As we transition into colder seasons, it’s safe to predict that fall nail colors will also shift to darker colors. But why not keep a bit of summer alive with a fall nail look that gives a nod to summer with bold flowers and is easy to create at home?


Celebrity nail technician Hang Nguyen, who’s known for setting nail trends, created this whimsical look that’s super simple to recreate at home.
