I can't begin to tell you how many sentimental "so long summer" social media posts I saw on my feeds this past Labor Day Weekend. Seriously, it felt like we would never see a beach or ice cream cone again in our lives.

Pro tip: Summer will happen again next year. Bonus pro tip: You can and should eat ice cream all year round.

Don't get me wrong, I love sundresses and frolicking along beaches as much as the next girl, but I'm ready for the season to change. Perhaps I'm a bit biased (I'm a September baby), but for anyone still feeling a bit weepy about the fact that it's time to start packing up those swimsuits, here are a handful of reasons to get excited about fall:

1. Snuggly Boots and Sweaters

2. Halloween Candy

3. Back to School and decorating your new dorm room

4. Walking across crispy leaves

5. Pumpkin Spice Lattes (despite the fact that's there's no real pumpkin in it)

6. Fall TV Premiers like Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, and Parenthood

7. Fashion Month

And if that isn't enough to get you excited, consider this: new fall nail polishes. From OPI's rich Nordic colors to Deborah Lippmann's glamorous New York Marquee lacquers, here are 15 excuses to add to your ever-growing polish collection and even more colorful reasons to fall in love with Fall.

Metallic Indigo Nail Polish

This deep, purply blue polish, part of Deborah Lippmann’s limited edition New York Marquee Fall ‘14 collection, has a hint of shimmer for a luxurious finish.

Limited Edition Harlem Nocturne, $20,

Rusty Orange Nail Polish

It wouldn’t be fall without a shade of rusty orange in the mix. This color is one of nine polishes from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS collection.

Set of Five Rich Metallic Nail Polishes

Get your hands on Ciaté’s latest House Collection, Haute House. Inspired by luxe lingerie labels, these polishes are ultra rich and glossy — perfect for complementing all of fall’s rich colors.

Haute House, $25,

Rich Brown Nail Polish

Okay, so since I live in Copenhagen I was a little biased when picking the Denmark-inspired color from OPI’s new Nordic Collection, but I seriously love this deep chocolatey brown color. The complete collection has 12 colors with a lot of purples and browns.

OPI How Great Is Your Dane, $6.44,

Deep Red, Shimmery Nail Polish

This rich red color was inspired by Pulp Fiction’s 20th anniversary, because what could be wrong with channeling Mrs. Mia Wallace?

Pulp Fiction, $15,

Soft Peach Nail Polish

This creamy peach polish, one of Julep’s newest colors, is perfect for any time of year. Bonus: It’s vegan-friendly.

Kelsey, $14,

Soft Grey Nail Polish

You can’t go wrong with this neutral beige polish from RGB. It has the tiniest touch of lavender for that certain je ne sais quoi factor.

Faded, $18,

Shimmery Gold Nail Polish

I know summer’s barely over, but I can’t help but think that this fall polish will work well in winter during the holiday season. Too soon?

Giorgio Armani Oro Oscuro Nail Lacquer, $20,

Deep Teal Nail Polish

This opaque grey teal lacquer is as cozy as your fall wardrobe.

Essie The Perfect Cover Up, $9,

Pink Iridescent Nail Polish

Chanel’s new iridescent pink polish is soft, subtle, and perfectly playful. I can’t wait to get my hands on a bottle or two of this.

Le Vernis Atmosphère, $27,

Set of Three Classic Polish Shades

This trio of classic colors will suit any occasion that this season has in store.

Ruffian Classics Collection, $24,

Pink to Purple Color Changing Nail Polish

Color changing and scented? Do I need to list any more reasons to buy this immediately? Other scents include chocolate mousse, strawberry shortcake, and cinnamon bun. At this point, do I even care what the colors look like?

Sweet Cream (Scented), $10,

Classic Gold Nail Polish

I love CND’s vinylux polish and this classic gold will work beautifully with all of fall’s colors. Wear it with the special topcoat for even longer wear.

CND Vinylux Locket Love, $7,

Soft Periwinkle Nail Polish

This pale blue polish is part of Floss Gloss’ Fall/Winter ‘14 collection Lifestyles of the Floss & Gloss. The other shades include Donatella, a shimmery bronze, and Mrs. Tony Montana, an opaque white that pays tribute to Scarface.

95% Angel, $8,

Louboutin Red Nail Polish

At $50 a bottle, Christian Louboutin’s nail polish certainly is beautiful but it isn’t the most economical choice. Then again, it’s Christian Louboutin nail polish. I’ll let you decide if it’s worth it.

Rouge Louboutin, $50,
