The Nail Files: AUTUMN

Each season we’ll be sharing a roundup of the hottest nail trends to try inspired by the world’s biggest fashion designers fresh from the catwalk.

Nail art is such an easy way to uplift and revamp your style in a subtle and unique way and the best bit is you can experiment with nails as much as you like without any longterm commitments. Just have fun with it and let your creative nail juices flow. Watch this space at the start of each new season and soak up new nail ideas ready for your next manicure appointment….

The nail designer created five cool nail art styles for Rachel Antonoff’s autumn / winter collection and this quirky red lip print and reversed black tip mani is our absolute favourite. Subtle yet sophisticated with a fun edge!
TRY IT: All you need is a decent black and off-white nail varnish to create the reserve mani- we’re obsessed with the Revlon Nail Enamel collection and the Sally Hanson Nail Art pen to very carefully replicate the little red lips

Ok, so you might not realistically be able to wear these nails to your next boardroom meeting for fear of not being taken too seriously but theres no denying these furry avant-garde nails go outside the box in terms of creativity! Also they make a great addition to your Halloween outfit. Click here for more Halloween inspiration

TRY IT: Go to your local haberdashery to buy the fur pieces and embroidered pieces of material to stick onto your nails. Just make sure you protect your nails with a good base coat to prevent the glue you use to stick the decorations on ruining your nails

With all of the edgy designs and out the box colour combinations a classic is always needed for those days when you just need something classy, perfect but still completely on point and trend. Introducing a new season plum as seen on the Preen catwalk. Nails are super shiny and rounded at the edges.
TRY IT: Essie, Sole Mate
This creamy, rich deep plum is the perfect autumnal colour to complete any ensemble.
