Want to nail your mani-pedi this autumn? Then put down your cuticle cream and read on. Cos we’ve done some serious scroll time to bring you all the biggest nail trends for the new season. And, since we’re not all Kardashians, we’ve teamed up with one of our fave nail brands, Colour by TBN, to help you get the look for less.
At under $3 a pop, they have a colour for every day of the month. And then some. Here are the on-trend nail hues and do’s you should be coveting right now.
Nudey, browny nails are hotter than hot chocolate for autumn-winter. Heck, if it’s good enough for Chanel, we’re buying mocha polish in bulk! Richer tones are gorgeous against porcelain mitts, while olive skin tones can rock a true nude like nobody’s business.

The international catwalks were crawling with dark, vampy nails for Fall 2016/17. Which means the trend is trickling down to the Southern Hemisphere right now. Channel your inner Morticia with inky fingertips to match your goth-inspired pout (another super-hot autumn beauty trend). Don’t just think black either; try deep purples, plums and burgundies too.

If you get the snores from matte nails, jump on board the glitter train. Apply over the entire nail, or just the tips for a fresh new take on the classic French mani. (Or try a half-moon at the base of your nail bed if you’re blessed with a steady hand). Choose from dark, galactic gunmetal and molten gold, or more ethereal scatterings of pale silver.

Why stick with just one colour? Two-tone manis are double the fun. Case in point? The snow-capped talons at Fenty X Puma by Rihanna. To recreate this look, you’ll need Colour by TBN’s Black Beauty and Polar Bear polishes. But we also think it’s kinda fun to colour clash. Pink and black, purple and orange. Get yo’ freak on, bellas!

Green with Envy
You’ll be seeing green this autumn. Literally. Thankfully our mates at Colour by TBN have us green-eyed monsters catered for with 11 greens to choose from! To be totally on point, opt for darker shades or versatile khaki.
