This Classic, Expensive-Looking Nail Colour Is All I'll Be Wearing This Autumn

Choosing a nail colour is hard, right? You don't want to end up going for the wrong shade when you know that you'll be stuck with it for weeks, and you also want to make sure you go for something that will match all of your upcoming outfits. Luckily for you, I have the perfect hue for autumn. That's right, I'm talking about burgundy nails.

I have never, ever regretted going for this chic colour, and my nails always look so expensive whenever I leave the salon with a burgundy mani. What I love about this nail colour is that it's just that little bit lighter than black, yet it still carries that same timeless, classic feel that a monochrome mani manages to achieve every single time. 

The colour itself is a mix between a deep purple and a dark red, and I happen to think that it complements all skin tones. Although I always tend to opt for a glossy finish, there are so many ways to wear this trend, from a matte burgundy mani to a subtle French tip. I'm already seeing some of my favourite celebs incorporate this colour into their autumn nail wardrobes (including none other than Sofia Richie Grainge), and the hashtag #burgundynails has over 14 million views on TikTok. I just know that this number will increase as the weather gets colder, and I have no doubt that soon, everyone will be wearing this stylish nail shade.
