Fall Nail Trends
Fall is all about fashion…it’s also the season of change, so if you’re looking for fresh new ways to keep your fingers stylish, we’ll go ahead and give you a hand. Here are trends we’re excited about. Copy away!
Show-Stopper – Copper
Step aside PSL, this multi-dimension shade has hints of orange, caramel and gold and it’s oh so autumn. It’s glazy, glam metallic finish evokes all the fall feels you could ask for. Here’s our two cents: Copper is stunningly simple, looks genuinely gorgeous on everyone and it’s the perfect color to usher in boots and sweater weather.
Join the Glitterati
Welcome to the not-so-secret sect in the beauty world. Yep, glitter is all grown up (chic but still fun!) and once you set the clocks back this fall, consider it high-time to shine. Glittery, glistening nails (as seen at Kate Spade’s fall collection) make an ultra-glam statement, but you don’t have to go all in. Mix it up - monochromatic colors with a chrome or metallic finish - and you’re officially in with the chic crowd.
Time to swap your sweet, summer rosé for something a little deeper – with more depth. A bold but classic choice are the darker red wine hues. These vino-inspired fantasy shades, as seen on alice + olivia’s fall runway, are ultra-versatile (think “wine with everything”!) and poised to be a sophisticated staple of your nail wardrobe. It’s also a smoking hot lip shade this season.
Nail art speaks volumes about your vibe, and one of this season’s hottest trends takes that literally - letters, numbers, symbols and decorations you can effortlessly stick on. Extra, Extra: Jeremy Scott’s show featured pop art nail lettering mimicking newspaper type (Spelling out “NEW YORK” on the models’ nails) and a similar trend was spotted at this season’s Anna Sui show. It’s seriously the best way to let your fingers do the talking, and we hope this trend sticks around!
Hit the Marble
Swirling with excitement, the marble mani is having a major moment, and the trend this fall is rock solid. Last we checked there were 788K posts tagged #marblenails, so it’s safe to say the trend is at play. Nailing the design can be tricky – even for the pros – so one great way to save some time and money is to skip the salon or the YouTube tutorials and simply press them on.
Pretty in Pink
From girly details to sweet prints, romance is a big theme for fall and we’re officially in love! Pearlescent light pinks, dreamy matte mauves and delicate florals are so easy to crush on this season. Romantic shades and designs are lovely alternatives to nudes and neutrals and just a pretty sweet way to add some fun and flirtation to fall.
