As we kiss goodbye to summer and all its amazing, fresh, and colorful trends, a new season arrives. Get ready for spooky season, slasher movies, flannel shirts, boots, scarves and ounces of pumpkin spice latte: it’s September!

1. Fall Nail Designs: Fall Nail Ideas For Everyone (back to index)

Whether you’re a fan of long, cat-like stilettos or you like to keep it short, minimal, and natural, TikTok is (once again) the place to look when it comes to new trends, ideas, DIY, fashion, and more.

I gathered the best 25 fall nail designs for you to get your claws ready for the new season. Are you ready?

2. Burgundy Acrylic Nails (back to index)

This might as well be the number one shade for fall. Let’s be honest - we’ve all longed for the simplicity of a perfectly crafted, shiny set of burgundy acrylic nails!

@emmablaz can’t go wrong with these 💅🏼💅🏼 #nailvlog #fallnailinspo #fallnails2022 #fallnailinspo2022 #classicnails #acrylicnails ♬ original sound - Jessica Reilly
@jellybeanpolish I’m ready to start wearing fall colors! I don’t care if it’s still 90 degrees out. 🥵😂 Are you starting to wear your fall polish or holding out a little longer? Here’s a swatch of @Olive Ave Polish Sumac. It has such a beautiful shimmer and a great formula! It’s definitely a one-coater. (I always wear 2 coats for extra protection on my nails though.) #fallnails #fallnails2022 #nailswatches #nailswatcher #fallnails🍂🍁💅🏻 #nailtok #nailtiktok #nailvideos ♬ Always Remember Us This Way - Lady Gaga

3. Half Moon Ombre (back to index)

A color-gradient set in the tones of fallen leaves is the best way to welcome the colder months. When paired to a trendy half-moon application, it becomes a liminal fashion statement.

4. Marble Acrylics In Brown (back to index)

The marble effect on acrylic nails peaked in popularity somewhere around 2015, and some aficionados of the look are trying to repurpose it this year.

5. Swirly Nails (back to index)

Nails with swirls have gone viral throughout 2021 and summer 2022, so I understand - it’s hard to let go of such a simple yet effective nail art design. Neutral shades and a touch of dark burgundy make the swirl nail design go a long way even through the upcoming season.

7. Gradient French Manicure (back to index)

French manicure, but make it colorful. Yep, you heard that right! This classic trend can adapt to so many looks, it would be a pity not to try them all. For example, you can pick your favorite shades of brown and recreate a set inspired by the hues of fallen leaves.
