Raise your hand if fall is your season? And speaking of hands, let’s talk about nail art for a sec—we may be biased here, but we think it’s the ultimate autumnal accessory. This season rich color palettes meet sleek minimalist details for designs you can even master yourself at home, if you choose. Behold, eight freshly picked options for you to wear from now through December.

Soft Metallic Sweeps

Here’s an easy way to transition your tips to fall: Paint the top half of your nails a deep emerald green (or navy blue) and add a diagonal swoop of gold polish across your nail for a flourishing finish.

Pumpkin Spiced Mani

For all of our low-key ladies out there who are looking for something that’s subtly seasonal (and less-in-your-face fall), try outlining the edges of your nails in a shiny copper.

Cookies and Creme Mani

ICYMI: The gradient mani is still going strong. As the weather cools, we’re feeling a tonal palette of white, gray and black (to match every knit sweater we own).

Rose Mélange Mani

Pretty, not precious is how we’d describe this mélange of pink polish. To replicate the look at home, start with a base coat of a creamy rose. Next, add a few metallic pink details on the tops, bottoms or sides of your nails. Finish with a squiggle of chunky gold wherever your heart desires.

Lipstick Nails

Move over squoval nails and almond tips. Editorial nail artist Park Eunkyung (aka Unistella) has created a new nail shape that’s inspired by a fresh tube of lipstick. Filed at a diagonal slant and topped with shades of crimson, it’s the sexiest mani of the season.

Electric Matte Mani

We know what you’re thinking: A cobalt blue mani is nothing new. But try adding a matte topcoat over it and you’ve got yourself a new classic.

Scalloped detail

Like jewelry for your nails. Paint a small corner of each tip a rich terra-cotta and outline it in a thin strip of gold.

Get the look: Essie Nail Polish in “Rocky Rose” ($9) and “Stop Look and Glisten” ($9)

Art Deco Nails

Calling all fans of the French tip: Try it with a straight edge and two contrasting shades for a more modern spin.
