If you know me, you know I take self care serious. I love getting my hair done, getting a mani/pedi and I loveeeee a good facial and massage. I always love having a cute nail design on my fingernails. A manicure is no longer something you only do before a tropical vacation or a special occasion. Treating yourself is so emotionally important for women — we are all doing more and have less time to unplug. I know a lot of women that consider the spa to be a phone free zone. Even though I am not one of those women, I can appreciate that. Even doing your own nails can have a strange meditative power. Mindfulness — the idea of staying in the now. We’re addicted to making to-do lists and worrying about the future. Our self-care routines help keep us in the present. So if taking time out to do your nails — or get a massage or do a home facial — helps you mellow out and feel sane for a sec, why not embrace it?
Below, are some of my favorite fall manicure designs. I know a lot of women are excited for fall fashions, so its time to start getting those nail fashions popping too! If you know of any other cute designs you want to share, drop the link in the comment section below. You an also check out the “dope nails” section of my app for more!
Negative Space Nails – theses are awesome because only decorating the tips makes nail growth in between appointments nearly undetectable.
Bedazzled Nails- some people like to save funky nails for holidays or special occasions, while others bedazzle any day of the week.
Clear Nails- these are my new fav. I was going to get clear yellow nails next time I get my nails done.

Patterns & Colors- this funky mix makes your nails the center of attention!
Remixed French- I have been seeing this so much lately, and I love the different play on colors.
Studded Manicure- this is one of my favs! It is like accessories for your nails.
Chrome on Nude- the chrome is always a fall staple as is the nude. Put them both together for some magic!

Floral for the Fall- floral designs are always in and I love how the flowers are on the clear nails to make them pop more.
