Fall x Nails

We here at Haut Appetit just love trying out all sorts of different nail colors and trends. Probably the least committal of all fashion ventures, even the most out-there nail trends aren’t so daunting since we know we can swipe them away if need be. Here are our a smattering of our classic favorite fall colors as well as bolder, trendier options for Fall 2016.


Classic Colors

Bolder Trends

We’re taking cues from NYFW and taking wearable nail trends from the runway to the streets this autumn season! (And we say wearable because there were fur nails among other outlandish trends this year that popped up on the runway and as much as we love fashion – we’re not rocking fur nails any time soon.) Here are our favorite nail tones we can’t wait to try.



Marble nails showed up on models at Christian Siriano and we loved the grounded yet glamorous touch. Get the how-to from OPI:

Dripping Black & White

Athlesiure isn’t going anywhere and we don’t mind at all. We loved Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma collection right down to the dripping black and white nail art. Get the look using our favorite black shades from above and these white polish pens which make precision easy.

Metallics are one of those trends that come back every so often and seem just as fresh as they did the first time. We saw metallics at Creatures of the Wind among other designers. Here are shiny metal shades to try on yourself:
