Amber Velvet nails join ever-growing list of trending styles for autumn

The name of this new nail trend alone is so appealing.

The list of nail trends for autumn is always a lengthy one and I put this down to the beautiful colours that are inspired by the season.

Latte nails, dark cherry red, syrup nails, and autumn french are just some of the 2023 A/W nail trends we’ve seen take over our feeds so far.

This newest one to join the gorgeous list is Amber Velvet nails.

It’s task enough sitting in the hot seat of your nail salon sifting through the extensive range of colours, so when a nail trend emerges that is as striking as it is popular, it makes the decision a hell of a lot easier.

The velvet appearance is an optical illusion that is created with a specific type of polish formula. It gives that dimensional and velvety finish.

Adding the amber colour into the technique is simply keeping with the theme of autumn, but you don’t have to abide by this.
The trend has seen many nail artists this season taking advantage of autumn’s gorgeous colour wheel, drawing artistic inspiration of other seasonal tones such as almond, red, browns, greens and so on.
