'Cabernet with Bae' and more nail polish colors to help you win fall

If you haven’t snagged the perfect “it” bag or stylish coat just yet, there’s another must-have to add to your list of cold-weather essentials: fall nail polish colors. Fresh hues and finishes — from deep ruby reds and galaxy blues to confetti-like glitter and plums that pop — will really help you stand out and make everyone stop and stare at your nails.

Yahoo Lifestyle collaborated with international nail artist Tracylee Percival to create a guide on the six trendiest fall nail colors. Keep scrolling for some manicure inspiration and to learn DIY tips to re-create these looks at home.

Royal red
Red will always be a classic nail color, but for the cooler months, a true ruby red is the way to go. Modernize it by adding negative space. “The easiest way to create negative space, or ‘floating nail art,’ as I like to call it, is to use guides of striping tape,” says Percival. “Place the sticky guide or tape to the nail and polish were you want your design to go. Finish by removing the tapes after drying one minute.”

Plum-tastic
Whether you are more into eggplant or sangria, plum is one of those fall colors that never really gets old. Try an accent nail with hints of gold shimmer to really make a statement. For the cleanest DIY manicure, Percival always suggests using a base coat. “I hear often that people skip the base coat when doing their own manicures,” she says. “This is one of the most important products for polish longevity and should never be omitted.”

Glitter girl
Rumor has it that glitter polish will leave your nails damaged and it’s hard to “neatly” apply. But that’s not quite the case if you have a little guidance. Percival explains, “The easiest way to control glitter polish on the nail is to use a dabbing motion. Remove the brush from the bottle and wipe off most of the clear base polish on one side of the brush only. This will leave a lot of glitter on the other side. Then dab glitter onto the nail. You can also apply glitter polish to a makeup sponge and sponge it onto the nail it’s a little messier but works just as well.”

According to Percival, the best tool to remove glitter polish is felt, which you can purchase from your local craft store. “Cut it into small pieces. Then use pure acetone on the felt, hold it on the nail for 30 seconds, and rub the glitter off. The felt grabs the glitter and holds it for easier removal.”

Galaxy blue
Space age-like blues are taking over this season, and if you are ready to try a completely new color that is also a great conversation starter, you might want to make this your go-to. For a fun, festive flair for your next holiday party, add in a few metallic purple stripes to your mani. The best part: Instead of attempting to draw straight lines, you can fake it until you make it with metallic striping tape that you can buy at a drugstore. After applying the striping tape, lock it all in with a glossy top coat.

Gray-ish 
This muted light gray tone isn’t too light or too dark, and incorporates a subtle yet stunning touch to any fall or winter wardrobe. Give it a try once or make it your staple there’s really no wrong way to wear it, and it looks amazing on many skin tones.

Burnt orange may be the hottest nail color of the season. (Photo: Casey Hollister for Yahoo Lifestyle)

Burnt orange
Instead of boring brown nail polish, opt for this burnt orange rendition that’s a little spicier. It’s sort of like a nude but with a little more pizzazz. If you are trying to figure out which variation of burnt orange works best for you, Percival suggests taking a closer look at your cuticles. “This is a great color guide to use for finding your perfect shade,” she says. Individuals with lighter skin tones should look for burnt orange nail polish colors with cool undertones, while those with medium to dark complexions would look best in lacquers with warmer undertones.

Percival’s final words of advice: “Don’t be afraid to layer different colors or tones to get the perfect match!”

    Why New Age Beverage Corp. Stock Popped Today

    Shares of New Age Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ: NBEV) were climbing again today, riding a surge on marijuana stocks as growers like Tilray, Cronos Group, and Canopy Growth all jumped by double digits. Along with the bullish sentiment in the industry, a number of other factors seemed to be driving New Age shares higher, including the recent hiring of a new CFO, the upcoming legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada on Wednesday, and the market's reaction to its launch last week of a new line of beverages infused with cannabidiol (CBD). On Friday, New Age named Gregory Gould as its new CFO, a notable move as Gould brings experience from the pharmaceutical industry, which should help the beverage company as it moves into CBD products.

Taylor prefers CannTrust Holdings Inc., Hexo Corp. and Organigram Holdings Inc., which he says trade at a “more realistic valuation” than some of their bigger peers.

    Marijuana stocks to watch: Canopy Growth is the cannabis business’s $4 billion gorilla

    The following article is part of a package of stories that MarketWatch is publishing to mark the start of full legalization of cannabis for adult use in Canada on Wednesday. Smith Falls, Ontario–based Canopy Growth Corp. made headlines and drove cannabis stocks to new heights over the summer when it announced that Corona brewer Constellation Brands Inc. was going to invest an additional $4 billion in the company. Billed by both companies as a strategic partnership, the additional $4 billion investment adds to the 9.9% stake that Constellation bought in October of last year and sets the company up to either be bought outright by Constellation — via warrants that could increase its stake to more than 50% — or continue to work with the beverage company to create a range of consumer-focused cannabis products that may one day appear in markets in dozens of countries.

    Many U.S. mall owners say good riddance to Sears

    The real estate investment trusts that own the malls and shopping centers where many Sears stores are anchor tenants have waited years for the retailer's demise to renovate the sites and boost rent, although redevelopment costs may strain some plans. Most large U.S. malls are controlled by REITs. In recent years, the REITs have cut their exposure to Sears Holdings Corp, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday.

    Bankruptcy judge approves financing to keep Sears open

    Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in White Plains, New York earlier on Monday with a plan to close about 142 of its 700 stores by year-end and sell its best-performing stores in an auction in January to a buyer that will keep them operational. The bankruptcy filing by the parent of Sears, Roebuck and Co and Kmart Corp follows a decade of revenue declines, hundreds of store closures, and years of deals by billionaire Eddie Lampert in an attempt to turn around the company he acquired in 2005 for $11 billion. Lampert, who stepped down as Sears CEO on Monday but will remain chairman, had pledged to restore Sears to its glory days, when it owned the tallest building in the world and companies that included a radio station and Allstate insurance.
