Floral Nail Art for Fall Is Pretty Groundbreaking

Floral patterns are everywhere in spring, but they can really make a statement in fall. Well, at least when it comes to your nails. This season we’re all about vivid, experimental florals replacing our usual rich ombres and neons.

Monotone floral nail art designs with scanty details and tropical accents are very in right now. And we just can’t get enough pastel peonies and daisies decorating our digits. Then there are the mismatched nails with a single floral finger and flower patterns in complementary shades for a refined finish. If you want to team your bouquet with other kitschy designs, like tie-dye or spotted tips, go with an understated color palette.

Ready for some fall floral inspo? Here are the coolest floral nail art ideas out there.
