With autumn looming on, major nail polish companies have already started coming out with new collections of nails colours just in time for the season.

As leaves change colour, so should we in terms of nail polish. Step away from the bright, summery neons and opt for more sophisticated dark colours. Some hues just keep coming up season after season but others are set to take the nail world by storm. Read on to see the key colours trending across all collections.

  • Dark greenish grey ~ THE colour of the season! Look out for polishes that look grey in the bottle but have very strong green undertones on closer inspection. Feeling flash? Try O.P.I Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! Strapped for cash? Try Essie Stylenomics.
  • Dark Red ~ a staple colour that never goes out of fashion and exudes glamour and class paired with perfectly manicured hands and nails. Feeling flash? Try China Glaze Adventure Red-y Strapped for cash? Try Essence Colour & Go 113 Do You Speak Love?
  • Dusty Light Brown ~ Autumn’s nude hue! Add some sparkly glitter polish to up the wow factor without ruining the neutral effect. Feeling flash? Try O.P.I. Berlin There Done That Strapped for cash? Try E.L.F. Cosmetics Desert Haze.
  • Deep Plum/Burgundy ~ This sophisticated colour looks almost black and will have people looking twice as they start to notice the purplish undertones of the polish. Feeling flash? Try Zoya Toni Strapped for cash? Try Essie Recessionista.
