A lot of Zoya fans are loving holos right now. It’s a simple way to make your nails the center of attention without too much work. Additionally, holographics are perfect for this time of year because they can make great transitionals for the fall months ahead. @Amazon_queen82 is wearing ZOYA Merida in this swatch. Check out all of ZOYA’s holographic polishes. 

90s Floral

The 90s are undoubtedly making a comeback, and that goes for 90s florals too. This kind of scattered negative space floral art is popping up everywhere and we think this trend will continue through early fall. Make use of your fun bright shades while you can! @Jackiemonttnails used the EasyNeon collection to create this look.

@Thepolishedstory did this fun skittle mani inspired by a book cover. Colorful skittles like this are perfect for back-to-school when it’s not quite fall yet and you haven’t grown tired of fun summer oranges like Zoya Sawyer. @Thepolishedstory also used ZOYA shades Mara, Stevie and Tweedy for this look. Anyone feel like matching their nails to their class textbooks now?

This beautiful negative space mani via Le Manoir is so effortless and classy. Red looks great in any season, and the shimmer in ZOYA Aphrodite just adds a spark to this simplistic look. Try this look with a darker red like Mila from the Nostalgic Collection for a more fall-themed look.
