5 Trends for Autumn Nails
Autumn is truly upon us and with the darker nights, colder days we are bound to feel a little bit gloomy. Where did that lovely long hot summer go we hear you ask? Well, if this weather is bringing you down and you need a pick me up, here are 5 trends for Autumn nails that are bound to brighten up your day.
Marble nail art seems to be the “in-thing” at the moment, and we are not complaining! We think the marble nail trend is a classic look and adds something extra to an otherwise simple nail design. You can create a marble effect on the nail using multiple acrylic powders in endless colourways!

Another nail art trend which seems to be circulating this autumn is metallic nail designs. There are hundreds of metallic colours to choose from, we particularly like rose gold and brown metallic nails to keep up with the autumnal theme. In order to create a metallic nail, buff a mirror powder on top of a gel top coat and voila!

Matte nails will never get boring in our opinion. We believe matte nails are elegant and classy but at the same time they are not obtrusive and overbearing like other nail art designs can be sometimes. Adding nail art crystals to a matte nail can really accentuate the design and bring it to life.

Gold foil nails.
These have to be the most elegant nail art designs we have seen for this autumn. You really can’t get more classic than a gold foil nail. Pair with a warm orange nail colour for an extra autumnal feel. If you’re looking to recreate this design try using gold flakes encapsulated under acrylic to create the perfect set.

Shattered glass nails.
You can’t go through this autumn without trying this nail trend. The shattered glass effect looks beautiful as an accent nail or even as a full set. This stunning iridescent look will go with almost any colour and is a must have this season. The perfect shattered glass effect can be created using angel paper cut up and encapsulated under acrylic.
