It’s time to retire the palm tree mani and look for something a little moodier. These 11 Instagram nail art looks offer plenty of autumnal inspiration from some of the internet’s most trend-setting manicurists.
1. Nails Jewels
Upgrade your go-to nude manicure with some three-dimensional jewels, like nail artist Jessica Washick. Pile on as tack of rings to amplify the effect.
2. Black Stripe
A taupe manicure looks so much cooler with a thin black line drawn along the side.
3. Golden Hour
A nature motif with touches of gilded gold evokes the feeling of fall without cheesy pumpkins or falling leaves.
4. Rosé Chrome

Rosé season is over—but you don’t have to ditch it entirely with a chrome rose-gold manicure.
5. Nuevo French
A fresh take on the French manicure: white tips with a black half-moon traced along the cuticle.
6. Dark Florals
Nail artist Nina Park was inspired by a Gucci floral print for this moody autumn manicure.
Don’t have long nails? Try a design like high-gloss flames, which don’t require a ton of real estate to make a big impact.
8. Logo Nails
9. Scribble Scribble
A pinky nude manicure gets an unexpected twist from thin, black scribbles. The mode doodle-like—the better.
10. Black Marble
A white marble manicure screams summer, but a black marble manicure is ideal for the cooler months.
11. Super Graphic
Pair glossy black nails with two accent designs incorporating trippy black-and-white designs.
