Fall Nails: Kehlani’s Sapphire-Hue Nails are Inspiring a Blue Manicure Mood This Autumn

A hand with dark-blue nails

September is here, which means we’re officially ready to dive into the moody hues and drama that fall fashion brings. However, with lingering high temperatures keeping our sweaters and boots packed away for a little while longer, we’re starting our autumn transition with our nails — and Kehlani is leading the way with some serious fall 2022 manicure inspiration.

While celebs like Selena Gomez have recently been spotted with earthy green nails (also a fall fave), Kehlani’s latest mani colour comes straight from the sea. As showcased in Allure, the R&B singer shared a glimpse at her sapphire-blue, stiletto-shaped manicure in an Instagram carousel on August 30.

While the blue hue may also be an ode to Kehlani’s Blue Water Road album (and tour), richly saturated blue tones are a sophisticated, statement-making choice for anyone. Here are some options to consider if you want to snag a similar shade:
