Geometric nails are the ultra-precise manicure trend you need to try for fall

Earlier this summer, we couldn’t stop raving about the influx of nail trends on our Instagram feeds that were, for lack of a better term, super chill. Think back to looks like speckle nails and flame nails—gorgeous, for sure, but not exactly precise or requiring a great deal of brow sweat inducing concentration.

But now that summer is almost over (sorry) and fall is just around the corner, it’s time to let the precision of Virgo season make its mark on our nails. If you’re itching for a change in the nail department as the weather cools, have we got a good one for you.

Enter: geometric nails.

The multi-colored, pin-straight shapes are perfect for back to school season (hello, geometry class), even if you’re not in school. They’re at once ’70s-inspired, modern, and 100% mesmerizing. Browse our favorite geometric nails on Instagram for inspo.
