The classic nude 'squoval' nail is over - over we tell you! In its place come three trends to take you through autumn and beyond. Hot right now is the jade nail initiated by Chanel. Rumour has it that ten shades were mixed and Karl picked the one that was a closest match to a Chanel green tweed suit. Well who wouldn't? Why not match yours to your favourite bigger-than-a-china-cup cocktail ring?
The next big thing going on in nails is the Return Of The Talon. Yep, long, witchy claws are de riguer, just ask John Galliano who showed purple talons at his AW09 Dior show. We actually prefer Cassie's bubblegum pink tips but hey, there's room for both.
Finally, don't fret if you still hanker after a neutral nail. The grey nail is the new nude, as seen at Matthew Williamson and Tuleh. Barry M has one that gives good coverage at an affordable price.
