Nail master @jessicawashick knows everything about nails trends – and this beige & red manicure is no exception!

What is a good fall color for nails?
Want nails that scream “fall vibes”? Well, here are some killer colors to rock:
- First up, we’ve got deep burgundy. This shade is like sipping on a glass of fine wine while watching the leaves change. It’s classy and oh-so-sophisticated.
- Next, picture this: burnt orange. Reminds you of pumpkins and all things autumnal, right? Slap on this warm and vibrant hue for nails that scream fall fun.
- Feeling earthy? Olive green is the perfect choice. It’s a muted, natural green that pairs well with cozy sweaters and embraces those fall tones with elegance.
- Now let’s talk chocolate brown. Think cocoa by the fireside – it exudes warmth and coziness, making it ideal for matching any outfit in your fall wardrobe.
- Speaking of luxury, we can’t forget about plum–it’s deep, mysterious, and adds an air of elegance to your nails with just one stroke.
- If you want something bright but still screams fall spirit, mustard yellow should be your go-to color! Warm like sunflowers swaying in golden fields—it’ll make your nails pop!
- For a unique twist on classic shades, try out dark teal—a mesmerizing blue-green hue that brings those cool autumn nights to mind.
- And lastly (but definitely not least), rusty red—this reddish-brown wonder captures that rustic charm perfectly. Let’s embrace all things weathered!
Ultimately though when choosing nail colors for fall season experiment with different shades until you find the vibe that speaks to you loudest—we’ve got a whole palette waiting!
