Come the crisp months of fall, the serious pumpkin obsession moves past just drinking PSLs and lighting up cozy candles. In the wonderful world of seasonal manicures, too, there is an inherent desire to adorn your tips with orange polish, warm-toned glazed finishes, and itty bitty pumpkin nail designs.

Halle Bailey, for one, most recently painted her coffin-shaped tips chocolate brown and burnt orange shades, creating a “pumpkin spice aura” nail art moment. Before that, Blake Lively tapped a cognac brown polish hue with orange undertones for a mani that all but defines the fall season.

As for some other nail art designs that have been on the rise for fall 2023? Pretty plaid prints give off those Blair Waldorf-approved back-to-school vibes, while sultry “cherry mocha” hues are truly taking over. Chocolate brown crocodile print was co-signed by none other than Hailey Bieber, and for some seriously daring vibes ahead of Halloween, vampire nail art has been serving up gothic glamour.

For a stunning set that will take you through the month of November, pumpkin-inspired manicures — from subtle to detailed — are sure to make you feel like the main character.
