Going to the nail salon isn’t an option for everyone in the age of COVID-19. And even if it is, some of us feel more comfortable doing our own nails from now on. So what’s a nail art lover to do? Ahead, we rounded up the best fall 2020 nail trends—from the runways to Instagram—that you can totally DIY. All you need is a few key nail polishes and a little imagination (okay, and some polish remover too) to create these must-have nail looks for the fall.
1. Pastel Burst
Why save pastels for spring? If you need some colors to brighten the gloomy mood that colder weather brings, this fun collage of pastel colors will do the trick.
2. Jigsaw Plaid
Nothing says fall like plaid. Elevate the look by painting the design partially on each nail like a puzzle piece for something a little less preppy.
3. Winter White
At LaQuan Smith, models walked down the runway in long, coffin-shaped nails painted in bright white polish with a glossy finish. Clean and crisp, it’s the perfect look during the color months.
4. Rocker Glam
We can always count on serious nail art at The Blonds. Here, models wear embellished jewels against a black backdrop for a dramatic nail look perfect for fall.
5. Rocker Glam
It was all about fun party vibes at Alice + Olivia. Inspired by 1970’s rock glam era, models wore black matte press on nails, decorated with pretty stones for some added shine.

6. Black Magic
Nothing makes a statement like an all-black manicure. Done in high gloss or matte, a black manicure is chic and sophisticated with a little edge. Here, a model backstage at Philipp Plein with almond-shaped black nails.
7. Black Magic
Looking to take your black mani up a notch? Try this geometric pattern that you can achieve with just a few pieces of nail tape.
8. Black Magic
Not feeling an entirely black nail? Add squiggles—painted along the edges of your nails—to a basic nude manicure.
9. Super Graphic
Nail art that’s intricate can be impossible to DIY—so embrace big, bold, graphic shapes instead. We love this mix of polishes with a few nails accentuated by big and colorful dots.
10. Super Graphic
Backstage at Rag and Bone‘s fall show, models showed off just how cool a black and white graphic manicure can look.
11. Super Graphic

The French manicure has been undergoing a modern resurgence the last few years. If you’re still cautious about adopting the trend, try this dainty and delicate version from Betina Goldstein.
13. The New French
At Moschino, the French manicures were done in fun and bubbly shades of candy pastels.
14. The New French
Accent a classic manicure with a striking double red French manicure. The finer the liner, the more modern it will look.
15. Logo Mania
At Pucci, nails were accented with a single “p” that was a more minimalist take on the always-cool logo nail trend.
16. Well Embellished
A classic pale pink manicure gets an elegant and fun upgrade with various multi-colored rhinestones.
17. Well Embellished
At the Monse show, manicurist Miss Pop paired a matte berry-red nail polish with a pierced ring at the tip for a little punk element.
