Fall Nail Art Trends - How to create DIY Nail Designs for Fall

Nail polish colors this fall are less predictable, favoring smoky, moody, earthy colors that still represent the picturesque colors of fall but with a more subtle, referential twist. Muted yet unique tones like dusty red, brown, olive and blue are popular – these were used during the Michael Kors, Peter Do and Brandon Maxwell FW22 shows. Toned down moody colors look exquisite and stylish on short or long nails and are great for sweater weather season - they are ideal seasonal transitional colors. Team JINsoon created these ultimate DIY-friendly nail designs using these ultra cool tone colors.

Here are some simple nail art ideas using unique fall shades:
