Beauty & Fashion

With Labor Day marking the last days of summer, I guess it's time to start thinking about fall beauty trends. Since nail art is one of the simplest ways to make a change with minimal risk, we wanted to give you some new ideas to try.

With so many different types of nail art trending, you won't have any trouble finding a style that works for you. Whether you're digging the manicured oval shaped look or you're in the mood to go artsy; this list has inspiration to get your inner creative flowing before your next mani. Keep in mind you have all cuffing season long to try as many new styles as your heart desires.

Here are fourteen nail ideas to ask your nail tech to try this fall.

21st Century Girl

Channel your inner galactic goddess with your own mani inspired by Sica Mojica. One of the things I like about this set other than the adorable nail art is the dark blue hue that's used. It shows us we can go dark without going reaching for black polish.

Spotted

When it comes to nails, if you are a clear-polish-and-go kinda girl, adding white polish with a negative space design might be the perfect middle ground for you to try something new.

The Textures Have It

Go print or go home. Okay, this caption might have been a little lame, but you can never go wrong with a textured print on your nails or in your wardrobe.

Double Negative

Negative space nails are a trend that isn't letting up which means there's more time to explore nail art style with any color palette you choose.

Send Nudes

Who said nudes have to be boring? Take you next mani up a notch with a little inspiration from the talented nails artists at New Orleans' Mad Nails.

Elevated French

If you live in Detroit, you'll want to make a stop by The Ten Nail Bar as it is black-owned, and you can guarantee you'll leave with a set of nails you'll want to show off. Forget the traditional french mani, and try this one on. If you're still feeling unsure about trying something new, this style hit the runways of fashion week, so you'll be ahead of the curve.

Pop-Off With Pop Art

These glossy black, pop art nails remind us that we can wear love and hope on our sleeves and our nails.

Complementary Hues

A nude and coral combination is something I never would have thought to try, but this look takes two hues that complement dark skin and gives them new life.

Art Deco Chic

Art-inspired nails are a big trend this fall, and these nails take a summer staple (the white polish) and add a fall trend.

Minimal, But Make It Fashion

If you're not following Gracie J for nail inspo, you're missing out. The editorial nail artists' work gives me nail envy, and this purple look is one that will complement your fall fashion fits.

Go Neutral

Neutrals don't mean you can't have some fun. These adorable oval-shaped nails will be a conversation piece at your next happy hour.

The Tortoise & The Nude

The Nail Art Fairy is one of my favorite nail artists on Instagram. I think this nude and tortoise shell combo shows you why.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

When I think about actresses who have been cultural figures throughout my lifetime, Gabrielle Union-Wade is truly one of the first names that come to mind. I can recall being on the playground in grade school urging my friends to learn the cheer routines from Bring it On just as easily as I can remember a few years ago watching Being Mary Jane, crying from the relatability of Mary Jane's life struggles (a story for another day). It's inspiring to watch a powerful black woman whose art has been a consistent source of entertainment and influence. Although I must say, I think many of us have grown to cherish her personal journey and stories just as much.

Feed-in braids have become one of the hottest hair trends on the scene. These types of braids are created by "feeding-in" pieces of hair extensions to the main braid so that it gradually grows in size. It gives the illusion that the hair is directly growing from the scalp, which comes in clutch for styles that requires synthetic hair. This type of styling allows for a more natural look at the hairline and it protects your edges and hairline from excessive tension from heavy hair extensions thus, reducing the likelihood of traction alopecia (or loss of hair from the hairline.) And for women of color, tight braids or pulling the hair back too tight is one leading cause of this type of hair loss.

As the winds cool and the leaves change colors, it is without fail that I get this invigorating feeling. Potentially a feeling left over from childhood where every September presents a new opportunity to reinvent yourself, or possibly the contagious buzz of fashion weeks across the globe with streets lined with inspiration for how to style fall's hottest trends. Regardless, there's no doubt that my love of fashion rears its head at this time and always pulls me back into the fold. The fun, albeit overwhelming, thing about this season is the sheer volume of trends presented on the runways. In many ways, we're taking a trip down memory lane, but in other ways, we're seeing the rules of fashion being reinvented in front of our eyes.

When we think of R&B, we think of soul. Soul, by definition, is emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance. Black people are soul. Everything about us. Our hair. Our energy. Our skin. And, without a doubt, the creativity that courses through every inch of who we are. So, when it comes to our music, spiritual experiences are often what we call them. Makes sense, for there are no other people who remain unbroken the way we do. And every so often, an artist comes along who seems to be the physical manifestation of all that we are.
