V-Effect Nail Art
Our talon-inspired design is as fierce and sexy as a killer pair of stilettos, but much easier to wear!
Snakeskin Nail Art
Jewel-like emerald and smoldering oxblood combine in this reptilian mani from Chalkboard Nails. The best part: Unlike a bag, snakeskin nails cost only pennies—and no animals are harmed.
Ikat Nail Art
Jess of Lacquology used striping polish and q-tips to whip up this seriously stylish ikat nail art. It’s perfect for world travelers—or anyone with a bohemian bent.
Block of Gold
The Dainty Squid
These stunningly simple nails from Kaylah of The Dainty Squid remind us of early autumn sunlight—and the toffee-yellow base color is fresh and unexpected.
Racing Stripe Nail Art
Sporty details (think shrunken jerseys, team numbers and racing stripes) are a strong fall trend, and translate beautifully into nail art.
Sparkling Sunset Nail Art
Nail artist Polly Polish layered intense gold sparkle (a mix of glitter and glequins) over rich orange-red foil. The result: High-carat haute couture for our nails!

Proving lacy looks don’t have to be pastel to be pretty, The Nailasaurus stamped coppery designs onto almost-black nails.
Blogger Maegan Tintari mixed three shimmering shades to create an unusually avant-garde pattern—it’s reminiscent of the lines on an earthquake meter!
Dripping Nail Art
This seductive mani starts with French tips in oxblood red, and finishes with dripped details any vampire would love.
Outline Nail Art
A far cry from summer’s playful looks, these outlined, studded nails from Syl and Sam mean business (and help us delay our craving for a new studded handbag.)
Stained Glass Nail Art
Magenta and eggplant are autumn’s biggest shades—Pantone calls the colors “Vivacious” and “Acai,” and this design from Manicurator swirls them into a stunning autumn melange.
Foliage Nail Art
Watch the colors change…on your nails! We’re smitten with this intricate design created by Chelsea of The Nail Network. To get the look, follow her tips for sponging on the leaves and painting on the branches.
