Every season, a selection of nail polish colors makes its way into the best, most popular, most used shades. And we’re counting them down for you this fall! Up this week: plum. The shade is regal, beautiful and attention grabbing–it can look violet, grape or even black in certain lights. And we’ve found the best takes on the color for you.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Uptempo Plum
It’s honestly difficult for us to express just how much we love this polish. The shade is a true deep plum, but what really makes it stand out is the micro-flecks of purple glitter baked into the formula. Plus, it really does what it says–this polish dried to a glossy finish on our nails in one minute flat, no top coat needed.

M.A.C Dark Angel
Creamy, rich and completely opaque in two coats. We’re loving this as a pedicure color for the cooler months.

Maybelline Plum Paradise
Paradise? It most certainly is, with this stunner on our nails. It’s a slightly lighter version of the Sally Hansen–gorgeous shimmer baked in, which really makes this one catch the light beautifully.

RGB has a knack for being completely on point with their nail polish names, and this one is no different. It’s a true deep, creamy, absolutely gorgeous plum. And it’s opaque in just one coat.
