Christina Grant, a nail technician and hand model, has provided her expertise below on which colors and art styles will be trending this fall.  A woman with her finger on the pulse and polish always on her fingers, Grant is an entrepreneur who launched her own nail business, Manicurist Anonymous.

She's also a parts model, meaning her hands are worth their weight in gold,  and her hand modeling work can be seen in editorial and advertising.

FALL NAIL TRENDS  from Christina Grant

Nail Art

  • All different variations of french manicures (there are SO many!) and negative space are definitely here to stay as they’re so customizable and can cater to any nail enthusiast. 
  • Mismatched - this ranges on the scale from minimal to super graphic. Dainty dots, thin lines, flames, stars, and even rhinestones are all contributing to fall nail trends.
  • Glitter - From an accent nail to the whole set; glitter is one of the easiest ways to spice up a manicure. 

Nail Colors 

  • Playing with contrasting colors and nail power couples, like brights (neon yellows and greens) and neutrals (nude tones), will be a reoccurring theme.
  • Deep coral and amberish-orange shades always have a spot in the fall nail line up!
  • We'll see deep blues this fall (navy is my favorite!) as well which offset the brighter tones and add soft drama to the nail different from black or a classic red nail.
