Upgrade Your Nails With Fall’s Hottest Looks

Summer brought us a plethora of nail trends (cc: mismatched nails via Harry Styles, jelly nails, and claws to make you look like a literal snack). But, as the sun is setting on the warmer months, it’s time to bid adieu to “hot girl summer” and start prepping for the fall season — well, at least with our nails. Below, check out some of the biggest nail art trends for this fall:


Tiger Print

We’ve all seen cheetah print, but now it’s time for a new feline-inspired design to take over our talons. It’s a great switch-up after all of the cheetah prints we’ve seen this summer (yes, we’re talking about that midi skirt), plus it’s much easier to create at home.

Pearls have popped up everywhere: bags, hair accessories, earrings, and many more. So, it only makes sense to match your nails with the trending embellishment. Use a clear polish to make your pearls stand out, or give the look your own spin with your favorite polish color.

The French 2.0

The French tip is always a classic, but why not spice it up with some color? The go-to nail deisgn of yesteryear has been spotted on quite a few familiar hands (like both Bella and Gigi Hadid), but with quite the modern upgrade.

This trend may have had its moment back in the early 2010’s, but it was brought back to life by none other than beauty mogul Kylie Jenner. It’s a look that even shorter nails can easily try.

Bare Nails

Ready to “bare” it all? If your nails need to rest from a long bout of acrylics and gel polishes, then this look is exactly what you need during the transitional months. Simply put a quick coat of clear polish, or elevate the look with some subtle gems and decals.
