You could target subsequent folders in the navigation using nth-child(n), change the colours as needed and add as many as you want.

.header-nav-item--folder:nth-child(1) { 
  .header-nav-folder-content {
    background: #a1bea8; 
.header-nav-item--folder:nth-child(2) { 
  .header-nav-folder-content {
    background: red; 
.header-nav-item--folder:nth-child(3) { 
  .header-nav-folder-content {
    background: blue; 

Hope this helps!
