Sorry Cara, but it’s official, nails are the new brows. Not that we’ll be letting our brows grow  all natural and overgrown, they’re not that over and done with. But preening, polishing and dressing up our nails is the new beauty must-have.

I don’t know about you, but when my nails are groomed to perfection, I feel as glamorous as Miranda Priestly, and no that film never gets old.

As well as all other beauty looks and trends, each season an array of newness launches into our shops. So time to retire your summer brights in favour of the newest colours for AW16. Bring these colours with you to your local salon, or set yourself up for an evening of pampering.

Dark:

Dark tones and hues are huge for AW16, and go for polishes with less of a high shine, stick with more muted and matte tones

Nudes:
