Let’s first start with some nail art I made myself this summer (imagine, sitting in a scorching hot office over 30 degrees then making this autumn nail art, LOL) with different kinds of autumn leaves.
Step by step fall nail designs
I used regular nail decals (nail tattoos) and cool nail stickers I bought on Aliexpress for this nail art.
By the way, the quality was not really fantastic, but I often liked the result anyway.
Old pink nail polish paired with gold leaves: these are my favorite fall colors! Whether they are fashion colors or not, I often wear old pink in autumn, preferably combined with a bit of gold or cream color.
By the way, be very careful when you take the nail stickers off the sheet: the quality was not fantastic and if you are not careful and just try to take them off with your fingers, the nail stickers often tear.
This was also one of my big favorite nail arts I’ve already made for autumn: a white background with colored autumn leaves.
Ideal if you still want a colorful nail look that doesn’t feel too wintery or autumnal yet. Ideal during an Indian summer!
Khaki nail art with leaves
Khaki green or sage green are popular fashion colors this year, so I also recommend you to definitely wear them on your nails.
These colors combine very nicely with gold and other autumn colors.
Orange autumn leaves
This time I didn’t use nail stickers, but nail decals. These are a kind of nail decals that you put in a small bowl of water (take the plastic off first, though). Then the decal slides right off the paper and you can apply it to your nails.
Preferably, I apply the nail decals on a light background (like here, white) because that’s how you see the colors best. Finish with a coat of topcoat (I prefer to use Sèche Vite) and your autumn nail look is ready!
Brown nail art
In autumn we often revert to more typical autumn colors that we just barely wear in summer and spring.
So this autumn nail art look is one with brown nail polish (from the new Essence gel collection).
Dark red nail polish with gold
Another autumn nail art design with gold, this time on a dark red base. For this, start with a few coats of basecoat first: you’re really going to need this to protect your nails very well.
Specially the red shades of nail polish from cheaper brands, dare to leave some color on your nails. If you do not want stains on your nails or yellow nails, apply 3 coats of basecoat on your nails before you start coloring!
Also, always let your nail polish dry very well before you start working with stickers and nail decals: otherwise, you’ll make dents in your nail polish and you definitely don’t want that.
Apply the stickers and also finish with at least 1 coat of quick-drying topcoat, depends a bit on how many coats of nail polish you had to use.
Chocolate brown nail polish
Chocolate brown is another one of those colors we don’t often see in nail polish trends, but did you know that this color is actually one of the nail polish trends 2022 right now? Really!
We’re choosing plenty of yummy, coffee colors this year. Again, I worked with a fun gold nail sticker on the chocolate brown nails, really ideal to combine like this, I think!
