You could do a few stripes of two or more of these colors or just have one solid.


Black or darker nails have always been a fabulous fashion statement ideal for the fall or winter months. However, this Fall Swarovski crystal gems in different hues and colors glistening on your dark nail polish are all the rage.

Highly recommend this look with a little black dress or black sweater and some cute boots. Either way, this is definitely as sparkly as 2018!



Another Runway look for the Autumn 2018 season is cheetah-licious. You can mimic this look by painting or by wrapping your nails in cheetah patterns. However, the original runway pattern was cheetah pattern pinkish purple and magenta. For this specific nail acrylic look, you can get them from Jeremy Scott and Miss Pop Nails who supported the original pattern for the runway. If you thought your cheetah blouse, purse or jewelry was fab just wait until you try these sexy Fall nails. Betsey Johnson herself is jealous she didn’t think about it!

Tanya Taylor sported a fashionable runway look that proved to everyone that French Mani’s don’t have to be traditional or boring. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good French manicure look, but it’s nice to throw in some color or switch it up once in a while. For a punk or alternate Fall modern look try the white tips with a sexy dark plum on the rest of the nail. If you want to make this look your own and not copy Tanya Taylor completely get funky and creative! Try something Fall-ish like black and orange. Could you see some orange nails with black tips or vice versa? Talk about the perfect look for fall. Get creative, have fun and remember French manicures don’t have to be traditional. They can be downright funky!



Speaking of non-traditional French manicure’s Cushnie Et Ochs took another avenue on the French manicure for this Autumn as well. Cushnie Et Ochs used some Essie nail polish for the base as a nude or a white coat. Then Cushnie ET Ochs dipped the ends of the fingernails in glitter but spaced the glitter pieces out to give it an ombre effect. You don’t just have to have ombre hair, now you can have ombre nails to match!
