With the celebration of Labor Day now behind us it is official, summer is over. But that’s okay, bring on the chunky knit sweaters and pumpkin spice everything! And even though those things are really exciting, the best part about the last few months of the year can only be one thing…the nail art! Here we’ve chosen the best fall nail art trends for you to try on your clients this season!

Negative Space

The negative space nail art trend is far from fading away. From natural nails to extreme extensions, negative space nail art has made itself a long-lasting trend.

Abstract Nail Art

Art has been an inspiration for nail art for some time now. But this fall, abstract art has been making waves all over social media. 80’s and 90’s patterns and colorways are showing up all over Instafeeds and the nailfies do not disappoint.

Matte & Marble

There is something about this nail art combo that screams fall weather. Mixing a matte swatch with a marble nail design is the perfect way to make sure your mattes are never boring.

Glitter Accent Nail

Any nail tech will tell you: “You can NEVER go wrong with glitter!” and they wouldn’t be lying. No matter the season, glitter is always an option. But instead of a full set (because who want to remove that?) try giving clients a standout glitter accent nail with the right fall-colored swatch.

No longer the request of creepy guys on the internet. Nude nail polish has been attracting a lot of wanted attention from minimalist clients. Now nude polish comes in more shades than ever, allowing you to spice up a nude manicure with some mono-chromatic nail art.

Copper and Hot Pink

The hottest duo hitting the runway this fall? Hot Pink paired with Copper. Give your clients fashion forward fingers by pairing these two shades together.

Mismatch Colors

Have a client that can never decide which shade they want? Let them choose a range colors and give them a mismatched manicure that is anything but boring.

You can never go wrong with a mustard yellow, deep wine or pumpkin orange swatch!

Fall Foils

Transfer foils are a great way to add a little something extra to a nail design. Create a unique nail art look by combining different shades of foil together.

A fall classic, with Pumpkins being seen everywhere why not a little nail art for the season?
