Adios, neon. The newest nail polishes are taking a richer turn.

From rich reds and glittering gold to bright blues, there’s a luxe feel to the latest nail hues. So it’s no surprise that nails have become the red carpet’s newest accessory, from Jessica Biel’s glittery manicure to Rihanna’s red fingertips.

And it’s one red carpet trend that’s easy to replicate in real life — no designer friends or Hollywood bank account required: We’re bringing the season’s most festive nail shades right to your fingertips.

Classic reds continues to be the season’s big color, with stars matching their crimson nails to their red pouts for a coordinated look. But really, any polish on the red-to-pink spectrum works this season. Not just for clothes, Oxblood is this season’s polish darling, offering an elegant alternative to red with a slightly edgier feel, while magenta has a more feminine feel but still makes a bold statement.

For the more daring,  jades, teals, and blues are just as big for nails as they are for your wardrobe. Or for a more toned-down approach, grays and mauves are fall’s new nail neutral.

If you’re looking to mix it up but you want something a little more feminine than blue or green, try a close cousin: Deep purple or plum will look sophisticated yet fresh on your fingertips.

And to really give your fingertips a fashionable update, metallics are just as big for manicures as they are for dresses this holiday season.
