If there’s a single colour to add to your nail polish collection this autumn, it’s brown.

You may disagree with me now, but let me tell you why you should add this cocoa colour to your palette.

Personally, I was never a fan of the colour brown until I saw Lily James’ luscious chocolate-coloured nails for the 2022 Emmy Awards.

Compared to black, brown feels more warm and luxurious. Whether it’s clothing or make up, it’s one of the most underrated shades out there IMHO.

It pairs well with almost every colour. Brown has a calming neutrality that works great with brights or pastels fashion pieces to create a perfectly balanced look.

Most people hesitate to choose brown nail polish because they’re afraid it may not look flattering with their skin tone.

Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s simply not true!

This earthy colour has a shade that flatters every skin tone. From Walnut to Umber, brown will look great on you whether you’re fair or dark-skinned.

Here’s an edit of some brown polishes that will look great on your nails this autumn.
