This summer season’s biggest nail trend was the “glazed donut” manicure that dominated all of our feeds with its iridescent allure, made popular by Hailey Bieber. While it definitely had its moment, we don’t see this slowing down as it's an elevated form of the barely there, but perfectly polished nails that are eternally chic.

So what does fall have in store for us? 

Whether it’s your learn-as-you-go at-home manicure or the one hour of solace you get every few weeks with your nail technician, we are seeing moody hues like chocolatey brown and burnt orange colors pop up everywhere contrasted by mirror-like chrome.

Nail polish is the best way to experiment with trends and enhance a new look. Take a risk, make a bold choice, and if you change your mind, et voila! A simple wipe and you have a clean palette to experiment with again. 

Our pro tip is if you have a color in mind but want to keep it lighter, pair the classic French tip manicure with your color of choice.
