The Fall 2018 Nail Polish Colors You Need, According To Jin Soon Choi


Every Fashion Week, there's tons of coverage dedicated to the biggest hair and makeup trends from the runway, and it's no wonder: If blunt-cut bangs, shaggy bobs, and bright orange lipstick are about to be everywhere in just a couple months' time, you probably want to find out ASAP. The top nail polish trends for fall 2018 , however, are far sneakier — and way more seasonal. Everyone had white toes this summer, and you can wager a guess that come fall, many more are planning to swap out their summer brights for something moodier. Right?

Well ... not exactly. Jin Soon Choi, celebrity manicurist and mastermind behind her eponymous nail care line, tells The Zoe Report that this year's fall polish trends are as unexpected as they are fresh.

"Pure black and white are my favorites for the season," says Choi, who just released her Monochrome Collection for fall. The three-piece set includes a true white, a true black, and silver-toned glitter polish, all sold for $18 each — so save your mattes for another season.

"[Each color] is ideal for making bold fashion statements and creating simple nail art," she notes, adding that "subtle, sophisticated glitter" can serve as its own fashion accessory if you want it to.

That doesn't mean that you can't experiment with color this fall, though: In keeping with 2018's obsession with untraditional hues (think: murky browns, bright oranges, mustard yellows), Choi redefines "hip" to include "deep turquoises and opaque nudes," she notes.

Absolute Black


With a rich, high-shine finish like this, you'll definitely want to wear this shade beyond Halloween.

Navy Blue



Plunge was inspired by the "colors of the rain forests of Puerto Rico and the exotic birds of Brazil," according to JINsoon's site. And if the shade looks like it's ripped from the runway, you're spot on — the brand teamed up with Flagpole to create it.




“I’ve used this color on numerous couture campaigns and editorial shoots," Choi said in a site description.


Absolute White


White polish is synonymous with summer — but why wouldn't you want to wear this one year-round? Its buttery finish is soft, but the gleaming stark-white tone makes it bold, not bridal.

Opaque Nudes



Summer might be over (wahhh), but that doesn't mean that you have to say goodbye to the beach. Sandbar, a light brown, is a dead ringer for the sandy shores that you were just perusing about a week ago.



This dusty rose is perfectly timely, as dusty rose (and blonde, and brown... ) hair colors are one of fall's top trends, too.



“This is one of the best classic colors,” Choi said in a site description. “I was inspired by old movies from the '50s.”


Absolute Glitz


Wear it alone, or add a layer of dimension to your new favorite solids from above. Either way, you'll flip over the outrageous amount of shimmer in this silvery pick.
