Hot off the AW22 runways, these trending nail colours are set to take the beauty world by storm this season.
Words by Claire Crehan
If there’s one thing in the beauty world that signifies the changing of the seasons, it’s updating your nail colour to complement your autumn/winter wardrobe!
Accompany your chunky knits, statement boots and cosy coats with this season’s must-have nail colours and get ready to snap that all-important shot for the ‘gram!
Here’s some of our favourite salon-worthy shades and where to find them at The Glades ready for your at-home manicure.
1. Rich Chocolate
As sported by the models at the Hermes AW22 fashion show, deep chocolate browns are a given when it comes to autumnal talons. Deeper than a nude, yet softer than a black, these rich shades are perfect for a range of skin tones and add a sophisticated edge to any outfit.
2. Crimson Red
You can’t go wrong with a classic red, and now is the perfect time to wear it! This trend will never go out of style, especially at this time of year. Looks just as fabulous on a shorter mani as it does on long pointy nails, and SO perfect at Christmas time.
3. All Over Chrome
The chrome trend took the beauty world by storm thanks to Hailey Bieber sharing snaps of her now-viral manicure earlier this year, coining the term ‘Glazed Donut Nails’ (and no we’re not talking about Krispy Kreme, though an Original Glazed would go down a treat!).
Think soft pearlescent chrome with a slightly sheer finish, giving a simple yet shimmery effect. Nail technicians will use a soft dusting of chrome powder over a thin layer of polish, but we’ve found some products that can create a similar look at home!
4. Olive Green
You can always rely on a shade of green to make the trending list for autumn nail colours, and this year it’s time for Olive Green to shine! With celebrity fans such as Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner, this neutral shade is incredibly wearable on most skin tones and feels much more paired-back and timeless than some of its brighter counterparts that were trending in the summer.
5. Cool Muted Lilac
If you want to swap your colourful summer tones for something a little more subtle then a cool lilac could be for you. Still offering a pop of colour, this grey-toned hue has a more neutral yet feminine feel that pairs well with any outfit.
6. Glossy Black
Black manicures always make a comeback around this time of year thanks to their timeless, classic look, and this year, the glossier the better. When paired with short, neatly manicured nails, this shade works perfectly and is a must for anyone who loves a bold look without the brights.
7. Cobalt Blue
One for the colour lovers, we can’t get enough of this gorgeous blue shade this season! Bright, bold and beautiful, cobalt blue is definitely a head-turner and not one for the faint hearted, but such a striking shade if you’re looking for something a little different.
