Few things are as customizable-to-your-mood and changeable as nail color. When you get tired of one polish, you can just use remover and move on to the next. And with new shades coming out for fall, it’s time to get your manicure game on.

Not sure what color to choose? Let your skin tone be your guide. Because while you can of course rock any shade, regardless of your complexion, certain hues are especially complementary to certain skin tones, says Angel Williams, a celebrity manicurist and nail care expert.

One neat tip from Williams: To find your skin tone, look at the inside of your wrist. If you see blue veins, you have a cool undertone; if your veins are green, you have a warm undertone.

“People are taking more risks with their nail color,” adds Katherine Dorn, a makeup artist from Pierre Michel salon. What’s most important is that you’re sporting a shade that you feel comfortable with, she adds. And if you tend not to be adventurous with your makeup or hair, you can be with your nails. Because, hey, if you don’t like it, all you have to do is break out the nail polish remover and start over.

But we’re sure that you’ll like these six just-launched shades for fall 2017. We’ve included neutrals and berries, greens and metallics in the mix. Basically, anything you could ever want. They’re perfect for a fall pedicure for those peep-toe booties and will make your hands totally pop.

Essie Mix Taupe
Go for neutrals, advises Williams. Sheer shades of pink let light in, boosting brightness and complimenting blue undertones in light skin. “Choosing a creamier pink helps with covering up imperfections,” she adds. One option is Essie Mix Taupe, a cool tone pink that’s perfect for fingers.

Opt for a berry color for fair skin tones. “Most all shades of berry act as a pop of color, glamour and versatility to this complexion,” says Williams. She likes Essie Knee-High Life, which has purple undertones. Slick this one onto fingers and toes for a fun pop of color.

A coral, orange, or bright pink work especially well for you, says Dorn. New to OPI’s Iceland collection is I’ll Have a Gin & Tectonic, a coral pink shade in a gel-like formula that’s made to stick around sans all that annoying chipping. (Up to 11 days.) What’s more, you can count this as a wear-it-everyday shade—you’ll never get sick of it.

Buy it: $12.50, amazon.com

Opt for warmer colors in a brighter shade to warm up your complexion, advises Williams. (Make sure you avoid colors that look too close to your skin tone, as those will wash you out.) A classic brick red will look absolutely vibrant. The rather vivid terra cotta color of JINsoon Idyll is perfect.

Metallics are beautiful on darker skin tones, says Dorn. Dior Vernis Gel Shine and Long Wear Nail Laquer in 612 Metallics is gorgeous. Formulated with special pigments, it gives off super shine. Though you can pull off any super bright shade, metallics tend to read more on the neutral side, ideal if you want to tone things down. (But still look great.)

Now’s the time to have fun with your nail shade. Williams loves a dark green. “Darker colors look great on deeper skin,” she says, because it warms your complexion. Hues with a metallic shine will enhance the fun and classic vibe. Her pick: Marc Jacobs Jealous Glaze, described as the green of a glistening watermelon rind.
