Julie Kandalec's Instagram page is our festive inspiration

Fall beauty can get tricky especially when it comes to keeping up with all the emerging trends - from glitter eyes to geometric liners to poplin skirts, the fall look got some funky new festive edits post the fashion months, and we must explore.

Luckily, our frantic Insta-browsing helps us locate some of the most relevant stylists who can help us keep up with all that is hot this season. If you're searching cool nail art for Diwali or Halloween, we have you covered.

Nail artiste Julie Kandelac is serving up some of the fiercest nail art for names like Gigi Hadid, Emma Roberts, Lucy Boynton, Kaley Cuoco. Not only does Julie work with some of the renowned names, but she also used to be a henna artiste a decade back. You can also spot some very chic and achievable mehendi-inspired nail art on her page.


Is it Diwali yet?

This bejewelled nail art is our mood this season, and it's also very achievable.

The negative way

Negative space is a huge trend in the nail art spectrum and geometric bare lines can revamp any basic manicure. Julie puts a spin on a basic red gel manicure by using the negative space design.

Floral power

Wildflower art on sheer or neutral bases is a huge fall hit. You can also go for some abstract or kitschy prints.
