Choose Your Fall Mani!


Posted on October 14 2022


The best fall nail trends are going head-to-head to see who will come out on top! We're rounded up some of the season's hottest nail trends and we're leaving it up to YOU to decide the winners. From velvet nails to glazed donut nails, matte top coats to glossy top coats, it's time for you to pick your ultimate fall look! Ready to put these fall faves to the test?

Long Nails vs Short Nails

As you're probably aware, we now carry a wide variety of professional nail tips and extensions in many shapes and lengths from brands including Apres, Kiara Sky, Harmony Gelish, CND & more. Nail extensions are a great alternative to acrylic because they essentially apply and remove the same way you'd remove any soft gel. They offer flexibility, strength, and are lightweight, so they'll feel pretty close to your natural nails.

Long Nail Extensions

Longer nail extensions help elongate the fingers and also act as a perfect base for nail art. We have long nail extensions & tips available in square, stiletto, coffin & round.

Short Nail Extensions

Maybe you prefer to keep your look more natural. Short nail extensions are great for those who want to maintain a more natural length to their nails but looking for some added strength and durability. We offer short nail extensions in the following shapes: square, stiletto, coffin & round.

Creme Nails vs Shimmer Nails

We typically see shimmery and metallic shades become especially popular during the last half of the year because of the holiday season. However, we want to you prefer classic cremes, or shimmery metallics & glitters? Let us know!

Creme Nail Colors

Creme Nail Colors

It could be considered the most "traditional" nail polish formula. What's great about creme colors is that they apply smoothly, evenly, and typically only require 1-2 coats for full coverage. The color pictured above is "Claydreaming" from the OPI Fall Wonders Collection. 

Shimmer Nail Colors

Shimmer + Metallic Nail Colors

Shimmery and metallic nail colors help add dimension and extra shine to your manicure. Opal and pearlescent nail colors have been especially popular this season, thanks to the glazed donut nail trend. Magnetic nail polish has also taken off with the velvet nail trend. Cirque Colors and KBShimmer offer a wide range of gorgeous holographic and metallic nail colors! The shade pictured above is "Cave The Way" from the OPI Fall Wonders Collection.

Matte Nails vs Glossy Nails

Matte top coats are especially popular during the fall seasons, so we want to you stick with the trends or remain loyal to your favorite top coat? Matte nails are chic and it's nice to change up your look every once in a while, right? You can even get creative and mix both matte and glossy textures in your nail art designs (i.e. the classic French manicure). 

Matte Nails

Matte Nails

Although matte top coats aren't formulated to last quite as long as their shinier counterparts, it's still a trend, so use it as an opportunity to change up your look. PRO TIP: Since matte formulas tend to dry quicker, apply in thin layers and allow each layer to completely dry before applying the next. Also, since most chipping starts at the tip of the nail, cap the edge with your matte top coat when applying for added protection. 

Glossy Top Coats

Glossy Nails

Think of your traditional top coat. Maybe it's CND Vinylux Long Wear Top Coat. Maybe it's the OPI GelColor Stay Shiny Top Coat. It's always great practice to apply a top coat after applying your color to increase your manicure's longevity. Not only does a glossy top coat lock in the color, it adds additional shine, giving you that "just-stepped-out-of-the-salon" look & feel. 

Velvet Nails vs Glazed Donut Nails

This is the ULTIMATE showdown. It's the battle of two of the HOTTEST nail trends we've seen this season. Velvet nails versus glazed donut nails. Have you tried both of these trends? Which one is YOUR favorite? Be sure to let us know! 

Velvet Nails

Velvet Nails

Velvet nails have been popular for a while now, but we started seeing more of this trend around the beginning of the fall season. If you've never heard of the velvet nail trend before, it's essentially what it sounds like. It's achieved by creating a velvet-like effect using magnetic nail polish. This polish includes tiny magnetic particles that are activated by a wand, so you can create your own unique look. Last year, OPI released their Velvet Vision collection, which had 6 magnetic gel polish colors. The color shown above, "Teal Transe," is from that collection.

Glazed Donut Nails

Glazed Donut Nails

Thanks to Hailey Bieber and her nail artist, the glazed donut nail trend grew to instant popularity a couple of months ago. The look itself is very simple, which is probably why it became so popular (you can probably recreate it right now with what you have). Essentially it's a white or sheer base, topped with an iridescent or pearlescent topper (which creates that glazed effect). The trend was so popular that it's now extended into the fall season with a twist -- instead of using a white color as the base, use a brown color, and you get the "chocolate glazed donut nail" trend. The look above was created using Essie Expressie "Cold Brew" and Expressie FX "Oil Slick".
