Rachel Horrocks, the amazing artist behind @Crackersaboutlacquers dives into the Autumn colour trends she is loving and where you can find each shade. 

With summer coming to an end *sobs a little* we’re all sadly putting the pastels, florals, neons and nautical prints away and looking to what’s next on our nails. Luckily, I happen to LOVE autumnal colours and 2016 is no different.

This year there’s a slightly hazy-dusky tone to the colours (a blue-hue as it were). Here are this year’s colour trends and which brands are doing these colour-perfect polishes:
