Nail Alert: Fall Nail Trends to Finish Your Look


We all know that the accessories, makeup, and hair can enhance and add those finishing touches to any look. From hair extensions to the right eye shadow to a beautiful scarf, the small touches are important. Your nails also add a touch of glam, sass, and a polished (pun intended) look to any outfit. Imagine a perfectly paired outfit on a woman with jagged, broken nails. Even in this small, subtle element, an entire outfit can be ruined. Here are a few alerts on fall trends to keep all your outfits trendy and finished.

Colors this fall are dark and stormy with touches of neutral colors to add glamour and excitement. Whether your stylistic choices are sassy or subtle, fall offers the perfect nail color for you. Deep red, berry, navy, and charcoal are always classic choices, but if you’d like to jazz them up, consider adding neutral elements like gold flecks or polka dots (yes, polka dots!) for a trendy twist. Chrome metals are also popular this fall. Classic chromes like gold, silver, and copper are good choices for ladies with classic style. For the more adventurous, a metallic peacock blue or a punch of purple can add just the right statement.

Wear your nails short and square with rounded corners. These nails look manicured and maintained but still offer enough space to showcase popular fall colors. Trim your cuticles and snip any hangnails. You may want to file down your nails every few weeks to prevent them from getting too long and breaking. Keeping the perfect polish on them at all times also helps prevent breaking.

To make your nail color last, use a bottom coat the helps the polish stick to your nails – and can also help protect them through color changes. Apply one coat of polish, let it partially dry, and then apply another for maximum, smooth coverage. Apply a glossy topcoat after the color is fully dried to finish the color and protect it. Consider applying another top coat every few days to extend the life of your polish.

  1. My Baby Doll loves nail polish of any type! And she is not even two yet. Can you imagine how it will be when she is a teenager?

  2. Great tips – my nails are short anyway so maybe i could grow them just a tich to give them rounded edges. Hair extensions, i would if i could … x

  3. I especially like bold colors, but I feel like all people see when they look at me are my nails…but I go bold anyway! My girls love bold too.

  4. I have noticed shorter nails are becoming more trendy right now than the longer ones of not so long ago. I like both. My daughter loves nail polish and I have about ten bottles stashed in great colors to put in her Christmas stocking.

    I love the picture of all the nail polish, it makes me feel like shopping. :)

  5. I have square shaped nails and I often play with different nail polish colors.
