2. All-Over Leopard

With a clear-coat base and an all-over pattern, these leopard print nails are giving us major heart eyes. And hey, you know what they say: all good things are wild and free.
3. Tortoise Touches

There’s no doubt that tortoise shell is one of the “it” accessories of autumn, so why not pair it with a pretty-in-pink classic, too? The fact is, tortoise shell will never go away—which means it always goes with any summery shade you can imagine.
4. Cheetah Chic
Credit: @mcc_nails_True, you could labor over leopard rosettes (totally worth it, tbh)—or you could consider these cheetah-chic accents. While you’re at it, turn it up a notch with effortless shimmer details paired with a bold autumnal blue, just like @mcc_nails_ did.
5. Cow Print Cuties

And yeah, Kendall Jenner might have been the first to rock this underrated animal print, but you’re here to make it last. Oh, and that gold accent on the tips? Talk about chic-tastic. (Psst...delicate gold rings optional, but highly recommended.)—Love what you see?
