We could spend all day scrolling through fall nail designs on Pinterest — in fact, we almost did for this article. From Halloween nail trends to chic neutral manicures, these are the nail looks we can’t wait to bring to the salon (or attempt to DIY) this fall. 

Neutral Hearts

This manicure is romantic without being too cutesy, thanks to its varying shades of tan and brown. Plus, LA-based nail artist @nailedbytav listed all the gel polish shades she used for this look, making it easy for your favorite manicurist to recreate.



Just because the leaves aren’t green anymore doesn’t mean that your nails can’t be. Minimalist linework designs look classic no matter the season. We love Essie Win Me Over, a muted olive with yellow undertones. 


Updated French

Freshen up a classic French manicure with two-tone polish and an outline at the moon of your nail.



Slime Stilettos

Amp up your Halloween nail game with these matte black stiletto nails dipped in neon green slime.



Twinkle, Twinkle

With a dotting tool, a thin brush and some white nail polish, you could totally DIY this starry manicure. We love the autumnal orange shade used as a base.


Pop of Red

Don’t shelve your bold summer colors come fall. Pair them with pale contrasting shades for a striking two-toned effect.



Zebra Print Tips

Take a walk on the wild side with these zebra print nails. Further proof that animal print can totally work as a neutral.


Gilded Butterflies

This simple yet glam nail look is a quick way to dress up a plain nude manicure. Try it yourself with these gold decals.


Watery Jelly Nails

We love retro jelly nails, especially in deeper shades and cool tones for fall.


Simple Contrast

Pick out your two favorite contrasting colors and some nail tape to easily replicate this colorblocked look at home.


Strawberry Shortcake

We’re suckers for sweet nail designs that work equally well on short and long nails. This strawberry design is too cute.
