20 Pretty Fall Manicure Ideas You Need To Try

Got your pumpkin spice latte? What about a cozy knit sweater? How about your fall manicure? What’s that, you haven’t thought about the last one yet? If you’re dreaming about pumpkins, fall leaves, and what scary movie you should be watching, you should also be thinking about fall nail art.

I don’t know about you, but I always love to celebrate the change of seasons with different manicures. Spring equals pastels and flower nail art. Summer means brighter colors and possibly a palm tree accent nail or two, and fall means rich autumnal nail polishes and all the variations of pumpkins. And that’s just the start of things.

There are so many ways to nod to the new season with nail art. What’s more, there’s a design that will work with your style and your nail art skill level whether you’re a newbie or a pro. Have a gander at 20 beautiful fall manicure ideas.

1. Scarecrow Manicure

Pumpkins aren’t the only fall symbol. Remember, scarecrows. The colors on this are very autumnal and the design is actually quite easy to do.


2. Orange And Burgundy Ombre

Love the scarf. Love the rings. Love the ombre nails.


3. White Nails With Gold Leaf

This cool textured design really does look like leaves blowing in the wind.


4. Gold And Red Sparkle Tips With Fall Leaf

The glitter already has an autumnal feeling. The multicolored leaf enhances it.


5. Fox And Paw Print Nail Art

A fox might not be the first thing you think of when you think of fall, but you should try it. Just look at how adorable it is. And that orange color is bang on trend for the season.


6. Gray Nails With Argyle Accent

Feel free to tweak this accordingly to match your nails to your sweater.


7. Stiletto Leaf Nails With Gold Leaf

It’s double leaf. We have the gold leaf applique and the painted gold leaf design. The gray background is a unique twist. I bet you were expecting brown or beige.


8. Brown Nails With Gold Glitter And Leaf Tips

This is a fresh take on a French manicure that you don’t see every day.


9. White Nails With Acorn Designs

Don’t become so obsessed with leaves that you forget about acorns.


10. Orange And White Chevron Design

This definitely has a fall feeling but it’s more subtle than painting a turkey, pumpkin, and leaves on your nails.


11. Fall Trees And Sparkly Orange Nails

A sparkly orange nail polish pairs perfectly with a fall tree design.


12. Orange Fall Leaf Detail

How cool is this stamped nail art? It nods to spiderwebs as much as fall leaves. It’s also something you could freehand.


13. Matte Brown Leaf Nails With Fox Accent

This matte chocolate brown nail polish is sooooooooooooo rich. Combined with the bright colors, it is stunning.


14. Goldenrod Yellow Nails And Crows

Yellow is for summer. Goldenrod is for fall. It’s the season to show the underappreciated crow some love.


15. Pale Blue Nails With Pumpkin Moons

This is so cute. The pale blue is very unexpected and the placement of the pumpkins is brilliant.


16. Graphic Tree Nail Art On Blue Nails

The blue represents the sky and plays off the fall colors beautifully. I also love the graphic style. It presents a very modern finish.

Think beyond red, orange, yellow, and brown. This berry nail polish with gold accent nail is very fall-ish. Then we add in the leaf nail art.
