The must-try nail colours we’re coveting as it gets colder
Moody hues for overcast days

It’s officially autumn here in Australia and while most may associate the season with satisfying hot beverages, a change in temperature and a whole lot of colour-changing foliage – all we can think of when the weather turns is what nail polish colour we’re going to be lacquering on for the season.
It’s the little things, ya know.
This autumn-winter, we’re reaching for moody, muted tones like grey-hued neutrals, rich greens, sumptuous wine shades, and earth-inspired mid-tones that can carry you from a long day at the office to an intimate dinner with friends.
Here are our must-try nail colours for the season.
Smith & Cult in ‘Seek Me Out’
Your classic red nail polish just got a makeover. This season we’re amping up the scarlet shade with a rich inflection of berry-hued shimmer for a cherry bomb explosion of jewel-hued tips that are sure to turn a few heads.

DIOR Rouge Dior Vernis Grege 413
Nude as you know it just got a little bit dirty. Forget bubbly pinky nudes because this ‘Grége’ hue is the cool-girl answer to a lowkey neutral nail.
$43 at David Jones
Smith & Cult Darjeeling Darling
Reach for some cool-toned refreshment in the form of this pine-green lacquer. Boasting an impressive but subtle sheen, this pick is sure to bring in a few compliments.

OPI Infinite Shine Staying Neutral Nail Varnish
Warm-toned greys are the perfect answer to autumn-friendly neutrals. Pair with cashmere in a similar hue for a *very necessary* monochromatic moment.
