Fall Nail Design Inspiration


Replying to @addison_23.star how to create mt favorite mani. Matte with glossy french tips🤍#nails #nailpolish #nailinspo #nailsoftiktok #nailart #nailtutorial #diynails #diymanicure #naturalnails #nailsathome #nailhack #mixmatch #mattenails #frenchtips

Glossy French Tips

Play with textures by painting your entire nail with a matte top coat, then adding a glossy version of the same color to the tips of your nails. It's a barely-there detail that really makes a difference.


Half moon nails are the newest iteration of the French mani, and we're obsessed with this neon look. “The half moon nail has become a go-to design over the past few months," Wethrift trend expert Nick Drewe said. "The best thing about the nail design is that it can be incorporated into your individual style, you can go for a bold and daring colour or opt for a neutral tone."

Fall In Love

Tiny hearts are always in-season as far as we're concerned, and with the autumnal color palette, they look like they could be fall leaves! You can swap the colors each season to keep your mani on-theme.

Patterns *Galore*

Do a different pattern on each nail to keep things interesting – but use the same handful of colors to be cohesive.

Pearl Manicure

OPI nail polishes and chrome powder are the best-kept secret to getting this pearly mani, and we're absolutely obsessed.

All Smiles

Add some aesthetically-pleasing contrast using Jin Soon Smiles Nail Art Appliqué on top of their Absolute Black polish. Pick out a few orange stickers for that *classic* fall color combo (hello, Halloween!), or try a different color on each nail. 🤪

Glass Nails

“Glass nails are back in full force. The technique created by nail artist Eun Kyung is going to be a huge hit this autumn," sais Wethrift trend expert Nick Drewe. "The nail art involves applying shards of cellophane to the nails, which gives the illusion of shattered glass. You can customize the trend to make it unique to you. For example, try adding some chunky glitter for a fun festival vibe, apply a matte topcoat for a sophisticated look, or play around with different colors to create a rainbow effect.”

Van Gogh Inspo

Freeform shapes turn a regular manicure into something that's extra artistic. Play with different widths and straight lines versus curved lines for added dimension!


Autumnal motifs like ghosts get a chic upgrade when paired with pink shades, instead of black or orange. It's a feminine and fun way to set your nails apart!

Pink Gingham

The key to making this nail art from Holly Falcone look like gingham instead of a regular checkered pattern is using two different shades of pink to create the overlap.


Fall is comming and with that comes fall nails! Who doesn’t love easy nail art!?💅🏼✨#fallnails #fallnailart #nailartturorial #tutorial #fyp

Curves + Twirls

Adding your own designs to your nails can be a fun way to find out which shapes you like best on your nails! How do long curves look? What about short and wide ones? Get a small nail art brush to practice.


This toned-down version of a multicolor manicure gives us *all* the fall vibes. Bonus points if the colors you pick play into your fall wardrobe color palette.


I’m overdoing it w this design but OH WELL #fallnails #nailinspo #autumnnails #CandyCrushAllStars #orangenails #pumpkinseason

Smokin' Hot

If you have a summer nail trend that you love, try recreating it with colors that are more autumnal for an updated version! Empty space on the nails becomes even more of a statement with a deep red polish. 🔥

An Ethereal State of Mind

Getting a plain mani can have dimension when you pick a shade that's holographic or iridescent. Holly Falcone picked the ORLY shade Ingenue to create this Sugar Plum Fairy-approved look.


Give your manicure some visual interest without relying on different top-coat textures by doing a multicolor look like this tortoiseshell mani. It's chic, warm, and interesting without looking overwhelming.

Animal Print

Walk on the wild side with a zebra print mani. “Animal prints seem to be one of the hottest trends of the season," Wethrift trend expert Nick Drewe told B+C. "People are putting a spin on the classic leopard print nail, opting for a cow or zebra print and creating a printed french. For maximalists, we’re stepping away from the traditional cow and zebra print colors and going for a more daring color palette, of pinks, blues, purples and oranges."

The *Perfect* French Tips

To get the perfect French tip, use a small brush to draw an outline around the tips of your nails and then fill in the empty space with your regular polish brush. After it's dry, you can use that same small brush to add any and every detail your heart desires.
