Dark colors like black, navy and oxblood were shown on several designer’s runways like Zac Posen, to match the mood of the cooler colors and season. Nails were kept short, filed to almost an squoval or squared off oval shape which has been popular for seasons. Add a top coat to capture this trend for Fall!

The classic French mani was given a twist and made modern. Designers like Rodarte combined neutral tones, adding a strip of metallic color at the tip for an unexpected surprise. An easy trend for you to capture, you can build on your existing color by adding a strip of color at the tips of your nails.

And while we’re on the subject of 2 toned manis, moon manis (or half-moon manicures), were also spotted. Another variation on this trend is adding using a single color, leaving the half moon area clean, resulting in a ‘negative space’ moon mani. The shaping of the color alone gives a fun surprise, also very easy to recreate using your favorite Fall shades.

Embellished and artistic nails have been having a moment and the fall runways were no exception. Designers like Libertine and Nicholas K went for show stopping nails featuring jewels, gems, glitter and even studs for a little edge. Consider trying a similar look by adding a few coats of glitter polish halfway across the nail. Or if you’re feeling a little more playful, add a stud or small pearl or 2 (or 3!) on the moon area of the nail for your own wow moment.

Which look will you be trying this season?
