"The nail trends of Fall 2023 you don't want to miss."

I don't know about you, but I'm totally ready to welcome every Autumn 2023 nail trend with open arms. I've already started curating my fall shopping wishlist and swapped out my summer scents for those cozy autumn fragrances. Even though the days are getting shorter, I absolutely adore the fall season - it's the perfect time to get creative, whether it's with fashion or beauty.

Autumn is that magical time when manicures truly shine. While there are no strict rules about nail polish shades for any season, I personally find myself drawn to the rich, moody colors that accompany the fall. I mean, who can resist the allure of a glossy, deep red polish? It's an eternal classic that exudes style year after year. 

1. Dark French nails

The classic French manicure is an all-time favorite. But here's a twist for the fall-winter season - why not opt for a deeper, more mysterious take on this timeless look? Instead of the traditional white tips, go for shades like rich black, warm chocolate brown, or deep forest green for your French tips. Using a dark nail polish or gel to achieve these dark French manicures is a seamless way to transition into this Autumn 2023 nail trend with style.

 2. Latte Art

Remember the latte makeup trend that took TikTok by storm earlier this year? Well, it's no surprise that latte nails are now on the rise. This trend leans heavily into warm brown shades, creating a neutral and versatile look that's ideal for the transition into Fall 2023 Nail Trends. Think shades reminiscent of caramel, toffee, and rich chocolate.

3. Wine Nails

Sure, dark red nail polish is always in for fall, but this season, think of it as a sophisticated take on the gothiccore trend. Imagine a range of red shades, from rich rusty tones to deep, velvety violet-berry hues. It's all about adding that touch of elegance to your fall nail game.

4. Gothcore nails

Gothcore has taken the fashion world by storm, from the runways of Maison Margiela to Dior and Proenza Schouler. To rock this Autumn 2023 nail trend on your nails, you have options: go for an all-over matte black for a sleek, minimalist vibe, add a matte top coat for an extra edge, or get creative with a mix of both for a truly gothic-inspired nail look. 🖤

5. Galaxy Nails: A Stellar Comeback

It's a blast from the past with a modern twist. Remember the galaxy prints and mustache mania of 2010? Well, this fall, galaxy nails are making a triumphant return, but this time, they're all grown up. Instead of glossy finishes, think deep, jewel-toned hues. Get creative by painting a mix of shades and blending them with a nail brush to achieve a mesmerizing watercolor effect.

6. Matte nails
