A change in season calls for a change in chromatic inspiration. If you’re ready to ditch you classic go-to nail shade in favour of something more playful, consider these autumn inspired nail art ideas.

If a colour scheme sounds more like a warm beverage, it’s officially autumn appropriate.

If you’re only into single colours but don’t want your go-to red or nude, try an earthy shade of green instead. Give the look some glamour with a glossy finish.

Make like you’re cleansing your aura, warding off negative energy and embracing the season all at once with a warm-toned rutilated quartz inspired nail look. 

Autumn Meets #Cottagecore

Worldwide lockdowns gave rise to the internet aesthetic Cottagecore, which embraces a romanticised view of slow living and rural life. The trend happens to suit this season perfectly well, so why not rock it on your nails? 

Mix & Match With Autumnal Palette

Mix and match your designs – animal print, floral, striped. No need to stick to a single design here to keep to an autumnal vibe, just keep to a limited colour palette and you can’t go wrong.
