Fall’s Most Stylish Nail Polish + Ring Pairings Klaudia Tirico
One of our favorite things about fall is swapping out our neon and pastel polishes for dark, moody hues. This season, we're dipping our tips into precious metals, jewel tone berries and off-white shades just in time for sweater weather. And with such creamy formulas in luxe finishes, it was only right to pair fall's prettiest lacquers with complementing rings and cuffs. Here, we let our hands do the talking to get you inspired to pair your favorite polish with gorgeous baubles from designers like Catbird, Dannijo, Dogeared and more.

Black Cherry Klaudia Tirico
This is the nail polish shade we look forward to wearing after countless weeks of bright manicures. And it's especially perfect for October's ghoulish festivities, without being completely literal, of course. We love how the dark burgundy shade almost looks black in a certain light but still gives off a sexy and sophisticated vibe. Plus, it looks extra cool with a leather jacket and beanie. As for the jewels, the color itself is so rich, you don't have to go overboard. Simple gold stacking rings on three (or more) fingers will add some edge without taking away from the gorgeous hue.

Evergreens Klaudia Tirico
These verdant hues aren’t your average greens, so they can’t be paired with boring jewelry. We can’t help but think how awesome this color would look with military parkas, olive eyeshadow and bad ass hardware (you actually have to unscrew parts of these cuffs and ring by Miansai to put them on and take them off). Add a few stacking and knuckle rings, grab your coolest box clutch and you’ve got yourself one hell of a hand party.

Raspberry Klaudia Tirico
Keep summer alive with raspberry hues juicy enough to brighten up a crisp fall day. It's the perfect red-pink color for the transition between seasons, and it complements everything from a knit dress to jeans and a long sleeve T-shirt. The color is also begging to be worn to a cocktail party with gold baubles and precious stones. One or two of your fanciest rings balanced out by a few plain bands will do the trick.
On hand: NARS Paros Nail Polish ($20)

Indigo Klaudia Tirico
This jewel tone looks as expensive as The Heart of the Ocean so it’s only right to pair the shade with a complementing indigo stone. Keep the focus on one striking blue bauble placed front and center on your middle finger, and balance it out with a gold statement ring and a few stacking bands. A muted clutch is the perfect blank canvas to show off every detail of your look.

Gainsboro Gray Klaudia Tirico
White was such a popular shade for summer that we hate to see it go. If milky hues were your mani/pedi choice last season, you'll love these muted grays for fall. Pair your polish with stacks of tiny gunmetal and silver rings and a geometric cuff for a monochrome look that’s far from dull. The look will stand out against a patterned clutch, too. Plus, the tiny details in these rings – like the eye, pearl and elephant designs pictured here – are really fun without feeling too childish.
On hand: Formula X Nail Color in Extraordinary ($10.50)

Copper + Gold Chrome Klaudia Tirico
If you’re sick of your jewelry snagging your favorite oversized sweater, let your nail polish add a little shine to your ensemble instead. Of course, a few rose gold stacking rings and a minimalist cuff (that won’t get caught in your sleeves) can't hurt. We love the idea of mixing metals, and gold or copper nails paired with rose gold jewelry gives off that carefree, cool-girl vibe. Plus, this look can easily be worn well into holiday season if you’re over red nail polish for the holidays as much as we are. Bonus points if the stone on your bracelet matches the color of your clutch.
