This AW13, be prepared for the most eclectic nail trends that have been seen in a while. Whilst more minimalist that velvet or caviar nails, these nail trends are definitely not ones to be underrated. Simple enough to try on your own at home without splurging on a professional nail job, but glamorous enough that they’ve been seen on every runway this season, your nails will be the making of your outfit this autumn.
1. Metallic nails: Metallic nails are breaking the boundaries this season. Rather than sticking to the usual gold, silver and bronze shimmery hues, metallic is branching out onto every colour imaginable, giving your nails a strikingly 3D feel.
2. Electric hues: Far gone are the days of overly feminine pastel pink, mint green and soft nudes. Instead, we’re welcoming sharp, intense and brilliant electric shades, designed to brilliantly blind and dazzle. Think hot fuchsias, bright oranges and deep sea blues.
3. Matt nails: Forget about a high shine luxe finish, this season is playing nails very low key, but very indulgent. Shine free finishes are the hottest collective trend seen on the AW13 runways right now, and so easy to mimick. Topshop offer a brilliant Matt range, in a wide variety of autumnal shades.
4. Earthy/ Berry hues: In true AW style, no nail trend list would be complete without the standard formula of true autumnal colours. A strong oxblood, forest green, burgundy brown and berry purple never go amiss.
