Who’s ready for a change of scenery? Us too. The new season’s arriving any minute and to get a kickstart on the autumn nail trends, we asked our favourite nail artists to spill the deets on their top trend predictions for the nail art and nail shades we’ll be wearing for the season ahead, whether you’re more of a mani minimalist, or you want something super statement.
So, if you want to swot up (and jump in) early, here’s the autumn nail trends to have on your radar…
“Dark French tips on a sheer natural base, like a black tip, are big,” confirms top nail artist, Harriet Westmoreland. “They’re delicate with a bit of an edge,” she explains. “I think the ‘cool girl’ shape will be a long almond, with a nod to the grunge trend. So a deep french in colours like Lady in Black and Malaga Wine by OPI,” Harriet says.
“Everyone will be asking for deep coloured Frenchies,” agrees luxury manicurist, Julia Diogo (@paintedbyjools).” If you prefer a shorter shape, squoval micro Frenchies are the way forward. Try rouge noir, black, brow or deep forest greens.
