Michelle Grossman

With the official first day of fall being just days away, it’s high time to start thinking about the upcoming season’s nail trends. We all know that darker colors are great for autumn, but that doesn’t mean we can’t rock some more vibrant ones, too. Whether you’re playing it cool with one solid color, or taking a dip in the nail art pool, one thing is for sure: Your nails shouldn’t be bare for fall.

To help you get into the nail art spirit, we’ve pulled some of our favorite easy nail art looks for fall straight from the runway. Take a look, and let us know which design you’ll be recreating!
