Is it just me, or is this fall the best season of nail colors? It seems like late summer always has us itching to try out fall nail trends and finally paint on some dark grays, deep greens, or autumnal reds as soon as cold weather hits. This nail obsession makes perfect sense—our nails are a part of everything we do! So when the seasons (finally!) start to turn and fall is just around the corner, it’s time to make sure our fingers know what time of year it is too.

Our nails are often one of the first things someone notices about us, and first impressions are important. Make a good one with these cool nail trends that will surely get you in the fall spirit—or, you know, just a lot of compliments from your friends.

Olive & June


From Olive & June's fall 2021 collection, this dark pink is a perfect neutral for the season.



This deep indigo color is everywhere this fall, and has that perfect back-to-school collegiate feel that's totally autumnal.


Rocky Rose

This terracotta hue is perfect for fall. Add a little warmth and fun when paired with a fall uniform staple like cozy oatmeal sweaters and your favorite leggings.


Acidic Attraction

Another fall signature, this golden hue is bright and playful.


Off Tropic

Opt for a deep forest green nail color for a classic color in an updated way. Pair with preppy accessories and you might be mistaken for Blair Waldorf.



This bluish purple color from JINsoon is super popular right now, and gives off the perfect moody fall vibes.


On the Mauve

Edgier than pink, but girlier than grey, mauve is the perfect color to transition your beauty looks into fall. It's a muted color, making it pretty for colder days and a darker version of the nude nail trend. 


Malaga Wine

This chic maroon shade is not your typical crimson—this deep fall color is the perfect mix of intoxicating and vampy red wine.


Coconuts Over OPI

Why not paint your nails the exact same shade as your first hot latte of the season?!


Strong Coal-ition

The updated version of the classic black manicure, charcoal gray is effortlessly chic and matches anything.
