5 Ways to Achieve Flawless Fall Nail Style
1. Choose a shape
My favorite shape for fall is a longer almond, but I find that slightly squared off nails work well too.
Look at your natural nail shape and try to work with it.
2. Moisturize your cuticles
All of these photos below are flawless because each cuticle is moisturized. You definitely don’t want gorgeous nails with dry hands! Fall is one of those times when you really do need to up the moisturization.
3. Use a top coat
Whether you choose to go with a matte or gloss finish,
Matte has been really in for a few years but gloss is making a comeback this year. I think this is one of the rare times when you can’t go wrong with either!
4. Wear rings
If you’re at all a rings person, then I recommend wearing some gold or silver pieces with your newly painted nails. It really does make them shine!
5. Pair your fall nail colors with a complementary sweater or jacket
If you check out these inspiration fall nail colors photos, you’ll notice that each color pairs really well with whatever the girl is wearing.
Nails that lean towards a brown tone go well with a warm brown or cream sweater; black nails go great with the same while also looking good with grey sweater tones. Soft caramel nail colors will go with cream or white.
Basically, try to incorporate your nails into the color scheme of your outfit.
