While nail shape trends are still obsessed with OTT length, think Rihanna, Jessie J, Rita Ora etc, more natural looks seen on the AW13 runways included short and square nails with rounded edges, or soft almond shapes with a little length.
But what do you paint onto those talons? Here's the top 5 nail shade trends with our fave polish to get the look...
True red nail colour
For this look, keep it bright, bold and classic, with a nod to retro glamour and femme fatales.
Burgundy nail shade
Burgundy, oxblood, wine, cherry noir, whatever you like to call it. The rich hue is in for AW13 as seen on Victoria Beckham and Millie Mackintosh.
Emerald green nails work with a darker colour
It's glamour all the way with this jewel shade, which also works well as a feature nail teamed with a darker hue.
Navy blue nail shade
Get the back to school blues in the best way ever with fashion and beauty's new navy obsession. Dark blue works too.
Classic black nail colour
Though an annual trend gothic black is back with added gloss and whole load of polish. Make sure you layer up the top coat.
