  • We're only one month into summer, but we've already started hearing about Fall nail trends.
  • We recently saw the return of minimalist beauty, and nail trends are sticking to that theme.
  • Think earthy tones, subtle nail art, and plenty of neutrals.

If summer is the Elle Woods of nail-polish colors — bright, fun, the perfect accoutrement to holding fuzzy pink pens — then fall is the Wednesday Addams. It's darker, moodier, and bold as hell . . . and definitely not traveling to Harvard Law School for a man.

Over the last few months, we've seen the return of minimalist beauty, and the upcoming season's biggest nail-polish trends are definitely sticking to that theme.

"This fall, we are going to see a lot of subtle nail art, from foils to dainty details like hearts and dots," Rachel Apfel Glass, founder of nail studio Glosslab, tells POPSUGAR. If you aren't a fan of nail art and like to keep things a little more classic, not to worry, Glass says: "As far as colors, neutrals including earthy browns and charcoal grays will be hugely popular."

Ahead, we break down the biggest nail trends you're going to see everywhere this fall. Keep scrolling to peep our predictions and shop the products needed to make your nails the envy of everyone in the room.
