Here is an easy fall nail art idea using gel polish and some glittery. The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, and pumpkin spice lattes are back on the menu. It can only mean one thing: autumn is here!

This tutorial is a simple yet chic fall nail art idea that you can easily recreate at home. With just a few supplies and a little bit of time, you can have an Instagram-worthy manicure that will get you in the spirit of the season!

Also, this fall nail art idea is using gel polish that needs to be cured under a UV lamp. If you are following along with regular nail polish, just skip the cure instructions and wait until each layer is dried before going on to the next step.

Easy Fall Nail Art Design

Step 1

Prep the nail tip by gently buffing off any shine. Make sure that all residue has been cleaned off with a lint free wipe with some isopropyl alcohol. If you are using nail tips that are already prepped for gel polish, you can skip this step.

Step 2

Apply a base coat and cure for 30 seconds under a UV lamp

Step 3

Paint each nail with different fall colors of your choice. Make sure the nails are fully covered with a light layer. Smooth the gel polish out so that you have a super smooth finish. Cure for 30 seconds.

Step 4

Apply a second coat of the fall color. Cure for 30 seconds. You now have the base colors all ready for the next step. These colors are really pretty and perfect for the base of a fall nail.

If you do not have this exact set, that's ok. Just use a similar color from a gel set that you already have.

Step 5

Add glitter accents.

Now you can go ahead and add the glitter polish to the bottom part of each nail and cure each one for 30 seconds. It's much easier to apply with an ombre nail art brush. If you do not have an ombre brush, you can use what nail art brushes you have on hand.

Step 6

Thoroughly cover the nail with a glossy or matte top coat and do a final cure for 60 seconds.

What a gorgeous fall leaf idea. Fall is the perfect time to get creative with your nails. With DIY nails, you can let your nails show off your personality and style.
