If there’s one word we’d use to describe fall nail trends for 2019, it would be “extra.” From tortoiseshell tips to pretty pearl accents, this season’s nails are anything but boring. And though we love a good pumpkin spice-inspired manicure, we’re happy to report that not all of this season’s trends revolve around colorful leaves, autumnal coffee or pretty burnt-orange floral nail designs.
On-trend ombré nails are transitioning into softer, more subtle shades. Plus, we’re seeing a ’90s resurgence with glittery hues and a modern take on the classic French manicure (yes, really!). Longs tips are here to stay, too. So if you’re not into nail extensions, consider growing out your talons this fall — you’re going to want that extra space to flaunt these fun trends. Keep scrolling for 16 fall nail designs you’ll be seeing all over the ‘Gram this season.
You’re going to want to book a mani appointment with time to spare, because sexy extensions are here to stay. Keep ’em autumnal by painting your extensions burnt orange, dark green, or any other fall-inspired shade.
The reverse French mani is getting an update, too, with added glitter and fall-inspired shades. Keep it simple with one shade (we love the metallic silver above) along the cuticle, leaving the remainder painted your favorite shade of nude.
