We all love a beautiful set of flashy acrylic nails when we really want to show out and treat ourselves to some much needed self-pampering.
And while there’s nothing wrong with being extra and rocking nails that are on the bright and busy side, the nail trends for this fall are actually asking you to give shorter lengths and earthy, subtle tones a try.
If that’s a little too calm compared to what you usually go for, no worries! These natural nail trends are anything but boring. Just remember that sometimes, less is truly more. Get into these 5 natural nail trends sure to bring out your inner manicure minimalist this fall.
Abstract nails are typically very fun, with bright colors and geometric shapes characterizing the design. These nails in particular put a down-to-earth spin on the concept by crafting each nail with complementary flowing shapes in a warm, fall-inspired cinnamon brown.
Texture can be added to nails in a number of different ways; Jewels, beads, and even thick gels make for some neat nail accents. For this design, there’s a unique sand-like glitter to mimic gritty rock formations right on top of a creamy, nude base on her natural nails.
These nails give a real natural glam feel by using nude, muted tones to keep everything simple and classic, but adding fresh abstract designs to step the otherwise traditional french manicure-esque style up a notch. One of the stand out elements of these nails is in how well the foundational tan color complements the deep brown skin.
You know how we said “less is more” ? Well, this is especially true for this design where essentially only half the nail is done. Mint green isn’t a traditional fall color, however, it’s cool and muted enough to pull off when you feel like stepping outside of the box.
This Picasso-inspired design in tan and burnt sienna is not only perfect for the season, but its simplicity is ideal for those of you who like to do your natural nails at home. Even if you don’t do the faces, you still could lean into the beautifully warm, fall-ready color scheme.
