Nothing signifies the arrival of fall like the official changing of your nail color (except, perhaps, taking a photo of said nails with a seasonal latte). Gear up for the crisp weather, sweater-centric outfits, and spooky vibes with the following six nail ideas that’ll have you ready for anything, no matter your vibe or nail shape. Go for long and red or bare with bold accents—you name it, there’s something you’ll want to try. Below, the biggest nail trends we’re loving for fall, plus the products that’ll help you achieve them.

Naked and Metallic

Bare nails are in—and so are metallics. The two paired together? Even better. Line your cuticles with some sparkle for an understated-yet-fun vibe.

Long, red nails will never go out of style—but they’re especially in for fall, if TikTok star-slash-nail aficionado Tinx has anything to say about it.

It’s back, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. You simply can’t go wrong with a classic French manicure, with a nude base and white tips.

If green isn’t your hue, why not opt for this mauve-y tan that Jennifer Lopez sported—for none other than her wedding to Ben Affleck?
