20 Cool Nail Designs

BEAUTY

Summer is going by so fast, but part of us is looking forward to all those little things that come with the autumn season: crunchy leaves, cozy sweaters, leather jackets, steamy beverages, and of course, pumpkin-flavored everything.

When it comes to nail trends, fall is all about going dark and bold. Darker shades of brown, green, purple, and red are popular choices for fall nail art. September 23 is almost here, so it’s time to swap out our bright, summery nail colors for moodier ones. Our list will give you plenty of chic nail design ideas. Enjoy!
