As we roll into October, the days are already shorter and the nights a bit cooler. You know what that means: It's time for the fall nail polish collections to drop!

Getting sick to death of neons and soft nudes? If so, you are going to love fall. There are a lot of rich jewel tones, the now-ubiquitous metallics, and even some fun new fancy top coats (think: crocodile effect). Just to make sure you know all your options, we've pulled together a guide to the best collections we've seen for fall so far.

A few early trends we've noticed while digging through all our bottles? Wine, eggplant, oxblood–no matter what you call it, you better have a few in your nail arsenal this season. And yes, grey is everywhere. Nail polish designers have gleefully embraced 50 Shades of Grey just like everyone else has. And rusty, earthy shimmers are also on our radar this season. Pastels and neons? Nowhere to be found.
