20 Autumn-Inspired Manis You’ll *Fall* in Love With

Just as the seasons (and the color of the leaves) change, so does our mani of the week. In place of bright, bold summery hues, a more subdued palette is calling our name. Make way for the return of mustard yellow, deep burgundy and pumpkin-y orange. As much as we hate to say goodbye to summer, fall is inevitable. Embrace it. Here are 20 nail designs to get you in the spirit.
