21 Fall Nail Designs You’ll Love

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

 

Nail Designs

 

Put a new spin on last season’s chevron with this glittering nail design by Dressed Up Nails. Gold sparkle and a different polish on each digit update the look.

 

Marble Mani

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

 

Nail Designs

 

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.

 

Glitter Gradient

 

Nail Designs

 

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.

 

Glitter Rays

 

Nail Designs

 

If you prefer your glitter polish in a sunburst, this design by Deez Nailz is for you. Give the glitter a fall feel by silhouetting it against a dark, moody hue.

 

Framed

If you’re bored with the French tip, try its cousin—the framed mani. Red Hair and Black Nail Polish says this fall nail design looks best on round nails. We love the Egyptian feel of these digits.

 

Stained Glass

 

Nail Designs

 

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.

 

Matte Meets Glitter

 

Nail Designs

 

Matte meets glitter in this fall nail desgin by Shelby’s Swatches. The juxtaposition between the eggplant matte finish and chunky glitter makes this a statement nail look.

 

Fishnets and Gloss

 

Nail Designs

 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, a high-gloss finish makes an already-vampy hue extra seductive. Add fishnet detailing like Daily Something for an even more sultry style.

 

Black Dots

 

Nail Designs

 

If you are partial to pastels, make them fall-worthy with a black dot mani. Miss LadyFinger does it right with this fall take on the French tip.

 

Bejeweled

 

Nail Designs

 

The only things more on trend than jewel tones for fall nail designs are real jewels. Ida-Marian Kynnet adds orange jewels, crystals, and beads to make a simple black mani luxe.

 

An Apple a Day

 

Nail Designs

 

The only thing better than an apple on your teacher’s desk? The fruit on your nails. Steffels’ nail look brings the summer fruit nail trend flawlessly into fall.

 

Autumn Nights

 

Nail Designs

 

Get the look of the autumn night sky in one polish with this fall nail design tutorial by The PolishAholic. This dark, romantic mani gives all the sparkle in just a few quick, easy coats.

 

Refined Animals

 

Nail Designs

 

Turn summer’s animal print into a fall nail design favorite with amkuch15’s tonal nail art. She mixes matte and glossy to keep the print sophisticated.

 

The Golden Age

 

Nail Designs

 

Forget leaving the brights behind in August. Take a note from Nailed It’s fall nail art and create a colorful design with gold, purple, and gray hues.

 

Tribal

 

Nail Designs

 

Turn this summer’s tribal manicure into a fall nail look with clean lines and demure colors. Melcisme adds studs for a little edge on the refined nail art.

 

Gold Leaf

 

Nail Designs

 

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.

 

Snakeskin

 

Nail Designs

 

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

 

Nail Designs

 

Put an unexpected spin on the half-moon mani with a few inverted digits. Extra points if you take a note from this fall nail look by Majikbeenz Nails and add gold sparkle and a high-shine topcoat.

 

Gel Gradient

 

Nail Designs

 

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!

 

Golden Half Moons

 

Nail Designs

 

Gold-and-black is a no-fail combo for fall nail designs. Viva La Daisy makes the look fresh with the high-gloss finish of this half-moon mani.
