With fall officially upon us, it’s time to start stepping up your mani to match the season. And while we love a good vampy nail for fall (Essie Bordeaux, anyone?), we’re all about adding some nail art into the mix too. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite fall nail art looks ahead, so you have endless inspo heading into fall.


Peep our picks, ahead:


A Fall Mood

With different colors and textures on each finger, enchanted_nailz creates a dreamy fall vibe in the mani below. This is perfect for someone who wants the effect of nail art but only has polishes on hand.

Mani & Brews

Inspired by Oktoberfest, this festive mani by Katrinamariee celebrates all things good about the days-long festival (think pretzels and beer) on each nail. The drawings she creates aren’t the easiest to DIY, but you can try to recreate the mani with your favorite fall motifs.

Festive Yet Chic

One of the best parts of fall is the changing of the leaves — this isn’t up for debate. Essie perfectly captures that with this foliage inspired mani that offers the trendy negative space nail look and autumnal hues at the same time.

Sweater Weather

Nothing says sweater weather like a textured, ribbed mani. This nail look by ninanailedit is simple and subtle but undeniably glam — pairing a metallic knit pattern with a perfect nude for her skin tone.
