No shoe shine required.

During the cooler months, we all love those go-to dark manicure shades of black, burgundy reds and majestic blue. But if those nail polish options start to feel stale for you, we’re putting a new nail trend for fall and winter 2022 on your radar: Patent leather nails.

Don’t confuse the nail trend with your Sunday school patent leather Mary Jane’s your mother made you wear to church. Patent leather nails are high-volume, short, and moody, with a glossy, mirror-like finish. They make the perfect Instagram hand selfie accessory when reaching for a cup of cocoa or that glass of Cabernet while on a hot Tinder date. However, for those who like longer nail lengths, there’s space for you to try patent nails — however, keeping the size simple and short is the key to making the look head-turning.

If you care to DIY or visit your nail tech, we’ve included a few examples that even Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez would approve.
