Getting ready for fall means pulling out the fuzzy sweaters, putting away the flip-flops, and pulling together a new fall look! While you’re deciding what look to rock this year, don’t forget those ten little digits at the tips of your fingers. To give you some inspiration, we’re checking out the nail art trends coming in hot, as the weather cools down this fall season.

The new French
Forget just a slim, white line at the tip. The new French starts at the cuticle and outlines the nail to the tip. With options including the double French, half moon French, French tip twist and the ombre French, all you need is a thin brush tool and some patience to nail this trend.

Tortoiseshell
We love this layered look that combines totally autumnal shades of amber, brown, and gold with perfectly placed tortoise shell-like shapes painted over the top in black.

Glitter me up
Who doesn’t love the bling of a little glitter, especially as holiday season approaches? For this Fall trend, you will want to trade out the softer, pastel shades for rich reds, deep purples, and emerald green for a festive and totally fall-like feel.

A delicate pearl
Pretty white beads over a shimmery metallic polish are the perfect mesh of delicate but sparkly. You can use a single pearl or sprinkle your nails with several different sizes.

In the Navy
Navy blue, that is. Deep and dark without going all the way to black, high-gloss navy blue polish is a great option if you’re looking for a darker shade.

Marble-Swirl
The marble effect has been popular for quite some time but in a nod to fall, try marbling some fall colors like dark cranberry with graduated shades of pink. Top it off with a swirl of gold for a look that is almost magical.

Bring’em to tears
For an attention-grabbing style, paint a black teardrop shape at the tip of each nail accentuated by a small white dot just above the cuticle.
