It's that time again. Fall is here. Which means it's time to swap the neons and the pastels for the jewel-tones and metallics. And if you're into seasonally-inspired manicures (who isn't??), some of the prettiest fall nail art is already making the rounds on good ol' Instagram. Even as a die-hard fan of summer, I can't pretend like I'm not totally pumped to bust out all the vampy shades of polish (and lipstick!) to pair with my favorite sweaters. But maybe you're still holding on to those fleeting rays of sunshine. I don't blame you. But I have to warn you: These autumnal manicures will have you feeling fall fast. Because regardless if you prefer a clean-and-simple mani or some totally blinged-out nail art, there's something for everyone with these seasonal tips.
So calling all DIY-ers: Get out your dotting tools, striping tape, stamping plates, and glitters. And for those of us who have given up on attempting to recreate Insta-friendly nail art? You'll want to make sure your manicurist is on speed dial. Whether classic or intricate, here are 11 of the most lust-worthy, fall-themed manicures that will have you scrubbing off that coral polish ASAP.
Dark & Matte
Matte, wine hues are perfect for tips (or lips!). And pairing with gold hardware? Genius.
A glitter gradient is always a winner in my book. And those colors!
Black tips instead of white is the perfect fall-edit. But leaf nail-art just takes it to a whole other level.
Taupe nails + rhinestones = always a good idea.
Rule of thumb: If it would look good on a sweater, it'll look good on your nails.
One word: WANT.
Because who doesn't love wine and champagne, whether it's in your glass or on your nails?
Literal gold leaves make for a gorgeous fall motif.
All That Glitters
IS gold. And pairs perfectly with shiny, berry tips.
Because when your nails match your favorite scarf, that's a winning manicure.
Nothing more to say than #nailporn.
