Many of us can’t wait to jump into fall, even if we don’t feel like it outside yet. Whether you can already start wearing sweaters and scarves or not, you can get into the fall mood with fall nail designs.
Using fall nail colors and nail art is an easy way to accessorize for the season – and you don’t have to spend a ton of money or salon time to get the look! While you can certainly take inspiration from the designs we’ve selected in this article, each can actually be purchased as press-ons on Etsy.
These fall snap nails were curated in collaboration with content creator Thalita Ferraz from HerBones.com. Discover other fashion and beauty finds on her blog!
1. Brown and White French Nails ($33)
I love French tips, and this fall-inspired version kills. Dark brown pops against pure white for a classic look you can wear anywhere. These elegant nails are a mix between a stiletto shape and an almond shape, although the seller offers a variety of styles of nail shapes in this design.
2. 3D Matte Fall Foliage Nails ($40)
Textured leaves and acorns bring fall vibes in this yellow to brown faded manicure. This design looks flawless on these matte coffin nails, although other shapes and lengths are available at the same price.
3. Nude nails with pumpkin accents and gold rhinestones ($24+)
This peachy nude color brings a feminine touch to fall. Gold stripes, rhinestones, pumpkins with curly vines and leafy fronds pop against the soft background. Due to the neutral tone, they can be worn for Halloween or Thanksgiving.
3. Fall Leaves and Rose Gold Glitter Nails ($22+)
These nails give a snowball effect! Metallic red, gold and green foils are suspended among rose gold glitter against a medium peach base color. The end result is multi-dimensional and seems to defy gravity. You can order them in whatever length and shape you prefer, but this seller also offers a set of all four sizes if you’re worried about fit.
4. Spooky Spiderweb Stiletto Halloween Nails ($25.50+)
It wouldn’t be a fall nail without at least a few Halloween nail options! Matte black stiletto nails look witchy and wonderful with this glossy web design. The seller mentions in the listing that this design can be customized with different colors, if you prefer! We think orange and red could also be a great option.
5. Scream Halloween Nails ($27+)
Needless to say, these are the perfect nails for Halloween. While it might be extreme to wear them all fall long, die-hard fans of the classic horror film “Scream” may not be able to pull these nails off. They come in different shapes, but the stylus really sells the mask design!
6. Black and Pink Ombre Nails ($34)
An ombré nail design is a stunning representation of the changing seasons. I love the transition from black to blush in this set.
7. Sweater Texture Nails ($24.40)
Speaking of sweaters, this beige matte nail set is adorable for fall. I love the textured effect, perfect for pairing with your own cable knit sweater and comfy leggings. This design is so cute on short nails, but really makes a statement in longer styles.
8. Orange Plaid Nails ($23)
Nothing reminds me of fall weather more than plaid. I love these cozy flannel nails, reminiscent of the iconic Burberry design.
9. Fall Flower Negative Space Nails ($40+)
Negative-spaced nails have recently gained popularity, which means using the bare nail as part of the design. This set has fall flowers painted on a clear nail to pull off this trend.
Although these snap nails may be more expensive than what you can find at the drug store, you can customize the shape and length of most designs and reuse them once removed with care! Some of these fall nail designs would cost you over $80 at the salon, so it’s a great budget alternative that you can do at home. Or test your skills by recreating the designs yourself!
