Styling Burnt Orange Nails

Our favorite quality about this color is how well it works with all nail lengths.

Burnt orange will flatter short, rounded nails as well as long coffin nail plates.

One thing we would be wary of, is the design we choose for each nail length.

Longer nail lengths in burnt orange would pair better with jewels and accents to emphasize the length.

On the other hand, shorter round nail lengths look cute with mini designs using a complementary shade.

Some shades that work well with burnt orange are baby pink, dark olive green, gold, white, and nude.  

For subtle designs, try burnt orange french tips or if you’re going all out, burnt orange with cheetah print accents on one nail – one of our favorites this season!

Nail Care Tips for Burnt Orange Nails

Start with clean, moisturized hands.

Not moisturizing regularly is the biggest faux-pas you could do after getting a manicure.

After prepping hands, apply a base coat of your chosen color.

Once you have a solid foundation, you can start working through your design.

Make sure you apply thin coats to stop your nail paint from looking clunky. 

After you’re done with the manicure, make sure you’re gentle with your nails to make your nail treatment last long.  

Apart from reflecting the color of the most beautiful time of the year – fall, burnt orange nails look stunning across seasons.

We love pairing them with gold jewelry to create a chic look.

Pair your burnt orange nails with statement white or black pieces from your wardrobe to really make them stand out and let the compliments pour in!
