The leaves are starting to change colors, and that can only mean one thing: Fall is here! Though yesterday was the official “First Day of Autumn” if you go by the calendar, Mother Nature has been teasing us with fall-like weather for the past two weeks. It’s time to say goodbye to the neons (for now!) and welcome a new class of fall nail shades to get your tips in top shape for the new season.

Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
