Fall means pumpkins, apple-cider donuts, leaf peepers, and cozy sweaters. It also means fall manicures, which are often richer, darker, and a bit more glamorous than their summer counterparts. Here are my most coveted fall polishes-get your "Pin It" button-pressing fingers ready.

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Cleopatra in New York. This gold-studded black is limited-edition, so I suggest you order yourself a bottle stat. Glittery polish is huge for fall, and this mix of fine and supersized glitter flecks suspended in sheer black polish is especially striking. (Because the it's on the sheer side, we suggest layering it over a coat of regular black polish for a richer finish.)

Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Le Smoking. This is one heck of a hot red polish. It's a blue-based cherry with a hint of fuchsia that makes it fresh and youthful.

Chanel Le Vernis in Frenzy. Looking for something a little more neutral? This fall, switch up your basic nude for a pale gray. This cool cement shade doesn't have that yellowish tinge that makes fingers look dead or dirty-rather, it looks as pretty and delicate as a cashmere sweater.

Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Lacquer in Denim Dash. This denim color is casual, stylish, and cool-just like a good pair of jeans.

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture in Bronze Aztec. Tinged with army green, this bronze looks like nothing I'd ever swipe across my cheekbones, but I'll gladly paint it on fingers and toes over the next few months.

Nars Andy Warhol Nail Polish in Superstar. The vivid teal color miraculously looks great on all nail lengths: It won't look juvenile on short nails or tacky on long ones.
