Say hello to the hottest nail trend that’s happening right now "Hot Chocolate" nails. If you've been leaning towards nude shades, vampy reds, or even the darker shades of fall and winter, brown manicures are definitely something you should add to your to try list.
The sudden rise in popularity of brown shades could be attributed to various factors, including the transition from hot to cold seasons or the influence of Hailey Bieber or this year's viral Y2K colour and pattern trends. Dark and chocolate browns give off a coziness and warmth, which could explain why milk chocolate, mocha and dark caramel shades are becoming popular during the colder months.
Whether you prefer to test out this trend with a subtle nail art design, a classic brown French tip, or simply a skittle of brown shades, hot chocolate nails are remarkably versatile and are sure to leave a lasting impression on everyone that sets their eye on them.
