Dark matte nail colour with a glossy french tip work beautifully,” Iram reveals. “It can be kept minimal or, depending on the colour, can become a statement look. Everyone’s loving french manicures so we will definitely be seeing some dark tips in the mix moving into autumn,” she adds.

Dinky tips aren’t new, but they’ll be getting a seasonal makeover. “Dark micro french tips, created with black, or dark green polish, will be popular,” reveals luxury manicurist, Julia Diogo, who recommends “using darker shades with sheer nude bases to compliment your skin tone.” The bonus? You can nod to this season’s biggest nail shades without the commitment. “It’s such a versatile design and perfect for the nail art minimalist, you can embrace the seasonal colours without committing to a block colour,” explains manicurist and minimal nail artist, Georgia Rae.

Cut-out cuffs

Following on from negative space manis, if you want to incorporate a design element into block colour, a simple cut-out detail at the cuticle can be super effective.

Chrome Details

If you’re looking for a bit of glitz, ‘Chrome Details’ will do just the trick.

Snakeskin Mani

“At the moment punchy dot manicures using [The Gel Bottle Inc’s] blooming gels are really popular,” says Michelle. They help to create a blurred watercolour effect for tie-dye, marble and snakeskin patterns. “Snakeskin mani’s are hot for the nail art maximalist.”

Negative Space Manis

This is the trend where part of the nail bed is kept translucent, nude or sheer pink, so it looks like the design is floating on the top.

Retro swirls

Seventies styles and patterns have infiltrated our wardrobes and they’re playing out across our nails, too. “Retro swirls will still be very much trending,” predicts Julia, “again with the use of dark colours and a pop of white.” Nail maximalists can up the ante with bold and bright hues incorporating saturated seventies sunflower and turtle green shades.
