The clocks have gone back, the trees are starting to change their leaves and donning a cosy jumper is now essential before venturing outside; yep, get your pumpkin spice at the ready because we’re officially in Autumn! 

So, pack your pastels and paintbox brights away; this season is all about rich jewel tones and autumnal hues. Alongside the beautiful burnt orange and burgundy colour palettes associated with autumn, this time of year lends itself perfectly to getting creative with autumn nail art designs. Looking for ideas? Here at Naio Nails, we’ve picked out five autumn gel nails and autumn acrylic nails to inspire you this season.

Starting off our list are these stunning autumnal nails! We love the way this warm wine shade beautifully complements the gold metallic of the leaves. This look is perfect if you’re looking for ideas for acrylic autumn nails to ask your nail technician for this season.

In need of a new lockdown hobby? You can also become a dab hand at acrylics at home with our acrylic starter sets and practice this look with our beautiful burgundy acrylic powders.

When it comes to autumn gel nails, we love a seasonal scene like this one. These little brown acorns and golden leaves perfectly encapsulate autumn, and we’re a huge fan of this burnt red hue. If you’re looking for autumn nail art ideas, this is one you can easily emulate yourself at home. 

Pick your favourite warm red shade from our gel polish collection or go a little darker with burgundy if you prefer. For the autumnal nail art, you’ll need to apply a base of white gel polish and use a fine nail art brush to freehand your design.

If you’re looking for autumn acrylic nails that stand out, try a design like these crystal-encrusted autumnal nails. The bronze, gold and earthy tones are perfect for this cosy season, while the glitter and gems give the look a little extra glamour. 

This design would work just as easily for acrylic or gel autumn nails and, while it has maximum impact, it can actually be achieved with relatively minimal effort! Once you’ve picked your desired seasonal shade, all you need to do is apply our Autumn Kiss Nail Glitter and finish off the look by glueing on some crystals and charms.

Next on our list is this lovely autumnal nails design! Pumpkins aren’t exclusive to Halloween nail art – they’re ideal for adding a creative touch to your autumn nails too. This look is perfect for gel autumn nails and is easy to try at home. All you need is a red gel polish for the base and the orange shade for your pumpkin that you can apply with a fine nail art brush. This design is great if you’re looking for a simple autumn nail art design that’s easy to master!

And last but not definitely not least is a multi-tonal manicure like this one. Can’t decide on your favourite autumnal hue? With this look, you don’t have to! If you’re looking for gel autumn nails that don’t require challenging autumn nail art, simply selecting a few warm gel polish colours is a quick and easy way to nail the trend. 

You can alternate between two or three colours for this look, or choose a different shade for each nail – just think about complementary colours that work well together. There are lots of options you can go for, from cinnamon and rich reds to deeper shades of burgundy. We also love the idea of adding a little glitter with shades like our Burnt Umber and Amber Lights.
