Fall Nails 2023: Trend Alert

Almost every year, fall nails tend to be in warm, autumn colors (no surprise there). However, the actual trends and designs change quite a bit.

Here are the hottest fall nail trends of 2021.

1. Abstract Nails

Unsurprisingly, abstract art nails are still super popular this fall. Abstract nails can range from a few sparkly swipes on a regular nail base to various colored swirls.

If you scroll through the inspiration photos below, you’ll see lots of abstract fall nails designs. I especially love fall nails with abstract designs in a mixture of brown tones.

2. Astrology/Witch Designs

Astrology is more “in” than ever, even on your nails! This fall, paint a black ombre and showcase the moon phases, or opt for witchy, cloudy nails that are a bit mysterious.

I especially love astrology prints over dark or black nails.

3. Dark Almond Fall Nails

Dark colors are definitely trendy this fall. The almost nail shape is here to stay, so one of the hottest looks is painting your almond nails in darker shades.

I personally like a rich brown, warm grey, or black.

4. Fall-Colored Tips

Reverse tips are still trendy, so switch up your colors for a fall manicure.

I especially love natural nails with brown tips. You can even through in an accent nail. I included plenty of example photos below!

5. Shades Of Orange

Just like any other autumn, orange fall nails are still super trendy. There are so many different orange fall nails ideas out there this year!

However, try out various orange shades on each nail for a layered manicure.

This look is especially cute in almond, coffin, or square shapes!

It will no doubt be a fabulous season if you’re all about this autumnal vibe. So, of course, your nails need to go fall-appropriate too.

Autumn Nail Art with Acrylic Paint and a Scarf:

So this fall nail art is not only lovely, but also super creative. You create the scarf design by using any patterned paper you want (or even old book pages) – then you just tape it around your nails in the shape of a scarf! This is one of my favorite unique fall nails ideas.
