How To Embrace This Season’s Uplifting Nail Shades
NailberryCherry Cherie Oxygenated Nail Lacquer, £16.00
The Robust Red
There’s nothing bolder than a true red. It makes a statement, gives an added confidence boost and brings a welcome pop of colour to these somewhat grey days. Nailberry’s founder Sonia Hully dubs a vibrant red manicure as ‘strong and purposeful.”

The Winter White
“For those who are typically drawn to nude shades, off-white and creams are a good alternative for you this season,” says Krisztina van der Boom, co-owner of DryBy London. “Winter whites resonate so much with frost and a silver lining - something we’re all looking for right now.” Krisztina’s top tip? Try layering similar shades for a bespoke colour. We’ve been experimenting with Nailberry’s White Mist and Almond shades.
NailberryPink Tulip Oxygenated Nail Lacquer, £16.00
The Punchy Pink
Feeling overwhelmed and downbeat? A dash of bright pink is bound to bring a smile and shouldn’t just be considered a high summer choice. Two quick coats and a high shine top coat will do the trick. If you’re feeling experimental (or should we say steady-handed), try a strip of colour along the tip for a fresh take on the French manicure.

The Deep Burgundy
Inspired by this year’s happenings, Sonia wanted her AW20 collection (which of course features a rich Malbec red) to induce comfort and warmth - something we’re all seeking right now. “This autumnal burgundy shade (aptly named Grateful) felt very right for the season as we end this year.”
NailberryMinty Fresh Oxygenated Nail Lacquer, £16.00
The Soft Green
Green might not be a shade you think of in the midst of winter, but this subtle sage shade sits well on all skin tones and brings with it an instant freshness. “If you seek a more understated yet nonetheless sophisticated look, try minimal, natural tones like this,” says Sonia. You can even try customising your usual nude manicure and use this on one nail as an accent.
