Whether your fall plans include pumpkin patches and coffee dates or snuggling up at home and relaxing, the nail ideas below will definitely have a look that’s perfect for you!

Autumn Coquette

French tips and edgy black polish are two favorite fall trends – and this cool autumn nail design gets a modern makeover with coquette details like dainty pink bows and pearl embellishments!

Neutrals & Gold

Warm neutrals are classic fall colors, so pair some of your favorites together and add a pop of shimmering gold for simple yet elevated fall nails.

Mocha Glaze

Wine Red Mani

Rich, cool-toned hues are a timeless choice for a fall mani, and I think this luxurious wine-red nail polish adds a sultry yet refined appeal to any ensemble. 

Simple Black Manicure

When in doubt, you can’t go wrong by opting for a dark, moody, and classic fall nail design like this minimal black manicure. 

Orange, Brown + Metallic Red Tips

If you ask me, adding a playful twist to a simple nail design is an easy way to elevate your look. This palette is definitely fall-inspired, and I love the addition of metallic red for a subtle contrast in this manicure. 

Burgundy + Gold

I suggest using bold, rich red and pops of gold on short nails for an eye-catching design perfect for fall. 

Fall Tortoise Shell

Tortoise shell is one of my favorite patterns for a fun twist, and it’s set to be one of the top trends in 2024. I recommend using orange and warm brown tones for this look to quickly add a fall vibe. 

Feminine Fall Gradient

I love the addition of plum and eggplant nail polish here for a chic, girly touch. Pairing these feminine shades with dark autumn neutrals creates the perfect fall gradient nail design. 

Marbled Brown Mani

If you ask me, autumn is the perfect season for marbled details. Shades of brown, white, cream, and beige swirled together are a must for a day date spent sipping a warm and cozy latte with friends!

Tortoise Shell & Gold Charms

I love gold charms for a fun and feminine touch to any nail design, and the classic black and brown tortoiseshell here instantly creates a warm autumn aesthetic. 

Autumn Palette + Botanical Art

Earthy colors and botanical nail art are a must for a boho feel this fall! This nail design above is the perfect inspo for a free spirit vibe that’s elevated enough for dinner dates and parties. 

Fall Gradient w/ Gold + Tortoise Shell Accents

In my opinion, the dark and moody tones associated with fall add a chic and sophisticated vibe to any manicure – meaning you can mix and match shades and patterns and always come out looking stunning. Plus, the gold accents definitely take these fall nails to the next level!

Brown Collage Nails

When it comes to ideas for a chic but fun-loving fall nail design – collage nails take the cake! Collage nails are definitely still on-trend in 2024, they’re cute, stylish, and unique.

I suggest using warm or dark colors here for that undeniable fall aesthetic, and you can even use a couple of shades for a bolder look. 

Autumn Flowers + Cocoa Polish

You may think floral nail art is only for spring and summer, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Autumn florals are perfect for adding feminine flair and style to a mani; just make sure to use autumn colors and stick with flowers that flourish in the fall. 

Brown Polish, Marbled Details + Gold Foil

I love marbling and gold foil as fun ways to accent and upgrade a nail design. These two details, paired with brown polish, create a refined autumn manicure perfect for date nights and brunch meetings alike. 

Velvet Copper Nails

Gold is always a hit in the fall, but I suggest opting for a copper polish if you want something just as stunning but a little more unique! This color is so alluring on its own, but the velvet finish really upgrades the mani here. 

Classic Cheetah Print

Cheetah print and fall go hand in hand since the classic animal print colors easily lend an autumn vibe to any outfit! I recommend adding this print on matte nude nails for a chic, elevated design. 

Pops of Pumpkin + Gold

I can’t give you inspiration for fall nails and forget to include a cute pumpkin nail design! 

Light orange, gold details, and a nude nail base are a fantastic combo for creating an adorable yet subtle nail design that’s perfect for all your fall-related activities in 2024!

Beige to Dark Brown Mani

If you’re looking for something sleek, stylish, and perfectly fitting for autumn – a gradient nail design featuring warm-toned neutrals would be my top pick!

Croc-Embossed Black Mani

I am obsessed with the stunning texture that a croc-embossed finish adds! Using this design on glossy black nails will give you an elegant and bold aesthetic that others will envy. 

Minimal Fall Manicure

Deep chocolate brown is really all you need for chic fall nails (in my opinion). Whether you’re going for a simple, classic design like the one above or trendy waves, this shade is sure to be a winning pick!

Sparkling Copper

Copper nail polish steals my heart again with its vibrant, warm aesthetic and a shimmering finish! I suggest a minimal mani like this for a fun fall night out in 2024. 

Fall Florals

You can still rock a colorful floral nail design in the fall! I recommend using a muted color palette and beige or cream for the base, and you’ll be autumn-ready instantly. 

Caramel & Ivory Frenchies
