The color brown is synonymous with comfort and warmth. It is an earthy tone that is strongly associated with all things cozy. It’s funny to say that brown is actually one of my favorite colors, but I find myself drawn to it over and over.
Brown is a comforting and neutral shade that looks good with almost any color combination. Brown nails are a great option if you want everyday nails that will go with almost any outfit.
Brown nails can be super simple or you can incorporate incredible designs. Right now, I’m loving brown tips and brown heart designs. I also love the idea of a brown manicure for fall.
Here are some great ideas that you can incorporate into your own nail art.
This is the most simple version of the look. It’s classic but also trendy because it’s a spin on the regular French manicure. You can do simple brown tips (which is actually what I have right now), or you can do brown tips with a more intensive design. See the photos below for inspiration.
Nude Heart Designs
This look reminds me of when you see heart designs on white tombstones in cemeteries. It’s really pretty and definitely one of my favorite designs right now! Paint a light nude heart over deep brown nails. You’ll see lots of example photos down below, too.
Brown Heart Designs
This is really similar to the nude heart design, but instead of having some color at the top you have brown. I personally love this look because it’s simple enough that anyone can do it! I recommend doing these brown heart designs over lighter brown or nude nails so the hearts really pop.
Brown Tips With Dots
This look is very simple and clean, but also really cute. It’s perfect for an everyday fall outfit because it has just enough pop to be interesting without being too out there.
Geo Heart Designs
This look is my favorite fall design so far! I love how these nails are very simple but have enough detail that they’re interesting without being difficult. It’s perfect for fall because it is very warm, but still fun.
Abstract Brown Nails
This is another very simple and clean design that is perfect for fall. I love abstract nails, but there are so many different ways to use abstract designs. I included tons of inspiration photos below with various types of abstract brown nails.
Chocolate Brown With Gold Details
Here is another way you can incorporate brown nails into an autumn outfit; gold details! These chocolate brown nails are super cute with swirly little gold dots over top of them which makes them perfect for fall since it’s time to break out the gold accessories.
Different Shades On Each Nail
For this look, you use different shades of brown instead of different colors on each nail. I think this is a really simple and clean design that’s still pretty unique, plus it’s easy to do at home.
Plaid Brown Nails
I’m really into plaid nails right now, but I especially love the plaid brown look. They can be a bit complicated to do but they’re totally worth it!
Marble Brown Nails
If you like a chic and subtle design, you may want to try marble brown nails. Check out the photos below for inspiration!
