20 Manicures That Are Perfect For Fall


By De Elizabeth

Spring and summer manicures are great and all, but we are all about the darker colors – which are perfect for fall. There’s something about the shades of blue, gray, and black that go with almost every warm fuzzy sweater scarf or flannel button-down shirt. In honor of being fully immersed in fall weather at this point, here are 20 manicure ideas that you’ll want to steal throughout the colder months.

1. Geometric symbols for days.


Hi, yes, hello, we’re obsessed with this.

2. Try a french manicure with an accent tip.

Black looks chic and elegant, but you could do other colors too.

3. Get some glitter up in there.






Put the glitter closest to your nail bed for a contemporary and funky effect.

4. Mix gray and pink.



With a twist of plaid.

5. Choose dark green and gold.



Bonus – this would be a perfect mani for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

6. Go stencil crazy.


Florals look great in gold hues.

7. Embrace gingham.




Bros aren’t the only ones who can get away with this pattern.

8. Choose navy.


Navy will make any jewelry sparkle.

9. Or blood red.


Channel your inner Lady Gaga à la American Horror Story: Hotel with this color.

10. And opt for long, square nails.


If you have the patience to grow your nails, try a square shape for the tips.

11. Mix chevron and other patterns.


Ugh, we’re obsessed.

12. And if you can’t decide on one color – get them all.




An obvious solution.

13. Reach for the stars.


Put the entire galaxy on your nails.

14. Select one of the fifty shades of grey.


Pretty much any grayish hue is perfect for autumn.

15. Mix florals and glitter.


If you can’t part with springtime looks, that’s okay.

16. And if you dare, go pointy.


Almond shaped nails are not for the faint of heart.

17. For fox sake!


Ain’t no better mani than a fox mani.

18. Do an accent nail.
