Looking to jazz up your next manicure? We are constantly striving for something new, something personalised, something unique – in the beauty business, the go to way of achieving such desirable talons is nail art.
With the highest skill levels (and patience!), celebrity nail artists have shot to fame in their own right, with the likes of Madeline Poole, Chelsea King and Tom Bachik each having an Instagram following of over 100K followers.
So what’s the must have trends for autumn 2017?
Jewels – add an extra sparkle to an otherwise basic colour with miniature gems. We love these metallic and monochrome gems.

The Black Stripe – Apply a black stripe to the edge of your nails for a 3D effect. Tip: use a black marker pen if you haven’t got the steadiest hand!

Monogram Nails – You can’t get more personalised than spelling out your own name! Purchase alphabet stickers from nail art / beauty stockists for quick and easy application.

Rose Gold Chrome – The chrome nail trend isn’t disappearing any time soon, shy away from bright gold and silvers and opt for a sophisticated rose gold.
