We asked them about this year’s emerging nail colour trends and found out which ones are likely to stay.

Deep reds

Our nail experts are banking on deep red colours like rich burgundy and bordeaux. And yes, we realise they’re also the name of famous wine regions in France. Burgundy works well as a stand-alone colour or in nail statement art. Think of creative ways you can use this deep red colour. Experiment with diagonal vertical lines, dagger shapes or something more abstract.
