Micro dark French
For those who appreciate minimalism, the micro dark French manicure is an absolute winner. If SS23 was all about vibrant coloured French tips, now it’s time to embrace jet-black micro French tips with hints of other dark autumn shades. This chic reinterpretation of the classic French manicure exudes sophistication. With matte finishes regaining popularity during the AW months, consider a solid base colour with a matte finish for a trendy twist.
Chrome with a 3D nail twist
If you're still drawn to the mermaidcore trend, chrome nail effects should be your top pick. This season, draw inspiration from celestial elements with deep hues paired with contrasting chromes, resulting in a mesmerising underwater effect. For a Y2K twist, experiment with nail stickers to enhance the siren look or layering 3D chrome for a liquid gunmetal texture if you’re seeking something extra special.
Bid farewell to the "clean girl" manicure as now bold, edgy colours take centre stage. For this party season, incorporate deep reds, mossy greens, and inky blues onto the nails. The finish? A dark, enigmatic look that channels your inner rebel. You can elevate this trend with the aforementioned slim French tip in black or chocolate brown, add a touch of chrome swirls, or experiment with 3D accents for a blend of glamour and grunge.
Every year, the tortoiseshell manicure makes a graceful return with subtle variations and improved techniques. It involves layering rich, deep shades of black and brown between translucent yellow or orange layers, mimicking the elegance of tortoise patterns. Think about a marble effect in shades like mocha, spiced pumpkin, and maroon associated with 70s nails. These sumptuous colours complement all skin tones, making them the perfect choice for your party ensemble.
