Hottest Nail Trends for Fall

Written On 10/18/2021

Do you remember in 2006 when everyone and their mother was super into french manicures?

And sparkles? You could even spot a pre-prom glam a mile away thanks to perfectly manicured tips. Luckily, the early aughts are long gone but nail trends are just as prominent, if not more so now than ever. Seriously, even press on nails are back. But what exactly is everyone adorning their nails with this season? According to celebrity manicurist Julie Kandalec, founder of Julie K Nail Artelier in Manhattan, this season is all about jewel tones, rich hues, and texture. From the runway to the aisles of your favorite drug store, everyone is embracing the cozy comfort colors and textures of autumn. And we are def not mad about it. 

Julie, who has manicured prettyyyy much anyone and everyone, including celebs like Camila Cabello, Jessica Chastain, and Kate Bosworth, gave us the inside scoop on which colors and formulas are the best, even for nail newbies. 

Lights Lacquer recently announced their fall 2021 murder-mystery-inspired collection, “Who Did It?”, featuring rich, jewel tones, with sultry ornamented luxury and velvety silks to add to your eye-catching fall nail looks. If you’re looking for more inspo, check out romantic limited edition bundle Truly, Madly, Deeply in Love which includes colors reminiscent of fall foliage in the Lights Lacquer spectrum.

Another collection that is right on trend with a lot of chic, romantic shades are the CND Wild Romantics collection. Standouts for Julie are Verbena Velvet (deep plum) and Soft Flame (terracotta).

Mexi-Cocoa from MiniLuxe from the Fall Wanderlust collection: This red-toned brown pays tribute to everything there is to love about Mexico’s rich history of food and culture.
