Your Complete Guide To Nail Trends This Fall

Fall is the time for fashion. Haircolor changes with the leaves and we are layering new jackets and jeans. Of course, we’re going to need nails to match! 


This season, take your manicures to the next level with these hot trends. These are ideas you can share with your clients (or save for yourself!). Keep scrolling to be inspired to get your nails done ASAP—and to grab a pumpkin spice latte on the way there! 


1. We All Know & Love The “Squiggle”

This abstract nail design is a hit this fall. It matches best with an almond nail shape, since it looks natural and curvy. Your client can pick two or three of their favorite neutral colors to pull off this look.

2. Marble Is A MUST

Marble nail art is a luxurious and impressive design. Simply add a pop of gold streaks or flakes to elevate the look. Earthy tones on a ballerina nail shape is the most-loved for this trend.

3. Everyone’s Talking About The “Hailey Bieber Nails” (a.k.a. Glazed Donut Nails)

This light pink color gives off a clean and classy vibe. It is topped off with a thin layer of chrome, for a subtle pop. Shorter, rounded nails are the go-to shape for this simple gem.

4. Matte Manis 

It’s time to switch from vibrant, summer colors to muted, rich hues. Fall is the perfect time for matte, as it gives a softer, cozy vibe. 


Play around with matte by adding a clear design with a skinny brush and a glossy coat. This look is most commonly rocked with the ballerina-shaped nail.

Cheetah print, tortoise shell and other patterns with a warm-hued background is now in style. Grab those deep reds, toasted browns and creamy tones and match them with a rounded tip or almond-shaped nail.

6. Not So French Tips

Who says French manicures have to be French? This fall, anything goes. Tips no longer have to be straight-cut and plain. Try abstract shapes, drip tips and funky designs. This trend works best on a longer nail, especially a skinny ballerina shape.
