There is nothing like the feeling of a fresh manicure. It not only gives you a kick in your step, but it is a great way to take some time to relax and rejuvenate yourself.

Black Nails

This is not a new trend, but it is a staple. Just like a little black dress, a black nail will never go out of style. If you are looking to join the cool girl club hop on the sleek and glossy black nail trend. If you are looking to change it up a bit, add a design to one or two nails!


Just like a black nail, a nude is a classic and a staple. Remember though, nude does not mean a boring beige. Find a shade you like and add a shiny topcoat to give it a sleek and shiny finish!

French Forever

The ever-classic French manicure has seen a major resurgence and it is sticking around for fall. Change it up by making the tip a darker shade like hunter green, navy blue or even black!

If you’re feeling risky you could even do a double-line French with two different colours!

If you are looking for a fancier manicure do a French with a gold tip, the gold makes it extremely luxe and sophisticated!


A great way to transition from the hot months to the cooler months is metallics. The warm burgundies and oranges are a staple for fall but you can get sick of them quickly, spice things up with your favourite fall colours with a metallic finish.

A mix of French, vintage, and modern. A bit of a twist on a French manicure with a graphic swoop!


Mismatch nail art is hot hot hot. This can quickly get quite pricey at a nail salon. A great way to achieve this at home is with nail stickers or press on nails!
