With so many different types of nail art trending, you won't have any trouble finding a style that works for you.

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.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
