21 Fall Nail Designs You’ll Love
by Luna Ward
Welcome the warmer hues of fall with this collection of 21 fall nail designs. With seasonal motifs like harvest fruits and colors that rival the prettiest scenic drives, you’ll be right on trend for fall.
The New Chevron
Natacha, the blogger behind The Glossy, says this no-water marbled design might be her favorite nail look yet, and we have to agree: She does fall jewel tones best with this mani. The vampy hues and smokelike swirls make it ideal for the nail addict who wants to celebrate Halloween without painting blood drips (too goth!) or jack-o’-lanterns (too cute!) on her nails.
All That Glitters
Bring some of summer’s sparkle into fall with All Things Beautiful’s glitter nail art. Orange and blue make a great color combo for fall nail designs. But if you desire a more demure color palette, try mixing black and blue.
Love Varnish captures the aesthetic of tons of autumn leaves falling to the ground. While we like fall nail designs that take the leaf look literally, there’s something more ethereal about this glitter gradient version.
Inspired by stained glass, these gel-esque polishes (all from Zoya’s appropriately named Gloss Collection) come together perfectly in this mani. The Manicurator says these lacquers are so shiny you don’t even need a topcoat.

The Golden Age
This fall nail design by Duck Duck Gander has no shortage of sparkle. If you have a steady hand, free-handing the leaves is a breeze. If you’re a bit shaky or looking for a faster mani, try a nail decal and a coat of glitter polish.
Bring summer’s snakeskin obsession into fall with this jewel tone mani. Use Chalkboard Nails‘ trick—lace as a stencil!—to paint the perfect snakeskin. This statement style will make all your fall outfits look chic.
Inverse Moon Mani
If you are more of a gel manicure girl, Nail in the Coffee uses the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Starter Kit to achieve long-lasting fall nail designs. If her first attempt is this vampy gradient, we can’t wait to see what she does next!
