If you’ve swapped over from cold frappe drinks to something steeped and steamy, welcome to autumn. We needed an update to our caffeine fix, but mocha nails are proof that this season’s hottest beverages (I meant that literally) don’t strictly need to come in a keep cup.
Things are beginning to look a lot cosier, starting with the season’s trending tones dialling up the colour scale towards deep, rich, earthy, delicious shades that, for the most part, are food or drink inspired. Latte nails have already spiked with pretty, golden, café au lait toned nails bridging the transition from summer to autumn.
But now, we’ve noticed a whole troupe of even deeper browns cropping up across our social feeds, specifically chocolatey mochas. We get it, because not only are they a neutral that goes with everything, but they bring the snuggly vibes and look properly sleek and stylish while they’re at it.
The shade works beautifully on short or long nails, and across a whole range of shapes (especially almond, since mocha is on the almond colour spectrum). We’ve seen the trend worn colour-blocked across all nails, we’ve seen it given a glow-up with a glazed top coat, we’ve seen it worn Frenchie-style across the tips, we’ve seen it matte and we’ve seen it mega shiny. So within the trend there’s still plenty of ways to personalise it to you.
Here are 11 of our favourite ways to wear mocha nails…
