Sherman Ave Guide: Fall Nail Colors
Didn’t get into A&O after applying for the third consecutive year? Finally starting to think improv might just not be for you? Your crush from last spring still thinks you’re a great friend? Don’t sweat it—paint it! Instead of drowning in rejection culture, dip a toe or finger nail into the deep fall tones of Repeated Red-jection, and throw a Macintosh middle finger up to everyone who doesn’t want you.
Orange You Glad Your Social Anxiety’s Still Here?
Halloweekend is looming and you still have no costume ideas, let alone any plans. Bite your nails no longer! Throw on two coats of this stunning orange, and you wouldn’t dare! It might look like pumpkin, but nail polish actually tastes horrible! Don’t eat the nail polish.
Nyquil I Ever Not Be Sick?
The answer to this color’s question might be no, but at least you’ll have this stunning green to look at every time you wipe your nose! This shade was designed to match the original Nyquil flavor we all cherish, but be careful—you should not drink it! It is nail polish, not Nyquil. To reiterate, you will get sicker if you drink the nail polish.
Drop Period Dusk
Everyone told you that you should’ve taken the lower level computer programming class, but you insisted you could handle the hard one. Now it’s 11:52 PM on the last day of the Drop Period, and you have a solid D+ and eight minutes to decide if you can still prove the haters wrong. When you decide you can’t, throw on this resilient shade of gray and make failure look fabulous.
Hey, Wanna Lakefill & (Wind)Chill (of -34°F)?
This gorgeous Jade lacquer commemorates that classic fall moment: the last day that Evanston’s weather is tolerable enough for you to sit on the Lakefill without getting frostbite. You think it’s cold now? Please. This frigid blue manicure will remind you that it only gets worse from here! Honestly glamorous.
