxic formulas can lead to improved nail health, strength, and growth over time.

How does the application and removal process of non-toxic nail polishes compare with conventional ones?

Application: Non-toxic nail polishes often apply just as smoothly as traditional ones. Some formulas might require an additional coat for opaque coverage, but this varies by brand.

Removal: Non-toxic nail polishes can usually be removed with regular nail polish removers, although opting for acetone-free removers is recommended to maintain the ethos of using non-toxic products. Some non-toxic polishes might require a bit more time or effort to remove, depending on the formula.

Overall, the transition to non-toxic nail care is a simple yet impactful step towards a healthier, more environmentally conscious beauty routine.
