If summer is the Elle Woods of nail-polish colors — bright, fun, the perfect accoutrement to holding fuzzy pink pens — then Autumn is the Rachel Green. It's simple, understated, and cool as hell . . . and definitely more likely to travel to Central Perk than Harvard Law School for a man. (Winter is Wednesday Addams, if you were curious, for obvious reasons.)

Over the last few months, we've seen the return of minimalist beauty, which is perfectly up Rachel (and everyone else's, it seems) alley. The upcoming Autumn season's biggest nail-polish trends are definitely sticking to that theme.

"While we love nail art, this Autumn we're seeing a shift to more muted looks and sophisticated solids," Michelle Nguyen, founder of Paris Lash Academy, tells POPSUGAR. If you aren't a fan of keeping things simple and instead like your nails to be a little more out-of-the-box and in-your-face, not to worry. There are plenty of maximalist options to keep on your radar over the coming months.

Ahead, we break down the best Autumn nail colors you're about to see everywhere. Keep scrolling to peep our predictions and shop the products needed to make your nails the envy of everyone in the room.
