Crunchy leaves, warm crackling bonfires, pumpkin patches and soothing sunsets – if autumn was a colour it would most certainly be amber.

Which is why we’re such fans of Amber Velvet nails, the latest seasonal nail trend to surface as we head into October.

First seen on content creator Melanie Graves, who always has the freshest manicures, Amber Velvet nails are a wonderfully warm and sparkly shade of amber – the perfect first step away from the pastels and blueberry milks of summer. 

Forget forest greens, dark neutrals, browns and reds – the colours that usually take over our nail inspo Pinterest boards this time of year – the Amber Velvet shade offers a fun and fresh take on autumn, with a shimmery nod to the festive season to come.

Plus, the gold tones offer an expensive finish, bringing up the sophistication of glittery nails up a notch or two (or ten).

As Melanie wrote on Instagram: ‘It’s giving changing fall leaves but make it sparkly. It’s magical.’

It certainly is magical, and we can guarantee you’ll be seeing this shade all over in the months to come.

Take Melanie’s picture into your salon for inspo or, for the DIY girlies, opt for a coat of amber or a warm orange nail varnish and top it off with a gold or amber shimmer.

Or, if you’re a ‘one and you’re done’ low maintenance kind of girl, we’ve got some options below you’ll love.
