The 15 Coolest Nail Designs for Fall 2019

As you gear up your wardrobe for the cold-weather season (and your shoe lineup and your outerwear collection), you should also consider freshening up your beauty routine. That means stocking up on some extra-hydrating face moisturizers (we all know what the dry air can do to our complexion), invest in a good bronzing powder for when you want that summer glow in the dead of winter, and, of course, dig out those rich, deep-hued lipsticks you've been dying to wear all summer long but couldn't get yourself to pick over that lightweight lipgloss. 

Once all those aforementioned products are set and ready for fall's arrival, it's time to book an appointment with your go-to manicurist, because, well, it's doesn't really feel like fall until you sip on that PSL (who else is ecstatic for its return?), light a candle, and sport some fall-inspired nail art, right? Right.
