If you’re on the hunt for the perfect way to revamp your fall aesthetic, look no further than this season’s latest nail trend: the hot chocolate manicure. Trust us; it’s as comforting and delightful as sipping on a cup of hot cocoa by a cosy fire. And it’s even got the ultimate symbol of approval, given how celebrities are absolutely smitten with this trend.
The hot chocolate nail trend has been brewing for a while now. Most recently, Emma Chamberlain posted sultry mirror selfies sporting the cocoa manicure, which she tied together with a smokey eye, brown-berry toned lips, an Ariana Grande-reminiscent high ponytail and a sexy white bikini top.
Meanwhile, closer to home, actor Sonakshi Sinha, who also happens to be the founder of the clip-on nails beauty brand Soezi, perfectly embodied the fall aesthetic with her warm-toned chocolate brown manicure. It harmonised beautifully with the brown leaves on her printed floral Indo-fusion ensemble and complemented her stunning stack of rings.
Back in 2022, the fabulous Lily James ‘nailed’ her Emmy Awards look with a cocoa manicure created using Chanel’s Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 957 Impulsion, a delectable chocolate brown hue. Fast forward to mid 2023, and Selena Gomez graced us with a snapshot of her nails, resembling a shot of espresso.
Hailey Bieber, always one to add her unique touch to any trend, elevated the hot cocoa look by adding a touch of chrome. And honestly, we’re all here for it!
Shay Mitchell couldn’t resist jumping on the bandwagon, sporting hot chocolate nails and matching wavy locks in a selfie, while flaunting one of her Béis bags. We’re taking notes and planning to steal this entire look this season.
Hot chocolate nails exude a luxurious and velvety look that suits everyone. If you usually lean towards darker nail shades and crave something fresh for the upcoming fall season, this is the trend for you. The best part? This decadent neutral can be worn all year long and complements all skin tones, nail shapes, and lengths.
The versatility of hot chocolate nails is simply irresistible. You can go for a gradient, add some glitter, opt for glossy French tips or even embellish them with gems. Instagram enthusiasts have taken this trend and given it a unique twist, creating nail art that’s as stunning as it is imaginative.
So, it’s time to treat your nails to a decadent cup of hot cocoa. Your nails will thank you, and your style will be sweeter than ever.
