4 Fall Nail Looks Experts Say Are Trending Big


With Labor Day behind us and a dip in temperatures approaching, it’s time to transition our closets, skin-care routines and manicures for fall. Lia Smith, OPI North American manager of education says fall’s nail trends will remind us of what we love most about the season: “Crackling logs in a fireplace, rich hot chocolate, deep night skies, cozy sweaters and the sparkle of the season.” Ahead, what to expect to see on everyone’s tips this fall.

Cozy Colors

“The shades that will be trending this fall will evoke warmth and convey rich tones, cozy comfort and a sense of calm,” says Smith. Galdina Jimenez, OPI North America education manager & capability, notes her clients are already asking for olive greens and rusty oranges, but says the two “big asks” as of late have been mustard yellow and navy blue. Get the look with OPI Midnight Mantra ($3) and Ochre to the Moon ($3), both part of the brand’s Fall Wonders Nail Lacquer Collection.

Earth Tones

For a more neutral take on deep hues, Hannah Lee, manicurist and content creator, says another look that is trending is a “coffee Skittle manicure,” which features a “range of coffee tones, from cream to a deep chocolate brown.” Lee favors shades like Sally Hansen’s Bare Dare ($6) and Mocha Me Crazy ($6); Smith reaches for the warm OPI Brown to Earth ($3), which she says “embodies warmth and depth.”
