Nothing sets an outfit more than a pop of colour on your nails, whether it's bright and bold for the summer months or deep and moody for winter.
With August in full swing and the cooler months bearing down upon us, we asked Scratch Nail & Beauty Salon owner and Creative Nail Technician of the Year, Chantal Welvaert what the hottest nail colours will be this coming autumn/winter.
Chantal's inspiration and trends for A/W19
There are so many different nail colours to choose from, you can go minimal with just one colour or you can mix it up with an accent nail. Nail art is huge now in the industry and very popular. You might be tempted to pick winter basics, but almost anything goes this season and it's all about how you decorate them. This could be as simple as adding some glitter or doing more than one colour on each nail. Your nail technician will help you to decide. Colour is the best part of a manicure or gels and at Scratch we make sure that the colours you choose matches your skin tone.
The big colour trends for A/W are:
Everything that glitters is gold
One of my favourite looks is a simple colour like a soft pink and decorate it and dress it up with a sprinkle of glitter. It's a classic winter design and an excellent choice if you want to add a touch of luxury to your seasonal nails.
Nice and neutral
You can't beat a classic nude shade, nudes are such a classic colour and the right nude can be a statement on your nails. One of my favourite nudes is Jessica's SOHO IN LOVE. Its a beautiful colour. You could add a feature to this colour to make it seasonal and still look very elegant.
Go for green
Adding different textures and shades of green is also in for this winter. Dark green matte is one of the looks for this autumn.
Red holiday nails
Red is one of our most popular colours in the winter and Christmas period. One of our favourite reds in-salon is 63 Moulin Rouge By Biogel. You can create a festive look by adding silver and white, plus this colour already comes with a hint of gold sparkle - perfect for getting you into the festive spirit.
Colour plays a huge part on your nails, a little pop of colour in the winter months makes it a little less dreary. At Scratch we like a luxuriously smooth application and eye-catching glossy finish - perfect for every occasion!
