If you've been working on your DIY manicure skills over the past six months in quarantine, chances are you have the polishing part down pat. But if you're feeling bored by your go-to fall polish, be it a burgundy red or a glossy navy, you might find yourself craving nail art.

From here, you could schedule a safe salon appointment. Or, if you're nervous and would rather keep your at-home routine, there are ways to make your nails look jazzed-up and trendy without the help of a professional or a striping brush. All you have to do is grab some nail-art stickers.

Luckily, with recent innovations in the nail-care space, press-on decals and appliqués have never been chicer. Scroll ahead to check out the best picks for fall.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
