Maybe you don't have the patience. Maybe you don't have a steady hand. Maybe you don't have a dotting tool. There are many reasons to avoid DIY-ing nail art; we can't all create tiny masterpieces on our fingers. That's where gradient nails come in. It doesn't get any easier than painting each tip a different color, yet the trend can have as much impact as intricate nail art.
Even better, all it takes to work and wear fall gradient nails is sporting the right color palette. Autumnal hues just might be the best of any season—think shades of falling leaves, vampy reds, and rich chocolate browns. And to prove it, we've rounded up the best fall gradient nail looks from Insta. Get ready to celebrate the spooky season with this inspo.
