“Serpent” Nails, Crimson-Colored Swirls, & 20 More Dark Red Nail Ideas For Fall

With the last few days of summer ahead and New York Fashion Week well underway, all of the cozy fall vibes and buzzy trends are coming in hot. And when it comes to the manicure looks to watch for the cooler months ahead? Well, there are two distinct camps beginning to emerge.

For some, their go-to nails are kept understated, minimal, and very much in the line with the “quiet luxury” aesthetic — which means “your nails but better” shades of neutral nail polish are a must. On the complete other end of the spectrum lives a “more is more” mindset, and is filled with 3D details, chromatic finishes, coquette-ish balletcore ribbons, mosaic nails, and the like.

No matter your personal mani mantra, one thing is for certain: Shades of red are having their main character moment, with A-listers like Megan Fox, Sydney Sweeney, Emily Ratajkowski, getting in on the bold look.

“While a red nail polish hue stain lends a more stubborn mark, there are a multitude of ways to keep your nail beds stain-free,” Nadine Abramcyk, co-founder of teneoverten, tells Bustle. “A reliable base coat is non-negotiable, [and] consistent nail hydration will also prevent residual dye.” If you need a recommendation, try The Rose Oil, an easy option for on-the-go usage.
