Following our hugely popular blog about Spring/Summer nail colour trends earlier in the year *takes a bow*, I'm back with my top trend tips for nails and hand care for Autumn/Winter.
Not for the faint hearted
The grey skies and falling leaves of autumn may be almost upon us, but the key trends for your fall nails are far from dull. NuBar are showcasing a seriously sexy near-fluorescent coral/pink as well as a matt grass/sage green this season.
Both are really on-trend, picking up on the signature colours of the Sass and Bide fall 2011 show and the optimistic shades found in Christian Louboutin's fall 2011 collection.
Spa Ritual are heading up our top tips for winter with their uber-festive Instinct shimmer in pearlesque purple and Spirit Child shimmer in radiant red.
Both are very glam and would spice up that little black dress for the office party no end.
Tall, dark and handsome
Ok, so we can't promise you'll find your Prince Charming under the mistletoe, but Leighton Denny's glorious gun metal grey polish will ensure your nails are looking a-mazing, should you stumble across your knight in shining armour. (And your nail colour will match his armour, too!)
Conker the world
New Year may seem a while away now, but we're predicting that you'll be harking back to autumn by the beginning of 2012 with glorious conker-browns. Mavala's glorious dark brown is creamy, rich and a little bit lavish. All that, yet somehow tastefully understated, too. Perfect!
And finally ...
No matter how nice your nail colour is, if your hands are letting the side down, then your elaborate smoke-and-mirrors illusion will be shattered. To make sure your hands are well moisturised and looking their very best, we highly recommend Spa Ritual's Handprint hand serum. A little of this slick, silky liquid goes a long way. It'll help you protect your hands from the harsh winds of autumn and winter.

Minimalist lines; organic products; facial massage; tranquillity; interesting people-watching.
Discarded towels on loungers; steam rooms that aren't steamy; mobile phones.
